The Red Bull SoundClash, a southern showdown as big as Texas. Who doesn’t appreciate a good Versus competition? 713 Music Hall served as the battlegrounds of an epic matchup between two Texas legends. The one and only Gary Clark Jr. representing the Lone Star state capital and Team Austin. Representing for Team Houston, we had, “The People’s Champ” AKA Paul Wall. You already know.
Two stages. Two entirely different sounds. Two icons in their respective genres. All under one roof and packed with the best fans who love and appreciate southern music and all things Texas. Honestly, if you didn’t attend, you missed out. Each artist absolutely killed it.
One of the highlights for me personally was witnessing Gary Clark Jr. cover Paul’s Break Em’ Off. Talk about hearing something I didn’t know I needed. Someone please add that to Spotify. By the end of the night, Paul Wall stated, “There was no one way I won that” as he declared Gary the winner of the evening.
They’re both winners to all of us. I felt like I won simply by being one of the few people in attendance to see this Texas greatness in person. Thank you to Red Bull for an unforgettable evening and I cannot wait to see what y’all have planned next time.
