SXSW: Hilton hosts prestigious party

Famed blogger Perez Hilton made his return to South by Southwest this year with the fourth installment of his musical showcase, “Perez Hilton’s One Night in Austin Party.”

The party was held at the new ACL Live venue at Austin’s new W Hotel. DJ Mia Moretti and Caitlin Moe entertained the audience between sets while Hilton introduced all acts, including Zowie, New Zealand’s Kids of 88 and a rocking set from ’90s star Liz Phair.

“Gossip Girl” star Taylor Momsen and her band Pretty Reckless were also a part of the lineup. Momsen was surprisingly better than expected and had a great angsty rock voice.

The event was catered by Vince Young Steakhouse and was quite the success.
