Austin 💛 you are my home away from home, so I need to take your lead and not move forward with my #RRFeedback Festival this year, which has run alongside @sxsw for the last 12 years. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH and I will still be there to 💥SUPPORT LOCAL AUSTIN BUSINESSES💥 A lot of people depend on the crowds SXSW draws, so TAG your favorite Austin-based businesses below —  tell everyone all the great places to shop, dine, stay and visit. I am already working with @stubbsaustin to make sure we're back next year. THANK YOU 🙌🏻 to the enormously talented acts who were set to rock our stage. Let’s give ‘em a great show real soon, guys 🙏🏻 @50cent @thestruts @hamiltonleithauser @megmyers @whitepanda @houndmouth @nogaerez @thecringe @bob_schneider_music @jjwildechild @chaseengelandthenightshift @kennyhoopla @emilywolfemusic Love, Rach . . . 📷 @austinwoman
