We're excited not just because we lurve the Vampire Diaries star and multitalented singer/dancer/songwriter, but also because she is going to be debuting publicly some new songs she's been recording for her debut album!
We've been fortunate enough to hear some of the tunes, and they're very different from old Kat Graham. The new songs are a little less dance and gay and more rhythmic and edgy!
We'll always have a soft spot for her song that first made us fall in love with her, though. Check out the now "vintage" Sassy (above)!
Our party is starting early and going till late! Kat Graham joins a very impressive lineup that also includes previously announced acts B.o.B., Timbaland, The Ting Tings, Dev, Ed Sheeran, Miguel, Kreayshawn, Cher Lloyd, Kimbra, Dragonette and Cris Cab.
This year, our big bash is an official SXSW event. HOWEVER, since our party is also a benefit this year, for the first time, the only way to GUARANTEE admission is to BUY A TICKET!
Shane Redway -- a Canadian rapper and close friend of Drake's -- was killed early Saturday morning in a car crash. He was just 26 years old.
Redway and two others were killed when their car lost control, struck a guardrail and burst into flames. The crash occurred around 4am outside Pearson International Airport in Toronto. It's unclear who was behind the wheel. Police are investigating the crash.
Drake took to Instagram to remember Redway, posting two different tributes.
