Dominique Young Unique kicks off SXSW with energetic set of brash electro-rap

There were two other people on stage, but Dominique Young Unique would have stood out in a crowd of hundreds Tuesday night at Spill in Austin, where the Florida electro-rapper performed the first of nine sets planned for SXSW.

She was clearly having a great time. Flanked by a pair of guys laying down clattering beats on sequencers and synthesizers, Young slid back and forth across the stage wearing a giant smile as she dropped a relentless stream of brash lyrics, like a one-woman Yo Majesty, minus the tendency to disrobe on stage.
