SXSW: Team Cbus

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Musicians aren't the only Columbus crowd headed to SXSW.

Nate Riggs, Elijah R. Young, Sarah J. Storer, Mike Whaling and Eric Leslie are Team Cbus. The multimedia professionals are competing with teams from other cities in the #ChevySXSW Roadtrip Challenge, an "Amazing Race"-style contest that concludes at Austin's SXSW Interactive conference.

They depart Tuesday, March 8, and arrive in Austin on Friday, March 11. On the way they'll creatively complete five challenges, some of them charitable in nature. Chevy will judge the entries and award the winning city prizes.

Send Team Cbus off proper with a bon voyage concert Monday at Woodlands Tavern.
