It wouldn’t be South by Southwest without a few long lines for shows. Apparently, a lot of people really, really want to see Solange Knowles on Wednesday night.
The “A Seat At the Table” singer is set to perform at YouTube at Coppertank at 10:45 p.m. Our own Deborah Sengupta Stith reports that organizers cleared the venue so that it could be reopened at 9 p.m. That led to a queue of some length an hour before doors opened.

It wasn’t all bad in that line to see Solange, though. According to a tweet by SXSW maven @MissKrisSxSW, the eager “Cranes In the Sky” fans ordered some pizzas.

Desperate times, desperate orders.
