Brenda passed away on Saturday, September 29 in Austin following a long, heroic battle with cancer. Her passion for music and the people who created it led to a position as Panels Coordinator for SXSW from 1988-1992 – the lean, early years when a comparative handful of people worked insanely long hours putting the event together.
