    Fader Fort, The Fader 's annual SXSW event, always brings in a few surprise performers at the end of the week, and the rumors always indicate that the secret special guest will be some A-list star. Some years, that's exactly how it turns out - like in 2009, when Kanye West emerged from the depressive fog of his 808s & Heartbreaks era to host a joyous G.O.O.D. Music showcase, or in 2013, when Usher weirdly and wonderfully collaborated with the Afghan Whigs.
