"Anybody read my blog?"

New York rapper Charles Hamilton, who came to SXSW with a lot of love from music blogs (not to mention he's on the cover of The Fader magazine this month), was trying to gauge his fan base at the Back Alley Social last night.

He didn't look too pleased with the results, though, as he counted about 10 hands in the packed house. In fact, Hamilton didn't seem very happy with the crowd in general, stopping the show a few times to ask why everyone was so quiet. The audience wasn't having it, either, and gave him a lukewarm response.

Hamilton did score points for theatrics, at least. He asked one of his bandmates to give him his cell phone onstage. Hamilton boasted that he had a new girlfriend and called her mid-performance -- she didn't pick up.
