SXSW has scored something of a Super Wednesday coup.

The ever-expanding confab announced Wednesday morning that President Barack Obama will join its “keynote conversation” during the event's interactive component on March 11, while First Lady Michelle Obama will give the first keynote address at SXSW Music on March 16.

The organization says the President will be talking about technology as it relates to entrepreneurs and current political issues, while the First Lady will celebrate Women’s History Month with, among other things, a “call to action to support girls’ education.”

You can find more information about all of the above, as well as SXSW conferences in general, at sxsw.com.

Meanwhile, here’s a classic video of a much-younger Barack Obama talking about his love for Earth, Wind & Fire, Jay-Z, and other over office faves:
