In Photos: South by Southwest


sxswfeatureedit 06 06 In Photos: South by Southwest

A picture tells a thousand words, right? They also help capture a thousand bands, and for an event like Austin, TX’s South by Southwest, a camera isn’t an added incentive, it’s a necessity. Last week, several of our photographers hit the bustling streets and furious venues, capturing the talent both young and old. For reference, you should know that a day at SXSW begins at 10 a.m. and doesn’t stop until sometime between the hours of two or six in the morning. Yeah, that’s a lot of footage. So, if you couldn’t make it down to Texas, take a short visual trip below. We’ve even included previous galleries for our CoSigns event and our official SXSW showcase.

CoSigns – The Beauty Bar – Wednesday

Who: Future Unlimited, Princeton, The Henry Clay People, Mikal Cronin, Bleached, Mr. Dream, The Men, Screaming Females, Titus Andronicus, and Cloud Nothings.
