Apple’s Bringing iTunes Festival (And Coldplay) To SXSW

In recent years, it wouldn't be SXSW without corporations bringing giant stars to SXSW and generally undermining what dorks like us thought was the point of the entire event. Case in point: Apple's iTunes Festival, which has been coming to London's Roundhouse for the past seven years, will take over Austin's Moody Theater (where PBS'… More »

$20 In My Pocket: A Cheap SXSW Diary

Ostensibly, attending Austin's logo-infused music (and movie, and tech) industry sprawl South By Southwest is expensive. Count on inflated airfare to Austin, $200 a night for a downtown hotel room and hundreds of dollars for food and drinks — oh, and $625 for a badge, assuming you buy it early before the cost balloons to… More »

SXSW 2013: Stereogum Range Life, Featuring Youth Lagoon, METZ, Sky Ferreira, Hundred Waters, Bleeding Rainbow, Lakutis

For an afternoon, Stereogum got the keys to the Hype Hotel, bringing at all-over-the-place lineup of performers to the cavernous space. Bleeding Rainbow opened things up early on, admirably wailing their way through fuzzily direct garage-pop and hitting big, harmonious notes while many of us were still wiping sleep from our eyes. Hundred Waters' electronic,… More »

DIIV: “Fuck SXSW”

Brooklyn dream-poppers DIIV are among the many, many buzzed-about bands playing about 52 shows apiece in Austin this week for SXSW. And they're probably not the only ones who aren't happy about this experience. They are, however, probably the most prominent band to come out publicly this year and say how much they hate it,… More »

Watch Yeah Yeah Yeahs Play Four Mosquito Songs At SXSW

Last night, after sets from Nick Cave and Café Tacvba, Yeah Yeah Yeahs played to a rapt audience at Stubb's outdoor stage for NPR's SXSW showcase.

SXSW 2013 Tuesday: Japandroids, Divine Fits, Marnie Stern

The 'Gum crew got into Austin last night and made the most of SXSW Music's slow ramp-up into full on noise-overwhelming-the-signal mode. The options were limited, but with deep lineups: Viceland and Pitchfork's show at the Mohawk were the primary dueling points. We caught some stuff at each, and had photographers there and also at… More »

Deconstructing: SXSW Through The Eyes Of An Austinite

So you're in a band. Let's say there's three of you: gives you a good fullness-of-sound to van-space ratio. Who else has to be in your camp? A producer, yeah. An engineer, totally.

Prince, Justin Timberlake Rumored For SXSW

Every year, a whole lot of very, very famous people come to Austin for SXSW, mixing uneasily with the glut of unsigned bands and performing at vast, fun clusterfuck shows that usually require multiple hoop-jumps to get into.
