SXSW 2014: Best Bets For Saturday

Technically, SXSW ends tomorrow, Sunday March 16, but for all practical purposes, today is the grand finale: Hotel checkout is at 11; a new workweek begins on Monday. The only people staying for the Sunday shows are the locals and the bands booked to perform on Sunday. So today is the last hurrah. Unfortunately, today’s weather is not especially conducive to outdoor shows — we’re looking at thunderstorms through the afternoon — so some of these best bets are better than others. But Team Stereogum will still be standing in the rain at Fader Fort to see Julian Casablancas (pictured) and Rick Ross. You?
