Stereogum’s Austin Oasis 2017 Yearbook

Stereogum’s Austin Oasis 2017 Yearbook

Congratulations to the SXSW Class Of 2017! For the third year in a row, Stereogum presented a marathon show at Austin’s Hole In The Wall. This year’s event was called Austin Oasis, because it felt like a break from the typical downtown festival chaos and because we thought maybe we could will an Oasis reunion into existence at a dive bar across the street from UT-Austin. That last part didn’t happen, but 26 fantastic bands played and — just like in 2016 and 2015 — we’ve put together a yearbook of sorts, giving all the bands superlatives to take with them into the next chapter of their lives. Check out our portraits and all the rest below.
