Stereogum’s SXSW 2012 Photo Diary

Generally, Wednesday is when the music things get going in Austin, and Tuesday is the changeover between the SXSW festival’s Interactive portion, and the full-force band fare. And yet there were bands a plenty last night. “Tuesday is the new Wednesday,” is something we heard someone say. Tragically, that person was taken out to an alley shortly thereafter and beaten senselessly. RIP, guy! We had our fleet of photographers — Pooneh Ghana, Linda Flores, and Trent Maxwell amongst them — taking in sets, and we hit some ourselves. In the gallery above you’ll find photos, with the accompanying reviews (where applicable) listed as captions. Tuesday’s pics include Santigold, POND, Schoolboy Q, Light Asylum, Don Trip, Daniel Johnston, and more. Please enjoy!

UPDATE: Wednesday’s additions to the gallery include Danny Brown, Friends, Cloud Nothings, Trash Talk, Amen Dunes, Wavves, and many more.

UPDATE: Thursday’s additions to the gallery include Girls, Lil Wayne, Black Hippy, Zola Jesus, Big K.R.I.T., SBTRKT, War On Drugs and many more.

UPDATE: Friday’s additions to the gallery include Best Coast, Skrillex, Free Energy, Spank Rock, The-Dream and many more.
