We had another great time at SXSW this year and thanks to our gracious hosts Hype Machine and Feed the Beat, we have some rad videos and photos to share from that special day back in March. Hype Hotel had another amazing venue this year packed full of cool people, cold beverages, crunchy tacos, insane lights and, of course, ridiculously great bands. MEGABLAAG got to be part of the action this year and we had a blast.

Check out “Spinning Signs” by Painted Palms and “Blood Bank” from Australia’s Seekae, two impressive acts who were part of our amazing line up. The day also included top notch sets from Future Islands, Dum Dum Girls, TRUST and Chet Faker, plus DJ sets by Magic Touch and Yalls. Videos and photos below, plus lots more content from that week on the Hype Hotel page!

Having recently released sophomore album “Anxiety” on little-known indie Software Recording Co., Autre Ne Veut is primed to be one of acts here that could walk away from Austin with a larger deal. Former Warner executive Lyor Cohen was spotted in the crowd, and this is music that could fit in comfortably well with the experimental renaissance that mainstream R&B is experiencing (see Frank Ocean, Miguel, The Weeknd).

LA Times - SXSW 2013: A night of discoveries as the headliners arrive

Ever since the very first one two years ago, Megablaag has always been a festival highlight for me. It’s an oddly refreshing experience to get the chance to meet people you’ve only interacted with online, sort of like the best blind date ever. You might think that a group of people who spend their (largely unpaid) free time writing about music on the internet would be a bunch of nerds, but I have to say that music bloggers know how to party harder than most people I know. The open bar didn’t hurt of course. I ran into DC band GEMS at the showcase – what a small world – while hearing sets from Jerome LOL (<3) and Autre Ne Veut (still don’t get those guys).

Megablaag - SXSW 2012

We didn’t think Megablaag could get any wilder than it was last year at SXSW, but a batch of vodka soaked gummy bears and a killer set from Hooray For Earth proved us wrong. Thanks to all you crazy blogger kids who came out and made this an amazing evening!

To see a full set of photos from Megablaag head on over here.
