Video Recap: SXSW 2013

SXSW 2013 Volted video recap - Fingers Crossed

This year’s South by Southwest was definitely one for the books. For a week, performances, showcases, and damn tourist traffic took over the city of Austin. And if you missed it, I’m terribly sorry.

Although many big performers were in town, including the Flaming Lips headlining at Auditorium Shores, I focused on seeing smaller groups and bands. Here’s a recap of my SXSW experience.

As South By 2013 fades into a distant, wild, hungover memory, the fun doesn’t stop for Texas. Here’s a list of upcoming music festivals here in Austin and other cities:

Texas Thunder 2013 – Gardendale, TX                           May 17-19

Richardson Wildflower Festival, Richardson, TX            May 17-19
