SXSW Live Shot: Twista
You were out of luck if attempting to gain entry through a bevy of the burliest security even an hour before Twista’s 1:20am start time. While the former Tung Twista’s set was brief and chaotic, the Chi-Town legend didn’t disappoint nearly as much as the Trinity Hall at Old School’s cranky sound system.
