SXSW Interactive Announces Opening Keynote

She may not be a household name, but Paola Antonelli credentials are bordering on perfect. She’s a guru of design and the interaction between people and things. If that isn’t a good fit for SXSW Interactive then we’re just not sure if anyone is good enough. Read More | Comment »

City’s SXSW Survey Finds Little Worth Noting

The most notable takeaway from Wednesday’s second public meeting by the city’s Austin Center for Events (ACE) staff, which presented results of the citizen feedback survey taking stock “on all events related to” the 2014 SXSW Film, Interactive, and Music Festival, was that four of the six panelists didn’t find any conclusions deemed noteworthy.

Tyler, the Creator

At South by Southwest 2011, for a “Death Match” day party put on by Thrasher Magazine, juvenile punk rappers Odd Future opened their show with such a commotion that a herd of fans who were barred entry broke down the fence barricading the Scoot Inn from Waller Street and overthrew the show.

SXSW Live Shot: Suzanne Vega

When the top hat goes on, the magic starts. Well, nearly. In the seemingly acoustically perfect Central Presbyterian Church, the stylishly chapeau’d Suzanne Vega had the traditional technical problems as she stop-started with brokenhearted “Marlene on the Wall.” Read More | Comment »

SXSW Live Shot: San Fermin

Pale, male, and Yale: three words that when lumped together conjure the epitome of American privilege. And yet, despite his degree in classical composition from that vaunted Ivy League realm, Ellis Ludwig-Leone has managed to compose a deeply American document of youthful existentialism, while also capturing the sheer, messy joy of existence.

SXSW Live Shot: Habibi

Amid the deep-fried sugar punk chaos that was Burgermania III at the Eastside’s Hotel Vegas on Saturday night, Habibi was something of an outlier. Read More | Comment »

SXSW Live Shot: White Denim

With the exception of Willie Nelson, who both hosted a party on his ranch in Luck two days before helping to close out the iTunes Festival at ACL Live at the Moody Theater on Saturday, it’s tough to think of a local band who mixed the comforts of home with the chaos of SXSW quite like White Denim.

SXSW Film Review: 'All American High Revisited'

Oh, the white anklets and crew socks, the feathered and poodle-permed hair, the pre-washed and pastel-everything… You couldn't pay many of us who lived through the 1980s the first time to live through them again. But, somehow that damn decade manages to trigger nostalgia gyrations like so many skanking Molly Ringwalds. Read More | Comment »
