SXSW Live Shot: Swervedriver/Church
Lo, down came the angels from guitar heaven, to bestow upon the mortals the gift of six strings, a plethora of pedals, and loud amplification. And it was oh-so-good.

SXSW Live Shot: Mick Jenkins
The late Biggie Smalls (R.I.P.) once said, “If you don’t know, now you know!” If you were at Hype Hotel at 9:10pm Saturday, now you know. A nuanced, even subversive approach to inner city issues, Mick Jenkins’ The Water(s) proved a top 2014 mixtape. Live, a DJ, drummer, and backing vocalist aided the Southside Chicago MC in reducing the stage to ashes.

SXSW Live Shot: Lindi Ortega
Toronto-born, but currently based in Nashville, Lindi Ortega began her set at the Continental Club Saturday night quietly, just her voice and an acoustic guitar. Then, like a rocket ship, she burst into country-rock that didn’t let up for 40 minutes.

SXSW Live Shot: Cikatri$
Pity the poor keytar, an instrument that will forever be associated with badly permed guys wearing blue duster jackets. It’s physically impossible to look like a badass while playing a keytar. Unless you’re Aurélie Ferr, of course.

SXSW Q&A: The Church
During its Eighties heyday, the Church’s hit with “Under the Milky Way.” Since then, the Australian institution endured creative entropy, poverty, and internal tension leading to the departure of co-founding guitarist Marty Willson-Piper.

SXSW Q&A: Best Coast
“I’m well aware that Best Coast won’t last forever,” says the L.A. duo’s singer/songwriter Bethany Cosentino. “I hope it lasts as long as it can, but I’m realistic. I doubt I’m going to be doing Best Coast when I’m 50. I mean, maybe, but I’m probably going to be doing something else.” Saturday night she showcases her popular pop band at Uproxx House, 11:30pm.

SXSW Live Shot: Kurupt, E-40
Hip-hop took over as the dominant voice at SXSW this year. Vine stars like Dej Loaf join the adorable Rae Sremmurd and previous maestros Chance the Rapper and Smoke DZA. Despite a youth movement, the Festival can still give the old guys some love, especially when you’re talking E-40 and Kurupt.
