SXSW Comedy: Doug Loves Movies
During his second show at this year’s Fest, comedian Doug Benson said the Downtown government buildings made a “great backdrop for all the anti-government movies they’re showing” at SXSW. Just as fitting: his 4:20 curtain call three blocks from the Texas State Capitol.

SXSW Live Shot: Sick of It All
Must have felt like old times for the Koller brothers. After a brawl shut down the Gypsy Lounge before Skepta’s Thursday headline set, by Saturday the East Sixth venue had five Travis County Sheriff cars parked out front, and constables patrolling inside. Just like the good old/bad old post-Reagan days that forged Sick of It All.

SXSW Live Shot: Scott Weiland & Wildabouts
As former Stone Temple Pilots/Velvet Revolver singer Scott Weiland materialized before arcing intellibeams, dry ice enshrouding Parish Saturday night, it became obvious this most notorious of Bowiephiles has entered his Thin White Duke phase, albeit in muted shades of gray.

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. A lifetime achievement award from the Australian Recording Industry Association re-lit the furnace.
