SXSW Live Shot: Africa/Caribbean Night
Just outside the Palm Door, a steel drum band from Trinidad marched down Sixth Street in the rain Friday night. It proved the perfect prelude to a dual showcase that was “all about the waist,” as Congolese-British comedian/emcee Eddie Kadi put it.

SXSW Live Shot: Broncho
Broncho found its groove on last fall’s sophomore LP, Just Enough Hip To Be Woman, transforming from basement beer pit punk to power pop prowess. Not that they’ve polished the edges too much. On Friday, the Norman, Okla., trio exuded a slacker ethos – and articulation remains a last priority.

SXSW Live Shot: The Skull
Eric Wagner and Ron Holzner are veterans of the rock wars: greying, grizzled, bloodied but unbowed. Former members of seminal Chicago metal act Trouble, the pair keep the fire burning in the Skull, a group formed specifically to stoke those ancient embers.

SXSW Live Shot: The Residents
Paired with a screening of the Residents documentary Theory of Obscurity for SXSW Film, Friday’s show gave the band’s diehards and the curious among South By Southwest attendees more than their fill of the mask-wearing, art-damaged rock legacy.

SXSW Film Review: Best of Enemies
Hard to imagine that time, pre-Fox News and Bill O’Reilly, when facts mattered, on-camera civility reigned, and Dan Ackroyd’s Jane-you-miserable-slut comment was so funny just because it was so unimaginably outré.

SXSW Profile: Leon Bridges
The Internet age moves fast, but the rise of Fort Worth’s Leon Bridges can only be described as meteoric. The young soul singer with impeccable style has released just two songs from an album with a possible June release date, but they garnered more than a million plays on Soundcloud within a week of release.

SXSW Film Review: Danny Says
There’s no precise word in the music biz for what Danny Fields does – or did (as the film concludes its look at his amazing career in 1978). Having great taste is a huge part of what made Fields so successful, but pinpointing his activities with a simple job description is no easy task.
