SXSW Live Shot: Victim Mentality
We can thank South Korea for many things: bimbibap, director Park Chan-wook, Psy, and the 38th parallel among them. Now let us raise a glass of soju and toast our good fortune at discovering Seoul-based Victim Mentality. Friday brought the second half of SXSW’s Korea night, but it might as well have been 1990 at the Starwood on the Sunset Strip.

SXSW Live Shot: Japan Nite
Happy 20th anniversary, Japan Nite. You may no longer be the cool kid on SXSW’s pan-Asiatic block since that title likely goes to Thursday night’s Korean celebration. Your crowd skews a little older, and the sweatbox ambiance owed more to the unseasonal downpour boiling off than a super-crazy crowd.

SXSW Live Shot: Joey Bada$$
Past both an annoying drizzle and the inept patron handling at the entrance of the historic Scoot Inn, you were in for a dope rundown. The Mass Appeal-sponsored, Nas-hosted Live at the BBQ showcase boasted a strong lineup, including Fashawn and Prhyme, Royce the 5’9”’s collaboration with DJ Premier.

SXSW Live Shot: Stones Throw Records
A year removed from premiering documentary Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton: This Is Stones Throw Records at SXSW Film, the independent left coast label was back again cultivating a cohesive evening about boogie. While last year’s showcase celebrated a love for all things played at 45rpm, the 2015 edition was dominated by bizarro funk and R&B.

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 Keynote: Snoop Dogg
The grumbling began as soon as the keynote announcement was made. The old guard wanted Dylan. Instead, on Friday morning, they got the Doggfather.
