SXSW Music Review: Keith Urban
Stubb’s was just over half full when Keith Urban emerged at 11pm on Friday night, and considerably under that by the end of his 80-minute, 16-song set. Though the country superstar and SXSW keynote speaker gave a genuinely enthusiastic performance, mainstream country has never found its footing at the festival, and with good reason. It’s not very good.

SXSW Music Review: A Tribute to Blaze Foley
SXSW Film outpaced the conference’s corresponding Music and Interactive festivals this year. It’s telling that two of the latter tracks’ biggest names – Neil Young and Elon Musk, respectively – appeared in support of films.

SXSW Panel Recap: From CBGB to the World – A Downtown Diaspora

SXSW Music Review: KUTX – The Breaks
Having bought into the idea that Austin could be a hip-hop city, noncommercial University of Texas frequency KUTX 98.9 took a calculated risk in handpicking Jared “Confucius Jones” Williams and Aaron “Fresh” Knight to host a Saturday night hip-hop show, The Breaks. The station saw it through Friday with an all-local, all-hip-hop SXSW showcase.

Sharing space with Stones Throw at the Empire Control Room on Friday night, the Clash + Vero True Social Presents showcase proved the more eclectic of the two.

SXSW Music Review: Thank You for Sweating
There weren’t any cell phones on the dance floor at Kingdom on Friday night. The absence of that ubiquitous appliance beaming LED light into the club was triumphal. For once, people busied themselves by enjoying the moment, which included dancing to samples of Melle Mel’s “White Lines.”
