SXSW Music Live: The Sandinistas
“Hi, we’re the Sandinistas,” grinned singer/guitarist Dan Hagerty at the 20 people gathered before the punk-pop trio two songs into their SXSW showcase at Javelina on Friday night. “We’re from South Wales in the UK. If you don’t know where that is,” he added, tongue firmly in cheek, “that’s where Tom Jones is from.”

SXSW Music Live: Prince Tribute
If, like most of us, you didn’t make it into Prince’s marathon set at La Zona Rosa during SXSW 2013 – and you weren’t snacking inside IHOP when he popped in for a late-night breakfast – Friday night at Auditorium Shores may be the closest many of us will ever come to seeing the late Minneapolis legend perform live.

SXSW Music Live: Big Star’s Third & Friends

SXSW Music Live: Richard Barone Presents Greenwich Village in the Sixties
