Full SXSW Coverage for Live Concerts and Exclusive Performances
Wandering around Austin's 6th Street to see and discover new bands is the name of the game at SXSW, and that's exactly what our NPR crew down in Texas did as Thursday night became Friday morning. Once again, Bob, Carrie, Robin and Stephen gathered in the wee hours, this time to recap NPR's SXSW showcase featuring Thao, Blind Pilot, BLK JKS, K'Naan, Dirty Projectors and Blitzen Trapper.
Standing in the streets of Austin, they also run down the other bands they heard as the night wore on — a few favorites (Crystal Stilts, Grizzly Bear, Women, Laura Gibson, Akron/Family), some new discoveries (Sgt. Dunbar and the Hobo Banned, Passion Pit, Vijay Kishore), a couple of chance encounters and many, many more.
