AT SXSW: Michael Stipe of R.E.M. (All photos by Perry Julien.)
Music conference vs. music festival.
Badges vs. wristbands vs. free shows.
Official showcases vs. un-official showcases.
Regardless of your opinions, there is something about 1,700 bands getting together for 24 hours of music.
I was able to see and photograph 49 bands over five days. Fucking rock excess.
Below are photos from: REM, Dark Meat, Ocha La Rocha, Elf Power, Dead Confederate, The Whigs, Von Bondies, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Raveonettes, Vampire Weekend, and X.
OCHA LA ROCHA
BLACK MOTH SUPER RAINBOW
Nashville has more dive bars than ATL now that sucks. tbh i think that new…
*Christ, Lord sorry
"Punk" style like this seems like it is the polar opposite of punk. Bradford Cox…
They're kind of starting to look like a joke of themselves. Song's good though.
