CL at SXSW: The Photographs

From the obscure to the iconic - this is one way to describe the influx of more than 2,000 bands that make the exodus each March to Austin, Texas, for the SXSW Music Conference. What started out 28 years ago as a chance for emerging bands to showcase their material has turned into part conference and part mega festival over the last several years. The change in the music industry away from record labels has created an event where sponsors have become as visible as the artists playing there. Yet despite this change no one can deny that for the five days of SXSW there is no better place on the planet to be exposed or overwhelmed by the quantity and variety of live music in one location.
