We had one heck of a time covering local Lawrence bands at SXSW this year, but they weren’t the only ones who caught our attention. While down in Austin, the I Heart Local Music crew partied with Dan Deacon, crashed a SPIN magazine party featuring Best Coast and Santigold, and rocked out with Reggie Watts and Hooray for Earth at the Under the Radar showcase. Here are some photos from our adventures at this year’s SXSW music festival.
