SXSW 2014 is finally here! (Well, the music portion is, anyway.) Technicalities aside (love you, Interactive and Film!), the fact remains that #SpringBreakAustin is officially underway, and SiriusXMU is along for the ride.
Stationed at the Fader Fort all week, SiriusXMU‘s Jenny and Julia spent Day 1 interviewing a slew of up-and-coming talent: Charli XCX, Eagulls, Pure Bathing Culture, Gardens & Villa, and more. Oh, and Bob Mould. Like, THE Bob Mould. Yeah, it was a good day. Let’s review the highlights!
Charli XCX gave us dreamy eyes.
No Joy did a killer #SXSSelfie.
Gardens & Villa gave good face.
Eagulls seemed ironically calm despite their high-energy onstage reputation.
The great Bob Mould cuddled with Julia and Jenny!
Little Dragons looked crazy stylish. #Swedes
London Grammar were the NICEST.
Mario Cuomo of The Orwells chatted us up in the SiriusXM booth.
And Pure Bathing Culture looked as gorgeous as their music sounds.
Whew. And that’s just Day 1!
