SXSW 2014 Day 1 Recap: SiriusXMU befriends London Grammar, Charli XCX, Bob Mould + more

March 13, 2014

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.

Eagulls seemed ironically calm despite their high-energy onstage reputation.
