Repost This

Day three of SXSW has come and gone, and we’re nowhere near tired of gorging on breakfast tacos, catching showcase after showcase, and hanging at the Fader Fort.

If you’ve been listening to SiriusXMU this week, then you’ll already know that SXM’s indie station has been broadcasting live music from the Fader Fort, interviewing a slew of reputable bands, and, just yesterday, freaking out over Damon Albarn.

Oh yeah, Damon Albarn hung out with us for a bit before going onstage. No biggie.

Here are some more highlights from Day Three!

Jagwar Ma hung out with us at Willie’s Studio.
