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.
Sam Smith talked about his love of My Best Friend’s Wedding and Whitney Houston.
Diarrhea Planet had the best facial hair.
Twin Shadow made a good “Hey, girl” face.
’80s synth avatar Gary Numan talked about starting over in his music career and writing “for the love of it.”
Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls GROWLED in a #sxsselfie and talked about collabing with Blondie’s Debbie Harry.
Perfect Pussy won best wardrobe.
The Bots shared some brother love.
Casual Sex wooed us with their Scottish brogue.
And the great Damon Albarn stopped by before going onstage. We tried not to fangirl too hard.
