Dnak 87 (March 2016)

SXSW 2016 was another incredible week of live music spanning across the heart of Austin. I’m always blown away by how different it is from any other music festival, providing both intimate moments with undiscovered artists and incredible performances by emerging acts. I managed to see 55 shows over 5 days and nights, and I’ve packed this playlist almost exclusively with artists that performed in Austin that week. Some of the more spectacular performances I saw were from Bloc Party, Miike Snow, Iggy Pop, Jamie XX, and Lucius. But I also loved raw performances from Car Seat Headrest, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, and Mitski, and the smooth electro sounds from Baio, Polica, and HAELOS. I’ve included a few snaps from the shows I saw below.
