The Badgeless Scenes of SXSW:Levi's/Fader Fort, Blue Sky Studio, French Legation Museum and More
Major Lazer with Skerrit Bwoy at Jelly's Carniville
Our resident ninja photog Rebecca Smeyne spent her time at South By Southwest exploring the festival's badgeless margins--the shows anybody with a little creativity and a lot of patience could attend. From the party for Death + Taxes Magazine where No Age and Japandroids played, to the Cinders Gallery installation at OK Mountain to a random show on a random porch, she managed to catch things even the rest of us who were there didn't experience. Her photos from Austin, which aren't quite like anything else we've seen from the festival, are below.
