SXSW 2016 (Saturday): HINDS, Diet Cig, Formation make up for line-wasting time

The one big drawback of SXSW is that you could potentially wait in a line for three or more hours for a really hyped event, think you’re going to get in, and then get royally effed over and left in the cold. This is what happened to me on my last day of SXSW 2016 […]

SXSW 2016 (Friday): Willie Nelson’s party weathers the storm; CHVRCHES, Deftones rock SPIN showcase

Friday was a wild day for SXSW goers everywhere. The afternoon came and went without issue, but when the evening started rolling in, a nasty storm came along with it.

Watch Grimy TV’s festival mini documentary from SXSW 2015

A couple weeks ago we sent our writer and video correspondent (Mark E. Ortega) to the musical madness that is South By Southwest for a five-day music bender. We wanted to capture the SXSW experience on video so people that have not been, can see what SXSW is all about. Not to mention, what the […]

SXSW Saturday explodes with hip hop: J Cole, Too $hort, G-Eazy & more

If Friday was the busiest day of SXSW for me, Saturday was the most intense. If you would have told me I’d end up seeing 39 performances and almost half of them would be hip hop or rap, I wouldn’t have believed it. But that’s what SXSW is partly about, broadening your horizons. My day […]
