There was a time in which I was totally oblivious to how popular a band was. Usually my naivety went along the lines of: “This band is awesome, everyone must love them!” Now I know that's not quite the case and, whenever I can, I try and spread the word of awesome, small time or local bands I’ve fallen in love with.  At last year’s SXSW, favorite bands I’d never heard of included Best Coast and Hunx and His Punx, who have both ...

This past week I was able to catch some of the most stylish South by Southwesters walking to and from the massive amount of shows and parties going on.

Apparently the thing topping their to-do list is 'YELL AT WOMEN ON STREET' followed by the less important, but equally creepy, tasks of: 'hide in bushes & wait' and 'make lots of calls from a blocked number where ...

BUST at SXSW

BY Kristina Uriegas-Reyes in General |

Thursday was one of BUST's awesome SXSW events featuring Harvard, This Time Next Year, Wild Orchard Children, Orbs, Gatsbys American Dream, and Eisley.

Their melodic songs definitely set the mood for the rest of the evening. Everyone seemed to have a great time, including myself.
