mxdwn Best of SXSW 2013

March 26th, 2013

SXSW 2013 is over. This year, we may have outdone ourselves. For our 2013 coverage we reviewed a whopping 89 shows. That’s right, eight of us ran all around Austin for five days until we were all so tired we could barely stand. In this, our sixth time ranking the best acts we saw at SXSW 2013, we were powerfully reminded how the South by Southwest Music Festival is the best collection of music talent on Earth.

June 15th, 2010

Champions of the modern big-budget video game, Activision took over the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles for a preview event of epic proportions. With little signage and indication of exactly what would take place, throngs of lucky invitees piled into Downtown’s STAPLES Center, greeted by the most unusual phenomenon imaginable at the venue–free food and beer at every single corner the building. That’s right, for whatever reason all the typically overpriced, concert junk food and beverages were entirely on the house. As the crowd tried to make sense of the situation, security kept all gates into the main floor blocked. What was unmistakeably Eminem could be heard on the other side of the curtain.
