For music fans, the South By Southwest Music Conference, an annual Austin gathering that showcases and celebrates all things innovative in and around the world of music, is a prime opportunity for musical discovery and enlightenment. Since 1994, when the conference added a film component, attendees have been able to catch showings and premieres of some of the entertainment industry's finest films, too. Before SXSW kicks off next week, Rolling Stone gives you an inside look at which music-focused films are a must-see at this year's conference, from a psychoanalysis of Cream's infamous drummer to an in-depth look at the past and present legacy of Paul Simon's Graceland.
