Whether you were down in Austin last week for the musical shit-storm known as SXSW or merely living vicariously through our online coverage, you'll still want to gaze upon the awesome photos in our SXSW galleries.

The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
