Regular attendees know that, like in Vegas, what happens at South By Southwest is supposed to stay at South By Southwest. Nonetheless, we sent Pete Maiden down to Austin, Texas, for this year's festival with filmmaker Alexis Boling and contributing editor Jenny Eliscu and asked him to report back to us with all the grisly details about what he had seen — from local weirdos offering free hugs amid the throngs of concertgoers on Sixth Street to can't miss footage from emerging artists the Pipettes and A Fine Frenzy. Pete also crashed great performances by Albert Hammond Jr., Pete Townshend, The Good, the Bad and the Queen, Kings of Leon and caught unforgettable late night sets from rock & roll royalty including the Stooges and Perry Farrell's band, Satellite Party.
See it all — including exclusive interviews with Iggy Pop, the Buzzcocks, Perry and Nuno Bettencourt — right now!
