dancing AND architecture: SXSW 2016 in Austin, Texas

We wandered the town for three days during SXSW 2016 and saw 50 bands. 50 bands! Our days started about 7am at the KUTX shows and then, for the most part, we wandered the town for random bands to hear (only September Girls and Peaches were on our "must see" list). We ended each day with a couple hotel lobby shows before returning home about 8pm to shower, sleep, and start it all over again the next morning. Yes, we were tired, but this is like treasure hunting where gems are around every corner. The jewels we found this year include Saint Sister, jungles!!!, Sisters, Riothorse Royale, birdcloud, and Tacocat.
