Glass Animals at Haven

Day 1 of SXSW kicked off with full force, with the streets of downtown Austin jam-packed with industry and music fans from near and far trying to catch a glimpse of the action. Of all the artists we caught, Chela, Meg Myers, Basecamp, Magic Man, Glass Animals, and Jetta all stood out with outstanding sets, while a quick walk-by of Ryan Hemsworth at Pandora House and The Orwells at Fader Fort returned sounds so phenomenal, even from afar, that we’re convinced that everyone is on top of their game this week.
