SXSW Music 2019: Tuesday

It’s that time of the year again. The music industry has descended upon Austin for the world-renowned celebration of new music at the South by Southwest Festival. Bands are running through the streets with gear and playing an impossible number of sets in hopes of catching the eyes and ears of as many people as they can.

Once again, Jeanette D. Moses is out there taking it all in for us. From the looks of things, the first full day of SXSW music set the bar high with high flyin’ rockin’ from locals Sweet Spirit, an uplifting set from our favorite tendercore pioneers Illuminati Hotties, NY-style badassery from Sharkmuffin and an appearance from the newly-signed Arrowhawk Records artist Shepherds. Scroll on for photos and check back here throughout the week for our daily coverage of the festival.
