SXSW Day Four: Caitlin Rose, Savages, and Youth Lagoon

March 15th, 2013

Mar 23, 2013

Friday night at SXSW felt uncharacteristically quiet. Where did all the smaller enticing showcases go? Why weren’t we forced to agonize over our schedule? Was everyone really at Green Day and Depeche Mode? (The first which I haven’t appreciated since I was seventeen, the second which I didn’t win tickets to.) Content to keep it to a single showcase, I spent the evening watching Caitlin RoseSavages, and Youth Lagoon.
