Delta Rae shares their excitement for being at SXSW through Vine, Twitter’s 6-second video app. It seems that bands are using Vine just as much as they’re tweeting!
Many, many incredible musicians are at South By Southwest (SXSW) Music Festival in Austin, TX, right now. Bands of all genres, ages and corners of the world.
Sure, there are plenty of big-time performers there (Dave Grohl, Snoop Lion, Paramore), but the artists we’re really interested in are the under-dogs, the emerging bands that DIY’ed their way into gigs and music festivals like SXSW.
This is the day-by-day diary of a few of our favorite bands, as told by the bands themselves via social media! Tweets, Instagram pictures and Vines… head out to our >> Storify page << to see them all in one place.
The bands: Delta Rae (Americana from Durham, NC), Vinyl Thief (rock band from Nashville), Congo Sanchez (drummer of Thievery Corporation and See-I, from DC), and Andy Suzuki and The Method (acoustic pop from NYC).
Vinyl Thief (obviously in the wee hours of the morning): “Hey, hey, HEY! Serious time.”

Vinyl Thief goes bowling the minute they arrive in Austin, as shown by their first Vine of their SXSW trip.

Andy Suzuki and The Method ran into Jared Leto (of 30 Seconds to Mars) in Austin. No big deal.
