(Drawing probably a larger crowd than anyone expected, Thievery Corporation fit in perfectly with the outdoor festival vibe. Mixing DJs, MCs, and more, it was a worldbeat/trip-hop love-in.)

(Late in the afternoon, the Austin Chronicle hosted a cocktail party near the festival, at the American Legion Hall. It was a really great detour from the day’s activities. Here’s me and Chronicle editor/SXSW co-founder Louis Black. Photo by Beth Sepko.)
