The Alternative Faces of SXSW

SXSW has come to mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people over the years, but one thing remains steady: the music. The music week stretched between March 12th and March 17th and it was a hell of a time–we've got the pictures to prove it. And while Justin Timberlake's performance may have sounded a death knell to those who loved the old South By, there were still a myriad of alternative voices (and faces, and wardrobe decisions) on display.
