SXSW 2013 Recap: Day Three

Dave Grohl
YouTube

At SXSW, the more concerts you catch, the more you miss. Trying to recap all the previous day’s happenings in Austin through videos that have been posted on the Internet is an impossible task, as SXSW-goers are usually too busy sleeping off their complimentary Lone Stars to roll out of bed and start uploading all their cellphone footage. But we’re up to the challenge, so we’ve scoured YouTube in search of the brightest moments captured from day three (March 14) of SXSW 2013, and the following handful of selections offers a good summary of what went down Thursday. Enjoy!


Dave Grohl

 
 

Looking more like a librarian than a rock icon, thanks to his thick-rimmed spectacles, SXSW 2013 keynote speaker Dave Grohl turned in an amusing and touching address that summarized his colorful career in music, from his humble punk rock origins to Nirvana, Foo Fighters, the Sound City players and beyond.

 

The Flaming Lips

 
 

Wayne Coyne and his Flaming Lips turned in one of the more memorable performance of the fest at the Warner Sound showcase, where they served up their classic 'Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots' album. Check out their take on 'Do You Realize?' below.

 

Bernhoft

 
 

Up-and-coming Norwegian singer/composer/lyricist/multi-instrumentalist Jarle Bernhoft (known onstage simply as Bernhoft) showed his fantastic vocal range with a cover of the '80s Tears for Fears hit 'Shout.'

 

Foxygen

 
 

“I am empty,” an exhausted Sam France revealed onstage during Foxygen's performance at Austin’s Red 7, an admission that led to some heckling from the crowd -- and eventually his own volatile response.

 

Airborne Toxic Event

 
 

With guitars and violin flailing, Airborne Toxic Event busted out an epic rendition of their biggest hit, 'Sometime Around Midnight,' on the outdoor stage at Waterloo Records in Austin on Wednesday.
