The sun was shining bright over SXSW 2013 yesterday (March 14), but that didn't stop Airborne Toxic Event from bringing some serious heat to the outdoor stage at Waterloo Records in Austin.

But here, the California crew rocks a bit harder than Bono and co., and after the four-minute mark, they build to a mighty climax.
