Who Is Sophie?!
While the tragedy of Wednesday’s car crash loomed large over this year’s SXSW, the festival managed to carry on and was mostly business-as-usual afterward. SPIN’s staff powered through and saw too many shows to count, ate an absurd amount of local food-truck food, and took a ton photos along the way. Here’s the best of what we saw, including our favorite live shows, a band getting tattooed, Riff Raff’s ridiculous merch, and a run-in with Migos at the Chevron.
