Ask any SXSW vet: The long-running SPIN showcase at Stubb’s — which in the past has featured Vampire Weekend, Black Keys and Kings of Leon, among many others — is one of the must-see events of the festival. This year, we lived up to that tradition in fine fashion, with Against Me!, Cloud Nothings, ScHoolboy Q, Warpaint, Future Islands, Temples, the Orwells and Radkey, with a stellar headlining set from Future (who brought out both B.O.B and the legendary Bun B). All of the photos above are stellar, but the most entertaining one might be the shot of ScHoolboy Q ending his set by surfing into — and then leaving through — the crowd. Thanks to the crew at Stubb’s, everyone who performed, and everyone who came — here’s to next year! (SPIN at Stubb’s was sponsored in part by Nokia, Esurance, Crispin Cider, and Tito’s Handmade Vodka.)
