Our team is wrapping up its coverage of SXSW's opening night, including a review of R.E.M.'s somewhat bewildering set at Stubb's, a stop at the Austin Music Hall for Okkervil River's onstage hookup with Roky Erickson, and some dancefloor revolution at La Zona Rosa with Simian Mobile Disco and Yeasayer. Here's a little taste of R.E.M. to whet your SXSW whistle.

(Apologies for the audio quality -- that's what happens when the editor has to shoot video with a brand new/strange camera.)
