SPIN's Best SXSW 2014 Portraits

  • Photo by: Krista Schlueter

SPIN's photo team spent SXSW 2014 shooting a seemingly endless loop of live shows, but we also managed to track down many of this year's performers backstage. Like Earl Sweatshirt, who turned up to our House of Vans day party unexpectedly, Jack Antonoff, who debuted his new band Bleachers here in Austin, and singer Ian Isiah, who showed us his damn tongue. Here are SPIN's finest portraits from the five days, taken during the festival’s calmer moments.
