With folks still cruising into town, the big shows dominated the first night out in Austin, and we captured video at the night’s biggest showcase, the NME night at Stubb’s. Watch clips of Lily Allen performing (and dissing NME editor Conor McNicholas’ girth), Jamie T singing about “Sheila,” and Illinois loving something very, very much.
