This week's edition of Throwback Thursday isn't our normal dollop of under-appreciated 80s awesomeness. As the music vignette of SXSW quickly encroaches, we're instead looking back at our favorite moments spent in Austin from the past few years. Since 2007, we've made the annual pre-spring trek down to Austin, Texas to capture some of the finest acts as they pass through the Lone Star State.
The Ugly Organ is perhaps the label's finest album, and we got to see Tim Kasher and the band perform "Art Is Hard" five years after its release. Oh, and they closed with the Domestica classic "The Martyr".
The Icelandic seven-piece put on a stellar performance, but it was overshadowed by the worst interview of all time. Rumor has it, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was hanging out during this show, and if you didn't know, he's that famous actor kid from Angels In the Outfield, so uh yeah, it was a pretty good showcase.
