Can we take a moment to talk about festival survival guides? You know, those well-meaning blog posts that aim to help you though the glut of shows with advance such as, “Remember to use sunscreen,” “Bring along a phone charger,” and “Never go with a hippy to a second location.” (Sorry, these things bring out the Liz Lemon in me.) Obviously, it’s all good advice. But Austin is not Nam. If you get a blister or can’t answer a text, chances are good that you’ll live to fight again. On the second day of SXSW, I found myself scoffing at such dramatic stances on what’s otherwise an exercise in hanging out with friends and listening to tunes. The whining (as it usually does) would come later. Despite our high hopes and daisy-fresh worldviews, Wednesday night was a mixed bag, with sets from Peace, NO CEREMONY///, Ex Cops, CHVRCHES, and Alt-J.
