Photos: SXSW 2018 – Day 1

Another one in the can – SXSW 2018! Six solid days of music – Monday to Saturday – nonstop each day from noon until 2am. Over 2000 artists from around the world descended in Austin and spread out to over 100 venues – and those are just the official show cases in the evening. During the day, most of those performers plus many hundreds of others, also played at the numerous day parties sponsored by companies in the music industry.

In my ninth consecutive year, I saw 67 performances, took 10K+ photos and did 15 portraits with artists. Rather than one large post for the complete festival, this year’s expanded coverage will have a post for each of the six days. There will also be a seventh post of portraits taken during week. Let’s begin with Day 1 …
