Kim Petras: the best pop star at SXSW you’re currently sleeping on
 Kim Petras is a human pop hook. Everything about the German singer gets your attention: Her diamond-studded choker and her
            giant hoop earrings give the sense of a Harmony Korine character brought to life. She speaks fluent Britney Spears with a
            Jewel accent, though her pop dialect can be distinctly traced to Charli...

With a teen idol smile and some tongue, Porches thaws out at SXSW
 No, that wasn’t Rider Strong, aka Shawn Hunter of “Boy Meets World” fame. Yes, he was wearing a baggy leather jacket and rocked

SXSW 2018: Shamir is so over straight boys and bad friends

            things he seems

SXSW artist to watch: Nnamdi Ogbonnaya
 When we talk about Nnamdi Ogbonnaya one day, I hope that we get to say “I saw him in a tiny room at South by Southwest one

Gemma Ray played her guitar with a knife at SXSW. That sums it up, yeah?
 Let’s call it desperado pop: Music you play with a knife stuck to the front of your guitar. One second you’re in an Episcopal church in downtown Austin with Gemma Ray, and the next you’re glaring suspiciously at the
            next booth over in a last-chance diner. Or, maybe you’re on the bone-dry highway somewhere...

We stayed in bed all night, on stage, for SXSW’s 8-hour concert
 I slept with a lot of people Monday night. Every year, I moan about how I stay out all night during South by Southwest, covering shows that end at 2 a.m. and writing
            reviews until 4 a.m. But as it turns out, I have been a dirty, rotten liar these past few years. The

Webb Report: Looking into the secret origins of queso
 “Snap.” It’s the worst sound a Texan can hear. The “snap” is the sharpest note in a bittersweet state song, and it hits the ear when your tortilla chip breaks off in a bowl of the (un)official state dip, queso. That crisply dispatched disappointment is exclusive to a proper batch of the stuff, made from properly...
