SXSW 2012: Fun. Bring The Party As The Sun Sets In Texas (PHOTOS)

Following killer sets from Dev and Wallpaper on Thursday (Mar. 15), newly minted chart-toppers fun. arrived at the mtvU Woodies just as the sun started to go down over the hazy Austin skyline. As the air began to cool, the stage heated up as the New York indie poppers sang out “We Are Young” to the college-aged crowd that could really relate. Though nominated, the trio didn’t take home the fan-voted Breaking Woodie Award later that night; that honor went to raucous Ohio rapper Machine Gun Kelly. But we don’t think fun. are too beaten up about it now that they’ve got that Hot 100 #1 hit under their belts. Check out the amazing sun-lit photos of fun. performing at SXSW.
