SXSW 2016 — Day Three Recap
An unexpected hailstorm halted our late night plans.

Our friends over at SPIN always put on a stellar showcase at Stubb’s, and this year’s event brought acts like Deftones, Dawn Richard, Bleached and more. But the artists we had our eyes on were CHVRCHES and Vince Staples!

The rapper (who reps Long Beach heavy) had an earlier set, which was filled with laid-back Cali-style flows mixed in with sort-of-serious jokes about not getting enough Spotify streams. As for CHVRCHES? The Scottish synth-pop outfit were one of the biggest highlights of the day, as they brought a fiery energy to their set with vibrant tracks like “Empty Threat,” “Gun,” “The Mother We Share” and “Clearest Blue.”
