Kendrick Lamar
When I wasn't watching Christian rappers and counting seapunks during South by Southwest last week, I took time to film some of the bands, musicians, and street dwellers who populated Austin. I wrote about most of the acts I filmed here on the Bleader, but I still wanted to capture some of the things I stumbled upon—like, say, Little Ruckus's spastic and jubilant one-man party at an unofficial showcase called SXSWendy's.

I took some short clips from the week's performances and compiled it into a wrap-up of my experience from the fest. The video doesn't adhere to the schedule I had set for myself—for example, I saw Illinois power-pop act Shoes before Compton rap king Kendrick Lamar last Friday, but footage of Lamar precedes Shoes. I won't spoil the rest for you though; check it out after the jump and be sure to check out all the Reader's coverage of this year's SXSW.
