In Austin, "live music capital of the world," one will find music and a crowd no matter where he or she goes during SXSW: people line every street and bands wanting an extra show occupy sidewalks. Open bar windows let the sound spill out to make damn sure everybody knows there's another gig to be enjoyed.
A little less Arcade Fire and a little more Passion Pit, Ra Ra Riot leaves the cellist behind and travels into synth territory with "Beta Love."
"Beta Love" by Ra Ra Riot somehow blends sky-high crooning, synthed-out strings, popped-out synths, bubbling bass and absolutely party-ready beats. It's an indie dance-pop lover's single come true.
KDHX hosted over 200 in-studio sessions this year, and our volunteer photographers kept up with all the action.
