SXSW Saturday: 3-hour lines for parties, a surprise guest at The Cult

The final Saturday of South by Southwest saw longer lines at venues as party-goers waited for big-name music acts, free food and surprise guests.


  1. The Roots performed their hits and even some covers at the MOG party at Mohawk. Bob Mould, the former frontman of Husker Du, performed his band Sugar's "Copper Blue."
  2. Across the street at Stubb's, the long lines to get into Rachael Ray's Feedback party are a sight each year, as people wait to get into the party popular for its free food, booze and hear several bands.
  3. The celebrity sightings continue around SXSW, including Bill Murray, who returned again to Austin this year.
  4. SXSW Film wrapped up with the screening of "Big Easy Express," a documentary capturing the train tour with Mumford and Sons, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Old Crow Medicine Show. The bands performed at the end of the screening and then headed out to the LBJ lawn at the University of Texas to perform to a crowd of about 8,000.
  5. At Auditorium Shores, Colombian band Bomba Estereo, who played several shows during SXSW, warmed things up for the headliner, The Cult.
  6.  Actor Matthew McConaughey made a surprise appearance on stage with The Cult, playing the bongos (no surprise there) with the band.
