SXSW 2007: XLR8R's Cosmic Rodeo

The XLR8R and XLR8R TV crews had their hands full (and no, not just with bottles of Lone Star) at Austin, Texas' South by Southwest festival this year. We shot tons of pics and video, interviewed random folks and indie rock's crown jewels, and, well, found ourselves stuck in the middle of nowhere at countless after-parties. But that wasn't gonna stop us from delivering the goods below.
