All of which makes this the perfect time to upload more shaky iPhonographic videos I captured of some of my favorite performances down there.
And, in case you missed them, you can also go here to view my previously posted clips of Kimbra, Dr. John, Springsteen and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.
Last but not least, don't forget to check an SXSW performance clip from Colorado Springs hip-hop duo the ReMINDers right here.
First up is...
Clock Opera, new UK band in the tradition of early U2, LCD Soundsystem and Peter Gabriel, debut album due out next month
Juanes, headlining performance, also played at Woody Guthrie tribute and was featured in onstage daytime interview conducted by Dave Marsh
Nas, with AZ, during a front-to-back performance of Illmatic, his 1994 debut album
From Springsteen's closing number, during which he was joined onstage by Joe Ely, Alejandro Escovedo, Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello, Garland Jeffries and Arcade Fire
