SXSW transitioned from film and tech festival to all-out music marathon Tuesday night. MTV/VH1/CMT checked in with the Live in Austin showcase, and the Fader Fort, Viceland, and many others opened their doors to the newly arrived writers, photographers and music fans out in search of free beer and a story to take home. Hive photographer Chona Kasinger caught our recent favorites Night Beds at Mohawk, and trekked to the Fader Fort for a wild opening night featuring Matt & Kim, Delorean, and Just Blaze performing with Baauer. Check out photos from all these sets below, ad check back in with Hive tomorrow for more galleries and portraits from this year's SXSW.
