D.C. was well-represented this year at South by Southwest, with a ton of local bands present at showcases like DC Does TX and others. Amid the massive festival’s insanity, I caught a sampling of D.C. talent, from These United States and Wild Flag (featuring Mary Timony) to Ted Leo (hey, he lived here for a while) and Bad Brains. Shooting the Brains’ whole set, without injuring myself or my Nikon as a mosh pit raged around me, will long remain an incredible (albeit slightly scary) memory.

Additional photos from these sets, as well as for various other SXSW bands like The Kills, Duran Duran, and Wanda Jackson can be found here over the next couple of days.
