Half of WCP’s exploratory South by Southwest task force landed in Austin late yesterday lacking sufficient lead time to swarm into downtown madness and catch the Foo Fighters

The Grohlercoasters reportedly turned out at Stubb’s to conclude the most star-studded pre-Music Conference week of shows South by Southwest has seen to date. Other musical pre-gaming included TV on the Radio, Sleigh Bells, and Flying Lotus. Actually that was all one party.

The official shit begins today, and the table is set for a conference full of marquee names like Kanye West, The Strokes, and James Blake. More importantly, WCP is ready to keep tabs on DMV delegates making moves.
