SXSW '09 Thu Day Parties

Little Boots - Stuck on Repeat video from hours ago via YouTube

Alright, so I pretty much missed most of yesterday since I had to go to San Antonio to get some friends. I did manage to get pack in Austin just in time to zip over to the new Fader Fort just in time for Little Boots. I saw Grizzly Bear there as well as the dudes from No Age. A good time was had by all. So let's focus on today. Obviously tonight is my big break at the Rock the Rabbit party. But there are about 15 parties I want to highlight for y'all and you'll find them after the jump...
