SXSW Saturday was a slow descent into Hell GWAR. As LAist's Molly Bergen probably mentioned, the weather dropped about 30 degrees from the night prior, startling the hung-over 90% of us that were completely unprepared clothing-wise. (Not like I own a truly warm coat, anyhow).

While this might have shaped the musical choices for some (the Twitterverse was full of the indoor show lineup times), we decided to bundle up as many layers as we could and head down Congress to catch LA-based singer/songwriter Johnny Rossa do a low-key set at the incredibly cool (and very warm) Luther’s. Foregoing breakfast and lunch, we high-tailed it back to FYF’s MWTX event, where we caught up with GWAR preparing to do a meet-and-greet at next door’s Levi’s/Fader Fort. Tagging along for the ride (Thanks Phil!), we found the moment to be pure SXSW, with Oderus Urungus and crew being denied access because they didn’t have the right wristband. Seriously, people. It’s all about the wristband.
