SXSW Saturday in Pictures: Rachael Ray and Perez bring the parties & Prince’s 3 hour performance

The beauty of SXSW’s ability to put virtual unknowns next to some of the most iconic musicians of all time really was established on Saturday: the final day of the music festival. It was on this day that I adventured to the Rachael Ray party for some good food and to hear the chef’s favorite acts. I also made my way to the Perez Hilton Party for a lot of dance acts, many of which have barely been mentioned yet on blogs but are sure to be snowballing in buzz soon. Then I ended out my evening with one of the most exclusive and memorable shows of my lifetime: an intimate performance by Prince with A Tribe Called Quest. SXSW, I bow to your awesomeness.

Friday was my day in line. Ugh. With bigger weekend crowds and requirements to pick up wristbands and passes for some of the weekend’s more exclusive events, I spent far more time burning in the Austin sun in a non-moving line than I cared for. Fortunately, some great performances from bands such as Fall Out Boy, Vampire, Weekend, Chvrches and more made up for all the line waiting.

MTV had built a pair of stages in the middle of an empty grass lot to host the Woodies. Performances alternated back and forth between these stages — one of which tended to feature rising rap and hip hop acts and the main stage which featured indie rock and other big buzz acts such as Macklemore, Tegan & Sara and Alt-J.
