WEDNESDAY DAYTRIPPING AT SXSW
While we landed in Austin on Tuesday, Wednesday marked the first real day of shows and “festivities” for our crew at SxSW. With a stop at the Pitchfork Day show to see Coachwhips and Perfect Pussy, here’s a look at what else photographer Dylan Johnson saw.
DON’T CALL IT ACADEMIC: AN INTERVIEW WITH HOLLY HERNDON
"Nostalgia’s a huge problem in electronic music. People get really nostalgic for a certain sound or for certain equipment, instead of trying something that might work a little bit better or be more interesting. I’m interested in the computer because it can do things that those machines never even dreamed of doing."

Halloween Contest! Halloween Contest! Halloween Contest!
Even Superchunk knows ‘tis the season - instagram your best metal photo of all time - Halloween costume, hardcore band you had in college, the time you met Jimmy Page - and hashtag #impose and #LiveArnette to win a Slayer Sunglasses + Ski Goggles Prize Pack.
The contest ends at 12pm noon on Friday, Nov. 1, and there’s no cap on how many times you can enter! Get busy, metalheads!
Win Slayer Sunglasses + Ski Goggles this Halloween!
Arnette collabroated with the legendary band to create a capsule collection featuring matte black and blood red artwork for their Witch Doctor sunglasses, Series 3MX and Skylight snow goggles, which will be released in limited supply as part of Arnette’s Uncommon Projects Capsule Collection. And even if you don’t like Slayer (blasphemy!), it’s worth noting the Witch Doctor series feature interchangeable arms that can be used with other models in the line.
So what do you need to do to enter?
Simple, just instagram your best metal photo of all time and hashtag #impose and #LiveArnette. The photo can be from today, yesterday, that time you were in a hardcore band, or when you dressed as Gene Simmons for Halloween. Just make it your most metal moment of all time and our crack staff of judgmental editors will pore through them for the best photo to determine a winner.
The contest runs through Halloween — ending at 12pm noon on Friday, Nov. 1 — and there’s no cap on how many times you can enter, so bust out that flying V and do your weird uncle proud.
