SXSW Transcends Tragedy With Music

SXSW 2014 will forever be marked by tragedy -- the senseless deaths of two festival goers and 23 injured by a drunk driver now facing the death penalty won't soon be forgotten, nor will Tyler the Creator's arrest for inciting a riot. But the silver lining surrounding that dark cloud was that so much astounding music was still there to be found throughout the 28th annual music festival in Austin, Texas.

SXSW Music: Tragic Deaths Darken Day 2

The SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas always teeters on the brink of chaos. A couple hundred thousand drunken revelers to see more than 2,000 musical acts will do that to a downtown. But in 28 years there's been arrests, protests, and even small riots -- but never a tragedy like this. Around 12:30 a.m. a car fleeing a drunk driving checkpoint rounded a corner, smashed through a barricade and plowed into a crowd, sending bodies flying and killing two festival-goers.
