SXSW: Iggy and The Stooges, Ghostface Killah and The Specials

Vans kicked off four days of non-stop music with the curtain drawing on the House of Vans at the Mohawk in Austin this past Wednesday 3/14 with the Vans SXSW Showcase presented by Fat Possum Records. Iggy and the Stooges, Ghostface Killah, The Specials, Japandroids, Middle Class Rut and Sky Ferreira made for a blistering mix of hip hop, ska, punk rock, indie and synth-pop. The day started with Pitchfork’s Show No Mercy metal showcase going full tilt on both the indoor and outdoor stages, while industry heavyweights such as The Stooges, The Specials, Thurston Moore and Sam Speigel made visits to Vans’ gifting suite to pick up some goods. Music fans got a range of acts from indie to metal to both throwback and underground hip hop. Check out the flicks below.
