Whether you've witnesses SXSW firsthand, or through just about everyone's Instagrams, you probably have a clear sense of the creative pandemonium that is SXSW. As always, we headed down to Austin to check out our favorite artists, witness up-and-coming bands rock out, sit in on a few style and film panels, and throw a few rad parties. On Thursday and Friday, we teamed up with dFm to host a few super-cool musicians and friends at the W Hotel Austin to harness all of this creative energy.

In between watching Tove Styrke, HOLYCHILD, Zella Day, The Prettiots, Bully, Boytoy, Cody Simpson, Overdoz, SAFIA, Coral BonesTei Shi, and Kali Uchis, we kicked it old school with an Original Penguin claw machine, applied hundreds of Flash Tattoos, and tried out upcoming PAX vaporizers. Attendees went home with gift bags stocked by Gibson, GatsbyConnect, SkullCandy, and WeTransfer. Click through the gallery to relive all of the fun.
