South By South Art: Posters, Murals, and Fashion From SXSW

Sensory overload. If you're standing anywhere near downtown Austin, Texas during the South By Southwest music festival, that's what you're bound to experience.

During SXSW, Austin becomes the center of the music universe where there bands seem to outnumber attendees, fashion is elaborate, upfront, and in your face, and concert posters are everywhere covering just about everything.

New Times set about recording some of this for those of you stuck in Phoenix during this year's SXSW. Check out all the eye candy in our "South By South Art" slideshow.
