Matching the audio-visual standards of pirated Balinese DVDs (and the propensity for people to walk across frame) is this shaky-footage/poor-sound-quality double fisting courtesy of the the various Youtube users floating around highly bloggable Austin music conference SXSW.

Watch these videos with pride, drink them up and hold them close to your heart because it took one whole hour of creative Youtube searching to find them and it’d be nice if the SXSW performances of our Aussie contingent could garner more digital eyeballs than real world punters. Seriously, it’s like 10 dues standing in a broom closet. But a really buzzy broom closet with lots of tattoos and the possibility of nabbing free drinks and/or talking to someone you mildly idolize.
