Rolling Stone stayed busy at SXSW this year, tweeting 100 band reviews @RollingStone (catch up on all the reports — and check out video — here), and seeing the biggest shows by Muse, Hole, Stone Temple Pilots and more. We also helped some of the fest’s hottest rockers into exhibits at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum — so Patrick Stump, the xx, Surfer Blood, Nneka, Free Energy and more bands got intimately acquainted with the Texas Revolution, the Alamo, Comanche tipis and more great moments in Texas lore. Take a look at our handiwork in our special Texas Takeover gallery:
