Seems like it’s taking us longer and longer to recover from Austin’s week of music and mayhem every year. We’re finally ready to share some beautiful photos and videos with you now, though!

Clock Opera opened our After-Hours showcase at the Purevolume House around midnight, and the party would keep going well into the early morning.

Jonquils brought their top brass:
and played a cover of The xx’s “Infinity”.

Jamie Woon‘s soulful crooning continued to set the after-hours mood.

And perhaps no one was more surprised than Mount Kimbie themselves when Shwayze jumped on stage with them for an impromptu collaboration! Check the last video here to see this real-time remix.

Thanks for coming and partying!
