Our 30 Favorite Photos from SXSW 2010

his Orchestra gets honorary slot #31 because we like the band so darned much

While the photos on this post are all by David Price, he’s in Vegas this week, so all the text here is simply an …

Editor’s Note: Our photographer, David Price, dealt with inconsistent lighting, security that weren’t all on the same page, a lack of photo pits, and plenty of cameras in his face to take over 10,000 photos at SXSW. And then I went and boiled them all down here to 30 favorites. There’s other photos in individual posts, and we’ll be drawing from other ones as we continue our coverage as well.  Inside, you’ll find several shots of the most photogenic guy at SXSW this year, Pink Eyes of Fucked Up, including one with our managing editor Dakin Hardwick. It’s not the most well-lit shot in the world, and it’s not particularly newsworthy, but we like it. And that’s how I picked these 30 photos. Because we like them.

Nice photos! Wanted to see more Muse and Metric, but that’s just me. I wonder if Steve would consider dumping more/all of his shots online at Flickr or some such?

About 45 seconds into the Muse set, we were told “no photos,” and we’ll have lots of Metric photos later today, from their set last night in Oakland.

I’ve always wondered why bands ban amateur photography at their concerts. It’s not like I was in the market for a $30 tour poster, and they lose the sale because of some grainy photo I got off the internet.

…point and shoot cameras were cool to shoot with at the Muse show, god knows every one had them out. It was DSLR (professional) photos they didn’t want. I was told that it was at the bands request because the band found it to be “distracting.”

Sorry, but if you’re a HUGE band like Muse you should be able to tune out the photographers at this point.
