Now something of a SXSW tradition, we’ve once again teamed up with our friends at the Windish Agency to present the fifth annual Pitchfork/Windish Austin Party.

The party went down yesterday afternoon at Emo‘s (603 Red River St.), and featured 12 bands on both the outdoor stage and the Emo‘s Jr. indoor stage: Neon Indian, Japandroids, Real Estate, Memory Tapes, Surfer Blood, Local Natives, Best Coast, Dâm-Funk, Washed Out, Free Energy, Javelin, Local Natives, Warpaint. Oh yeah, and GWAR showed up.
