CPR's OpenAir hosts Jessi Whitten and Scott Carney spent last week in Austin, Texas, for the South By Southwest music festival. They attended dozens of concerts throughout the five-day event.

Their favorite shows included those from established artists Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Andrew W.K. and ESG, along with new discoveries like Australian singer-songwriter Stella Donnelly, saxophone-driven punk rockers French Vanilla and Japanese pop-rock quartet CHAI.

They also captured some unique sights from the festival, including memorable band outfits, music-themed cocktails and a very cool cassette vending machine.
