Between Ryan, Leia and I, we probbaly saw Fleet Foxes and No Age about 100 (good) times that week, so Ryan left before they (and Blitzen Trapper) went on and didn't get any photos of them (from this show).

I saw Handsome Furs at SXSW. They did a wonderful job. I loved how Dan and Alexei interacted and moved. Thanks for providing photos. I'll have to check out these others bands that performed. Too bad I'll be missing them at Bowery Ballroom. I'm seeing Modern Life is War's final NYC show that night.
