Tegan & Sara @ The Main, 3/12/2013
Tegan and Sara

SXSW's music portion kicked off Tuesday (3/12) night in Austin and while there weren't that many shows, the bills were all pretty stacked. Tegan & Sara headlined the IHeartRadio showcase at The Main and BV photographer Amanda Hatfield caught their set right before heading back to the VICELAND for Divine Fits. The Main -- the old Emo's space -- is a small room for Tegan & Sara these days and they told the crowd it was nice to be back in the space where they played once 10 years ago, a show that didn't go so well. See what happens when you keep at it?

The Main is also the location of all BrooklynVegan's free day parties during SXSW. (That and the adjacent The Jr., formerly Emo's Jr.) If you're in town, do stop by. Robyn Hitchcock headlines today's party at 5:15 PM CDT.
