South By Southwest's music festival, held in Austin since 1987, strings together a medley of shows at a bunch of different venues over the course of six days. The hundreds of tried-and-true as well as up-and-coming artists taking part in SXSW draw crowds numbering more than 10,000.

Here are a few of the headliners who hit center stage last Wednesday.

With three albums now under its belt, Seattle-based indie-rock band The Long Winters—whose latest album with songs entitled "Teaspoon," "Clouds," "Honest" and "Rich Wife" is "addictive listening" according to Spin magazine, headlined at The Independent on Saturday with West Indian Girl as the opener.

Texan natives Adam Behrens and Thomas Turner are Ghostland Observatory, which turned out two albums in less than a year on Turner's Trashy Moped label. According to Seattle Weekly (Aug. 9, 2006), "The albums are manna for the funk-starved indie public still anticipating the Rapture's sophomore disc, and are novel enough to catch the fawning affections of KEXP-FM (90.3) like a Clap Your Hands Say Yeah B-side." The duo were at Mezzanine last Saturday for Noise Pop.
