Factor by which this year's SXSW was better than last year's: 500
The final day of SXSW can often feel dizzying â€“ a mad rush to try to get in all the bands you may have missed before the festival finally comes to an end. Accordingly, the bands that left the biggest impression on Saturday were the ones that seemed to match its frenzied pace.
