SXSW: Photos from Day 2

Legions of green decorated the streets of Austin yesterday as day two of the music portion of SXSW coincided with St. Patrick's Day. After various parties, loft retreats and even a vegan BBQ hosted by Moby during the day, Thursday night's big draw was a free outdoor concert by the Strokes. And in keeping in Texan fashion, the event was large in size, taking over an entire field and culminating in a fireworks display during the group's last song. Here are some photos of yesterday's action.
