While you catch up on our favorite discoveries from the SXSW Music Festival, watch late-night lullabies and sets from our showcase, you might want to keep another tab open. Run them jewels fast with El-P and Killer Mike, do the running man with Stromae, and catch a much-needed breeze with Waxahatchee in a series of GIFs by photographer Adam Kissick.

(Note: If you have photosensitive epilepsy, the last three GIFs feature strobe lights.)

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
