Late Night Dispatches And Photos From SXSW 2011: Wednesday

Raphael Saadiq performs at Stubb's for SXSW.

At one in the morning, with one day of South By Southwest under their belts — including the big Stubb's showcase — Bob Boilen, Robin Hilton, Ann Powers and Stephen Thompson huddle up to break down the days events before delirium finally settles in. In addition to talking about the Stubb's show, which featured live performances from Yuck, James Blake, Smith Westerns and Raphael Saadiq, the group shares its thoughts on some of the other artists that they squeezed into their busy schedules.

Some highlights include performances by the Lousiana-born quintet Givers, the big band Typhoon and Jeremy Messersmith, a singer-songwriter that incorporated a string quartet into his live show. You can listen to the gang talk about what they liked, loved and wished they'd seen more of at the top of the page.
