Photo of the day: SUBS Ups the Intensity at SXSW


This week’s photo theme is China at SXSW 2018: a visual recap of a few bands and artists that represented at the first official China showcase to be held at long-running Austin, TX music industry conference South by Southwest. I was at the event as my band SUBS was one of the featured artists, and this week I’ll share some snaps from the front row.

My band SUBS played second to last, and there was still a good audience despite the fact that it was pushing 1am by the time we went on stage. Vocalist Kang Mao (pictured above) was in fine form, fitting a few solid stage dives into the set. (Photo by Emma Sun.)
