Tweets That Pop: SXSW festival goers
Those who made the trek to Austin for the South by Southwest festival indulged in five days of nonstop music from more than 2,000 acts and likely attended one of the many (aggressively branded) parties. Big names (Jay-Z, Springsteen), breakouts and booze kept Twitter popping:

“Been at SXSW for four days and the best music I've heard was a ska cover of Poison's “Nothing But A Good Time” playing at Chipotle.” -- @kylekinane

“Sounds like up and comers Jay-Z and Bruce Springsteen got a nice buzz boost from SXSW” -- @donewaiting

“Excited for #SXSW! See you at the Taco Bell™ RealPlayer™ Blogger™ Underground™ Super Chill Lounge Fort Showcase Party Tent! ☮♥▲ #KONY2012” -- @yacht

“Trying to figure out what's worse at SXSW. Being drunk or being sober.” -- @pbwolf

“Can't figure out how to dress for both Al Gore & Jay-Z?! #sxsw” -- @txrocks75
