    Our second day in Austin couldn't have gone better. We kicked off the day at The Fader Fort Presented by Converse, had a chat with Surfer Blood at The Belmont, and spent the evening stationed at The Warner Sound Showcase. Click through for some highlights and check back for more coverage next week.
