Our official Gorilla vs. Bear 2016 SXSW showcase at Mazda + Hype Machine's Hype Hotel offered a glimpse into the future of pop music on a beautiful Thursday night in east Austin, from Negative Gemini's frenetic, club-ready experimental electronic pop that began the evening (I heard at least a few people compare her vibe to an early Grimes set circa 2011) to headliner Charli XCX's first-ever, next-level collaborative set with SOPHIE, which Charli proclaimed "maybe my most favourite set I have EVER played"...

TREASURE ISLAND 2015

Nestled between San Francisco and the notorious Alcatraz lives Treasure Island. A bit haunted with history in its own right, for the past eight years it's become home to the Treasure Island Music Festival. Steeped in a fog that continually rolls throughout the day, a sea salt whispered haze illuminated the thousands crowding the tiny space. And though the San Francisco music scene has arguably transformed since the festival's inception, what continues to thrive is the spirit that inspires all who come to make art in the city by the bay. Intimate, curated and sincere. — Claire McKinzie

polaroids: FYF Fest 2015

DJDS

The annual Los Angeles-based FYF Fest was humble in size, sweet and yet progressively cool -- like Coachella's little sister that borrowed its clothes. We got to spend the day hopping to shows, eating colored popsicles, and thanking the universe we'd worn proper shoes. All the while getting to hang with the bands that make the heat worth it. Between finding abandoned kitchen sinks with Toro y Moi or snapping shots next to Morrissey's "Vegan" crew vans with Neon Indian — Fuck Yeah Fest didn't disappoint. // photos + words by Claire McKinzie

Check out more of Claire's shots + recap from FYF — including Lower Dens, HEALTH, Mac Demarco, DJ Dodger Stadium, Ed Droste oF Grizzly Bear, and more — after the jump…
