sxsw http://wwno.org en Bajofondo, Live In Concert: SXSW 2013 http://wwno.org/post/bajofondo-live-concert-sxsw-2013 With eight accomplished musicians from Argentina and Uruguay, and a sound rooted in tango traditions, <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/93696530/bajofondo">Bajofondo</a> lays out a visual and aural feast. Led by Oscar and Grammy winner Gustavo Santaolalla, the group mashes up traditional <em>candombe</em> sounds and other forms with electronica to produce a mix that's hypnotic and danceable.<p>With <em>bandoneon</em> and violin joining keyboards, guitars and drums, Bajofondo crafts deep grooves that feel laid-back on its four albums, yet radiate infectious energy on stage.

Nick Cave may have opened his SXSW set in the twilight hours, but if anyone could will the night into being, it's the black-clad Australian star.<p>After opening with "Higgs Boson Blues" — a circuitous dirge from <em>Push the Sky Away,</em> Cave's new album with his co-conspirators in The Bad Seeds — the singer got his wish, having seemed to squelched the light purely on the strength of his own slow-burning, strangely seductive menace.
