Before the show tonight, I don't think I've ever seen Cut Copy perform a headline show, despite having attended a few festival sets here and there and being a fan since In Ghost Colours. As it was my final weekend in New York and the US in general, I thought it was doubly cool to be finally seeing the Melbourne band for the first time here, in a city which I was visiting for the first time as well.

Perez Hilton's annual SXSW parties are huge drawcards for pop music fans who attend the huge conference each year. Now in its seventh year, the 'One Night in Austin' affair has a penchant for bringing some massive names through amid a week of already huge artists at SXSW and 2014 proved to be no different. The best thing about this event is that, if you're like me and had spent the majority of the day and evening preceding the event running from show to show, there's no specific highlight or feature act to be in attendance for. There are moments of brilliance scattered throughout and even better, some of the names I didn't know beforehand proved to have some great punch behind them.
