Music photographer and friend of Gawker Ryan Muir was one of thousands of honorary Austinites last month at SXSW. He shot some photos on behalf of Studio@Gawker that we never got to show off because hell, we're busy people. So in the Throwback Thursday spirit, here's the festival through Ryan's eyes (or lens, whatever).

Sixth Street is central to much of the action that takes place during the festival. The streets are full of visitors and industry professionals, creating a bustling and busy atmosphere for two weeks straight.

Many bars off Sixth Street see a surge in business when the festival's in town, so they offer reduced covers, live music, and Texas-specific attractions like mechanical bull riding. Pictured above is a SXSW night at The Trophy Club.

Wristbands are as much of a fashion statement as your pants and shirt. Attendees often wear these colorful bands for days and even weeks after the festival ends.

By the end of the week, panels, parties and showcases blend together into a hazy blur of business cards, buzz bands and blisters.
