Most of the time, SXSW is all fun and games. A wondrous place where bands and fans of music (and the corporate sponsors that love them both) come together in harmony. And then sometimes it's a place where a drunk person can chuck a can of Shiner Bock at a police horse during a riot outside a DFA 1979 reunion show.
That horse, Officer Oats, was just two days away from retirement. He's getting too old for this shit.
