The best parts of SXSW are the surprise moments. The bands you don't plan to see, the people you had no idea you'd meet, the sheer unpredictability that forces you to just go with the flow.

Most of my favorite SXSW moments this year stem from accidentally encountered awesomeness. But that said, it's no accident that these performers are at SXSW.

As I headed down to Austin to moderate our Guitar World panel on guitar apps, I tried to plan my schedule. Now I know resistance is futile. I should just give in to the good vibes at SXSW and bask in the diversity of amazing performances that make SXSW what it is: A mishmash of amazing wall-to-wall talent.

Check out the photo gallery below for some of my favorite moments this year.

Favorite surprise moment: Walking in randomly to the Saddle Creek Records showcase and stumbling upon Big Harp's Stefanie Drootin-Senseney takes the prize. Wow. She is a truly skilled bass player with a rare sound, feel, and dexterity that combine into the perfect fusion of raunch and mastery. Look for more on her coming soon! bigharp.com
