It's pretty fair to say that in a moshpit SXSW attendees would trample UMF attendees. The SXSW-ers, being in Austin, have Texas power, and the UMF-ers, in Miami, might just be too numb to feel it. Both events took place in March 2012. I like to do photos of each but because I've been so busy I knew the only realistic thing was to put them in a head-to-head smackdown. Props to the photographers—credits are inline as usual. Bam!
