March 13th kicked off SXSW Music which “showcases roughly 2,000 musical acts from around the globe, representing well over 50 different countries, on over 90 stages in downtown Austin.”
“That’s where the joy is to be found, in the moment of watching the band, of watching the video, or of making the thing, of playing the song. You know it when you get goose bumps, when you get chills that run up and down your body.” – Andrew W.K.

We can’t resist the opportunity to tune in to music so good it gives us goose bumps, which is exactly why we’re headed to SXSW this week…
GoPano micro 360 Lens Hits the Streets at SXSW®
Although our GoPano team will not be in Austin this year (in-person), our GoPano micro 360 lens will be capturing the full SXSW Music experience first hand through Brick + Mortar’s interactive 360 video tour diary.
Indie rock duo, Brick + Mortar, will be playing a series of showcases at SXSW, equipped with a GoPano micro to encapsulate the live on-stage action, and more! Straight out of New Jersey, “Brick + Mortar represents the underground, the oppressed, the disillusioned, and voiceless.” “Their live show is a party that erupts like a magnetic sonic volcano catching the attention of everyone in the room, drawing them to the stage full of intrigue and energy.”
Get a GoPano glimpse of their tour vehicle through Day 2 of the 360 video tour diary, below:
