SXSW Quotes: 'Seen And Heard' At Austin's Epic Music Festival (PHOTOS)

Our new series, "Seen and Heard," introduces great quotes from the past week. From hilariously ignorant to downright eloquent, we're on the lookout for the best gallery-goer and concert commentary we can find. (Hint: Submissions are welcome!)

Anyone with a social media account knows that the last two weeks of Twitter updates and Instagram snapshots have been dominated by the musical force of nature known as South By Southwest (SXSW). The 2013 shindig, which took over Austin from March 8 to March 17, saw a healthy dose of emerging artists and big name acts plant their equipment on makeshift stages across the city, filling the warm Texas nights with music.

By now, we've all heard that Justin Timberlake, Prince, Kendrick Lamar and Smashing Pumpkins (among many others) closed out the final festival night with packed crowds. But aren't you wondering what music goers had to say about the epic, 10-day event as a whole?

Cue "Seen and Heard: SXSW Edition." We couldn't miss an opportunity to eavesdrop on the indie universe during this blessed occasion. Scroll through the slideshow below for a peek at the week's funniest quotes, and let us know your thoughts on SXSW in the comments.
