    On Monday night, The Barbarian Group teamed up with Tumblr to throw the biggest rock party at SXSW interactive 2012. The masses took over Mohawk and Club DeVille, two of the hottest venues in Austin, to close out the interactive portion of SXSW. This was the only official SXSW show that was free and open to the public and it attracted an eclectic crowd itching to kick off the music festival.

    The bands to hit the stage included WAVVES, Sleep Over, Kool Keith, Japandroids, Beach Fossils, Bear in Heaven, Matthew Dear, and The Young.

    Getting my #robotrip on with @tumblr. Got Kool Keith on the menu!

    Here is how the crowd got their Robotrip on:

    Some people showed up solo

    Others wished they were ridin' solo

    Awkward friendships developed...possibly with Jesus

    Some rallied in a different way

    The foodies feasted, big time

    People got tatted-up

    Some brought out classic dance moves

    Others decided to double-fist

    But the masses, chugged five hour energies and got their Robotrip on.

    With the night's insane line-up
