With badge pickup for the music portion of South by Southwest open, a changing of the guard is afoot.

While the crowds at Austin Convention Center are as thick as ever, spillover into the streets of downtown Austin is relatively quiet at this point.

“This year it seems a little bit calmer that last year, so far,” Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo said.  “Music starts tomorrow, so we anticipate things to start heating up.”

The chief’s SXSW plans? “I’ll be putting on my shorts … grabbing a bicycle and working, cycling around – keeping it green and keeping it weird here in Austin, Texas.”
