The Cult rocked SXSW in Austin twice over the weekend. The first show, on Friday night (Mar. 17), was followed a second – and free – concert on Saturday (Mar. 18). The free show was a part of the 25,000-capacity Auditorium Shores Stage Concert Series. Austin resident, music lover and actor Matthew McConaughey jammed on bongos for a couple of songs with the band, including the band’s 1984 classic, ‘Spiritwalker.’

The Cult also performed a few tracks from their forthcoming album, “Choice Of Weapon,” due May 22 at the shows. Here’s some fan shot footage of the various SXSW gigs.
