Photos of Day 5 of SXSW taken by Vickey Ford of Sneakshot for Okayplalyer.

Our favorite photographer, the one and only, Vickey Ford of Sneakshot Photography takes audiophiles into SXSW with full access. Featuring pictures of Brooklyn’s own Desiigner070 ShakeEarl St. ClairKarriem Riggins and more — this is certainly a recap not to miss.

We first linked up at a music showcase at Austin’s Antone’s where Desiigner, who didn’t perform “Panda” or “Timmy Turner,” received a platinum plaque for selling 10 million singles. Eventually, we were able to get snaps of 070 Shake, Dave East and Amir Obe as well.

We left from there to head over to a showcase headlined by one of our favorite performers, Jamila Woods. There we saw Elzhi and Karriem Riggins who more than satiated our SXSW fix. For the rest of the hype, you can scroll through our gallery above, check out our other daily recaps here, as well as get some highlights from our @Okayplayer Twitter account.
