Editor: As she has in years past, Kalyn Heffernan from Wheelchair Sports Camp is documenting the band's trip to Austin for SXSW. Today, she's sent us portraits of each of the four outfits she wore at the festival this year. "I packed a good twenty-plus shirts/tanks, too many hats, shoes, and a bunch of shorts i wasn't able to wear this SXSW," she says. "More than half of my outfits were out of the question: Here were the few that made it. I always do my best rep my peoples on the road."

What she means by "out of the question" could be anything. Maybe it's the expected weather concerns (i.e. too cold for shorts), but there is very little about Kalyn Heffernan that qualifies as "expected." Some of her outfits may in fact have been risky legally for any number of reasons. Then again, maybe not. Historically, the possibility of getting arrested hasn't prevented her from doing much of anything. Regardless, we are confident you'll agree she made some excellent decisions.
