Sad news from Austin.

SXSW has come and gone, but there is no doubt that we made some lasting musical memories at our 7th Annual One Night In Austin!

The tide was high with the legendary Blondie on the stage, but our other acts including A Great Big World, Ingrid Michaelson, and Betty Who weren't too shabby either! LOLz!

Still, the best part of the AH-mazing evening had to have been sharing our melodic heaven with the thousands of attendees who helped us raise $37,500 for VH1's Save The Music!

And we couldn't have accomplished ANY of it without our sponsors: Hello Products, The Naked Grape, Strongbow Hard Apple Ciders, Guess Eyewear, and TY KU!

Whether or not you were able to join us for the extravaganza, we took PLENTY of snaps for us to relive the greatest One Night In Austin yet!

Tyler, The Creator's Crazy Riot At SXSW Caught On Camera! See The Insane Anarchy HERE!

| Filed under: Legal MattersSXSWScary!

tyler the creator arrested inciting a riot  opt

WHOA.

There is no describing the riot that Tyler, The Creator inspired at his SXSW show on Saturday in Austin.

Thankfully, we have the chaos all on camera!

The Odd Future rapper evidently chanted "push" into the microphone as a herd of his fans pushed down doors and security.

Yeesh! We know he likes to cause trouble like joy riding with Justin Bieber, but we'd say the city already had their fill the night before with that fatal drunk driving accident.

Perhaps next time Tyler should think about the safety of his fans??!

Ch-ch-check out the mayhem that led to his arrest…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
