Death From Above 1979 played a secret show at SXSW over the weekend, one of their first in five years, which had to be temporarily shut down as frenzied fans unable to get in threatened to storm the venue.

Videos are springing up all over the web - here's a few goodins:

Outside the venue, shot by a cameraman for SPIN who couldn't get into the venue due to the crowds - check out those tazers...

Looked like fun...wish, even more, that we had been able to go to SXSW.
