Florence Welch. Where: SXSW, Austin, Texas When: March 20, 2008 Why it was great: Florence arrived sans Machine or record deal. In what would later become the earliest recorded example of that 'inimitable Florence style', a star was born. She also ended her set by diving into the hotel lobby's waterfall to dance with her manager.
