Brangelina in Austin, but a no-show for R.E.M.

Now here’s something we didn’t expect to see at South by Southwest: none other than Angelina Jolie strolling down Congress Ave. (Austin’s main drag) just like any of the other 50,000 out-of-towners who have descended on the Texas capital. There she was on Wednesday, walking sans Brad Pitt, who is also in Austin filming the new Terrence Malick film, Tree of Life (co-starring Sean Penn). EW.com has learned that Pitt requested several tickets to see SXSW’s hottest opening night show, R.E.M. at Stubb’s Wednesday night, but was told that the band had maxed out their guest list, and while they’d happily take care of the super-star couple, they couldn’t accommodate a larger entourage. As far as we could tell, Pitt and Jolie didn’t show after that.
