    Emo’s still appears to be empty Saturday night. Do you expect another big announcement? Any guesses?

  • Does a wristband get me into the shows at the Cafe Stage at the Convention Center? Or is that badge only?

    • Robert Duffy

      I am pretty sure that convention center stages are badges only, but I am not positive..

      • Dan

        I saw Liam Finn on one of the convention center stages last year with only a wristband, for what it’s worth.

        • Porter

          There was also a table full of free tickets to each of the events in front of the 2 entrances last year as well. They still let the badges in first but you may be able to pick up these tickets and get into the shows too.

  • blanche

    I believe that band wristbands and badges can get into the day stage cafe, but the security isn’t as strict there as at the evening venues. Worth a try at least I would say.

  • King Air is looking to play a dayshow. We’re in Austin 24/7 and can rock at a moment’s notice. Debut CD coming out next month. EPK at http://www.sonicbids.com/kingair

    Wristband wise, save your $$$. You can pretty much see everyone during the day, often with free beer. Band wristbands are a different color and they will usually screen you at the entrance to the convention center.

  • Kevin

    Has anybody seen any ‘mass’ download of all the bands playing SXSW?
