tomorrow is much of a discount. $129 for the wristband better deal.
from one of my favorite labels, home tapes, via twitter: “We’ll be announcing our Friend Island SXSW party soon!”
Schedules and artist links are live now at sxsw.com!
steal a badge of a participant. it is real easy.
Emo’s still appears to be empty Saturday night. Do you expect another big announcement? Any guesses?
stubbs is empty on friday night as well.. auditorium shores only has one night listed so far. guess there could still be a few surprises.
Rumor going around Austin is that Metallica will be performing @ Stubbs BBQ

Looking for shows to perform at. DJ or Live Performance.
Does a wristband get me into the shows at the Cafe Stage at the Convention Center? Or is that badge only?
I am pretty sure that convention center stages are badges only, but I am not positive..
I saw Liam Finn on one of the convention center stages last year with only a wristband, for what it’s worth.
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.
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.
Has anybody seen any ‘mass’ download of all the bands playing SXSW?
