SXSW Obsession Part 5: Parties/Unofficial Showcases

March 12, 2010

Alright folks, this is it…the last of my SXSW Obsession posts!  So, I was going to go through the work of finding all the party posters, the RSVP websites, etc, etc, for this post, but then I realized something.  There are a hundred websites collecting that information already, who have been doing it for weeks now, and are doing it much better then I ever could.

So instead, for this post, I’m just going to list what parties I have down for both my personal agenda, as well as the parties we are actually going to cover for our ME-TV SXSW Special.  These are the biggies, but they’re by no means the only parties happening each day; like I said, these are the ones I’m going to attend.  Rest assured, if I’m excited about attending, there are going to freebies – free booze, giveaways, food, plus great entertainment!

For exhaustive lists of parties, links to RSVPs, and important info, check out these worthy sources:

Austin 360’s SXSW on the side: A dauntingly informative list of parties, both official and unofficial.  A great place to Ctrl+F if you already know which parties RSVPs you’re looking for.

New Music Tip Sheet’s Free PDF: Want something printable?  The New Music Tip Sheet has you covered.  Spend the better part of a day scouring over it and highlighting what you want to attend.  The downside is that there are no links to get you to the RSVPs.

Republic of Austin’s SXSW Party RSVPs: A blog listing all the events that you would need to RSVP to.  This site is best for people who don’t have a badge at all.

The Austinist’s SXSWist: A great clickable website with tons of links and info.  Very comprehensive.
