Filter always has great acts at their parties, so the music is worth seeing alone but free food and drinks never hurt!

RSVP here as always it doesn’t guarantee entry.

One year, I went to a MOKB day party that had free tacos and red stripe (there were really only about 50 tacos for everyone) and after the mad dash tacos was over I swear I had the best tacos and beer of my life! Because at SXSW that is all you eat and that is all you want! Trust me. So I recommend this party for those memories alone. But in case my stroll down memory lane isn’t enough to convince you to check out this party this year, look at the lineup!

Hype Hotel is back for 2013 but with some major changes. Hype Hotel is at a new location: The Whitley (3rd and San Jacinto), and most importantly their night parties are now official parties. That means unlike years past, you will not be able to get into their night events without a badge or wristband (and I am guessing they will reach capacity). But they still have day parties open to those who RSVP starting March 13 through the 16th. This is one of the few events where your RSVP is actually required, so make sure you RSVP. There were some issues with RSVP yesterday but it seems like they have sorted everything out. Full Schedule and Lineups haven’t been annouced, but you can RSVP now, and we will update you when a full schedule is up.

Day Party Hosts  (11am -6pm):
March 13: Gorilla vs. Bear/
March 14: I Guess I’m Floating/YVYNYL
March 15: Stereogum
March 16: PORTALS

Also they are looking for volunteers so if you live in Austin and want to help out go HERE


Been meaning to post about this party for over a week now. But it is worth the wait, because this party has free food and booze! And we love everything sxsw and free! The line up is pretty solid, some great bands I am really looking forward to seeing. It takes place over two days all afternoon, evening and night at Shiner’s Saloon, 422 Congress Ave. As soon as we have a complete set list we will share it with you. No RSVP needed. Check out the showcase’s  music sampler .
