SXSW 2014: Best Bets For Tuesday

The SXSW Music Conference officially kicks off today, but it's sort of a soft launch; with a majority of attendees arriving no earlier than that afternoon, Tuesday's music festivities are relatively limited, and don't really get going until after dark. In fact, one of Tuesday's best bets isn't even part of the Music Conference, but… More »

Austin Denies Permit For Lady Gaga To Play In A Giant Doritos Vending Machine At SXSW

Two years ago, one of the greatest, weirdest landmarks in downtown Austin during SXSW was the Doritos Stage, a gigantic monstrosity made up to look like an actual vending machine, with giant Doritos bags up front and people performing down where, on a regular-sized vending machine, the food would fall out.

Apple’s Bringing iTunes Festival (And Coldplay) To SXSW

In recent years, it wouldn't be SXSW without corporations bringing giant stars to SXSW and generally undermining what dorks like us thought was the point of the entire event.

$20 In My Pocket: A Cheap SXSW Diary

Ostensibly, attending Austin's logo-infused music (and movie, and tech) industry sprawl South By Southwest is expensive. Count on inflated airfare to Austin, $200 a night for a downtown hotel room and hundreds of dollars for food and drinks — oh, and $625 for a badge, assuming you buy it early before the cost balloons to… More »
