What is SXSW?
In a nutshell, what exactly is it? Is it like the Magic show? Is it a convention? A tradeshow?
I'm at work so I can't spend a lot of time running through their site...
It's music, dude. Lots and lots of music.
but is it something you attend or something only for professionals? what's the big deal?
you need ears to attend..
and an assload of money..
actually, ears are optional, just bring sacks of cash
You can definitely attend. Of course, there are plenty of douche bag label types hanging around because of the showcases, but there are lots of shows at lots of different venues.
Oh, and then there's this seedy little poster convention called Flatstock happening, too.
tons of shows at tons of venues all at the same time in austin. HUNDREDS of bands.
a schmoozefest for professionals, a big party for music fans.
comprehensive passes cost around $100, i think.
there are music and film panels, trade shows, and FLATSTOCK.
so much freestuff during the day time even free beer just gotta where to go
