SXSW is back

SXSW is back

SXSW 2013 is here and we are ready to bring you the best that Austin has to offer.


Welcome back fellow citizens of the world. The City of Austin welcomes you and we hope you enjoy your ”short” stay. The Festival is a 2 week long event filled to the rim with music acts and the film part of it. The industry says it’s a god thing for up and coming film makers and for already established movie houses, they get to show the films with a pre-selected crowd. By that I mean, only those with badges or wristbands will get access to most of the showcase events.

Locals and people without $1595 for a platinum badge or the music portion at a mere $795 would be out of luck. Well, if you’re not flowing on cash or don’t own a cash tree then maybe you can perhaps get some of the “Free” events. There are a few of those scatered around town, you must RSVP to make sure you get in, there are lines, lines and lines. Plenty of waiting and if you’re optimistic as myself perhaps some fun.

Remember that parking Downtown Austin will be living hell, so I suggest to take the bus or better yet the rail train to downtown and walk to whatever you’re able to get in. The central streets are blocked so if you’re not feeling like looking to each side of the road before crossing, you will be fine. At least for this time of the year, but remeber you’ll get tired of the walking and those pedicabs can be pricy, so just plan your evening and remeber to always have fun.

Pictures of our adventures to come soon. Still trying to convince myself of living the peace of my sanctuary to go there. Oh, man.. I hope I survive another SXSW.

Here are some of the Free things i mentioned earlier, feel free to RSVP.

SXSW Fest 2012

Things are very interesting during SXSW Fest in Austin, Texas. There are fashion shows, music performances and public performances on the streets near the convention center. The streets downtown are blocked to allow people to walk from venue to venue. It’s usually a pretty neat event, except for the parking situation. This year I decided to take advantage of the rail system in town and rode the train to the convention center, right at the heart of the madness.

Awesome!!, I skipped the mad drivers and the outrageous parking wars. Well, I arrived just in time to catch a fashion show and then many street performances and what not. The vendors are always interesting too, many come from different parts of the country so the goods are so cool.

Below are some images from a Fashion show we got to see as soon as we arrived to the epicenter, Convention Center. There the vendors were getting ready to leave for the day, many were still hanging out for the show but the mayority were wrapping things up for the next day as this was just the end for the sales.

The show was pretty interesting in the fact that they used local talent and musicians to collaborate on the presentation of the clothes. It’s fascinating how the Austin vibe is all so alive duing these events, and the apparel and music fields can combine to produce an event like this.
