hooray. i'm totally going unless... like... some kind of disability impares me or something.
Missed this years SxSW (raging) but hopefully going next year, if not then i'll be in a year long huff.
I'm in NYC at the same time so I can hardly complain.
with a lot of names I've never heard off. Better start investigating now ...
it's only 4 months away!
Won't make this one either. Boy do I miss it.
I mean, I can read the website, but what's the best way to go about getting tickets that actually get you into some decent shows?
you buy a pass, get into all shows - aslong as they are not too busy, otherwise you'll have to queue early to get in.
they get you into the shows behind the passholders. they don't get you into all the talks and stuff. i had one last year and had no problems getting into anything but i never bothered with any SUPER BUZZ BANDS.
they're a bit harder to get hold of though, i think the they sell them at some of the venues or if you know a band you can usually get one.
(but it may change for next year)
What does it say?
You need to have a local address to buy a wristband, and be able have a credit card registered at that address to buy one
Basically stopping locals buying them up and selling them on, which is what I said used to happen i.e. when I went in 2007
I'm never getting to SXSW.
i.e people who live in Austin
I think you can get hold of them, as residents buy them up and sell them on. Still cheaper than a pass
Pass gives you priority access to all evening shows at all venues. Then wristbands, then pay on the door
best week of the year
im going!! im wetting my little nicks! anyone in a band here that is going?!
I'm buying my 5 day pass now just so I can first in line to see them
The View too.
What fine ambassadors for our nation we have in those 2 bands.
