SXSW is one of the greatest opportunities for artists the world over in every musical realm to aggregate into one city to showcase their talent. We’ve always been big advocates of SXSW, it’s not only hugely important to the artists themselves, but to everyone who’s an advocate of music as well. We’ve got our hands chock full of events over the course of the weekend, so if you’re in Austin for this grand musical gathering make sure to come say hi to us at all of these massive shows below. Bring us barbecue. Cheers.
First up for the week, this Thursday (March 15th) Check Yo Ponytail 2 has partnered with UWeekly Austin to bring you a Day Party featuring the Dum Dum Girls and Theophilus London and quite a few others as seen below. The party is free with your RSVP through DO512, and will be held from NOON to 7PM over at Emo’s East. Oh yeah, and it’s ALL AGES!
Friday March 16th SMOG Texas will be bringing some of the original dubstep dons (Skream, Benga, and Plastician) back to the humble grounds of Emo’s East in Austin, Texas for a massive day party. Best part perhaps? IT’S ALL AGES AND TOTALLY FREE WITH YOUR RSVP.

Check Yo Ponytail got Scion to host their SUPER PARTY and by the 12 lines of artists on the lineup, SUPER may even be too small of an adjective.
