Every year South by Southwest takes the city of Austin by storm. The giant block party attracts some of the hottest established national touring acts, as well as new and rising talent to venues across the entire city. Badges and wristbands can get pricey, but what a lot of people don’t realize is that there are plenty of unofficial SXSW parties that only require an RSVP.

We’re doing our part in keeping that free SXSW spirit alive by throwing two crazy, wild and fun unofficial SXSW parties. Both events are loaded with good music, and all you have to do is RSVP!

Gravitas Music Showcase – 3/18 – Barcelona

SXSWWe’re throwing an all day rager at Austin’s favorite bass cave, Barcelona (209 E. 6th st) on Wednesday 3/18 during the music portion of SXSW. The event features a downtempo set by Liquid Stranger, as well as plenty of other Gravitas artists and homies: Psymbionic, D.V.S*, CloZee, AMB, Brede, Of The Trees, Blunt Force & Gater.

The music starts at 1PM and goes on until 7:30PM, so make sure to stop by and get a healthy dose of bass!
