SXSW 2018 Guide

Emily Treadgold #2, Festivals Leave a Comment

Hellooooooo spreadsheets. So here’s our spreadsheet, Sorry it’s incredibly confusing. Since we’re throwing a day party this year (RSVP and hang out with us if you haven’t) our schedule is a little different. Now, as far as SXSW goes, as a local, I know my maps, but I always back a strong backpack filled with phone chargers and 5 hour energy.

About Austin

Now quick Austin overview, while most of SXSW is downtown, the East Side is where the cool kids hang out plenty of fun bars down there. The best breakfast tacos are Veracruz Migas, the best foodtruck is Arlo's at Cheer Up Charlies (I'm vegetarian so I'm biased) Cheer Ups also has delicious kombucha cocktails. The best pizza is Via 313. I can't help you with barbecue but Jay-Z eats at La Barbecue so I'd take his word.

    Music aficionado and editor-in-chief at The New Nine. I'm most at home at festivals and concerts. I would love to start a band of all Kanye covers all on keys. I'm a dedicated Jack White fan and when I saw him in concert it changed my life. I'd never seen someone so passionate about music and preserving its history. Every project he does I just worship.
