5. FeelTrip Showcase--Friday March 20th @ ???

If you're interested in avoiding the overcrowded SXSW streets downtown and are looking for something off the beaten (and hella sponsored) path, the showcase put on by FeelTrip Records will be a great option for you. The location is ~undisclosed~ as of now, but will be somewhere off I35 and Slaughter Lane, a 10 minute drive from downtown. There will be free Chicago style hot dogs (yas), free beer (yaaaas), and free performances by Twin Peaks, Meat bodies, Tweens, and White Mystery. Check out the event page on March 18th for the location and for Lyft promo codes.


6. Burger Pool Party--Thursday March 19th @ Pearl Street Co-op

Burger Records is putting on heaps of SXSW parties this year, and one worth checking out is the Pool Party that's going down Thursday, March 19th. This party is for chillers only and those down to clown and spend the day by the pool rocking out at Pearl Street Co-op near the University of Texas. This will be a real college 'spraaang break' kind of deal.


7. Hot Burrito STXST Patricks Day Kick Off Party--Tuesday March 17th @Hotel Vegas

Start your epic week off right with a St Patrick's party SXSW-style with Thee Oh Sees, Paul Collins, Iceage, Gooch Palms, and Institute. The event claims to be the "BEST PARTY TO EVER HAPPEN ON A TUESDAY IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND!!!!!!" and we are more than ready to hold them to it.
