SXSW is here! And this isn't your normal festival. This is 10 days of music, film, technology, comedy, and fun. So if you find yourself around downtown Austin there are a few things that you might consider bringing with you.
Bag - Don't try and be fashionable here. It's okay to bring a backpack or a large bag. You'll need the room to carry your survival kit.
Comfortable shoes - SXSW spreads out all over downtown Austin. Be prepared to walk between all the stuff you wanna see.
Water bottle - All that walking will make you thirsty and wouldn't you rather fill up at a water fountain than pay ten bucks for a water bottle every time?

SXSW Artist of the Day: J. Roddy Walston and the Business
3/5/2014 5:00:00 AM
If you've been listening to 101X for more than a day, you have probably heard this Tennessee band's song "Heavy Bells." If you've been hanging with us for more than a month, you may remember them from our Indie Workforce Christmas Concert at Emo's.
But, if you're new to the band, you have an awesome chance to get familiar: they're going to be in town for SXSW! J. Roddy and pals will be playing for all you people with music/platinum badges or music festival/artist wristband and the show is sure to be definitely worth your time.
Don't believe us? Check out this video of the band from that Christmas party we mentioned:
