AP.net at SXSW 2014

Posted by: Ryan Gardner (03/10/14)
Spring Break is kicking off and that means it's time for SXSW to start up! I'll be hanging out throughout Austin this week, catching as many shows as I can. If you're around or you see me, feel free to give me a shout. You can follow me on Twitter or Instagram (@RyanGardnerC) to stay updated with what I'm doing. I think I'll be starting either tomorrow or Wednesday, and I'll be posting daily recaps on the site. Let the excitement, insanity, and exhaustion begin!

i want to say that iTunes Fest is only Music and platinum badges, but if you go to the moody theater they should be able to tell you for sure.

Gambino plays somewhere in SoCo for microsofts titanfall launch. If you are over 21 the spotify house seems to be popular and apparently kimmel still has seats for tonight's show

Went on Sunday and only about 20 people an hour actually went (would have taken 3 hours) so instead I went inside to try out the actual game. Watched for a bit and it seemed fun but gimmick-ish, but as a marketing campaign it was near perfect. Cool that they make the game expo open to the public though, I had a blast watching little kids be marveled by all the old Nintendo consoles on display and people getting overall stoked on games from indie developers.

By the way. If anybody here has any leftover clothing swag like shirts, hoodies, hats or anything like the sort, there's a great locally ran campaign that gives that stuff you never gonna wear to the local homeless population in Austin.



Details about this over on Mashable> http://mashable.com/2014/03/09/sxsw-swag-for-homeless/

Planning to head to The Aquarium today for The American Scene, Mike Mains & The Branches, Dear You, Bleach Blonde and possibly For The Foxes/From Indian Lakes depending on when they play.

Then Brooklyn Vegan showcase tonight for Frameworks, Cheap Girls, Front Bottoms, Touche Amore, and Against Me
