garage _ psych _ dance Non-Official SXSW Party: Press Release


For the first year ever, REDEFINE magazine — a Pacific Northwest-based independent music, art, and film blog — has decided to undertake the daunting task of throwing a show at SXSW.

After partnering with influential Dallas-based mixtape blog, Clumsy & Shy, and enlisting the help of Portland, OR booker, The Petite Zarathustran, the collaborative trio employed DIY tactics and ideals to scrap together a doozy of a SXSW house party. The thirty-band lineup will reflect the locales of the party throwers, with nine performers from the Pacific Northwest and six from Austin or its surrounding areas.

The unofficial house party will be an all-day gathering on Friday, March 18th, 2011, at a 21-person vegan housing co-op calledHouse Of Commons (2610 Rio Grande St., Austin, TX 78705). An indoor and outdoor stage will include headlining acts like Starfucker, Casiokids, Prince Rama, Class Actress, BRAHMS, The Night Beats, Woodsman, and Moon Duo.

In the spirit of the publication’s mission statement, the event will be entirely FREE to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis, without any RSVP limitations.
