Is there a better way to celebrate the up-and-coming talent of the Boston music scene at SXSW than with a rowdy party on St. Patrick's Day?

Shoegaze, deep disco, fuzzy guitars, post-Americana, sharp spinning, electronic tendencies, soaring voices: It's all there in the lineup, and Converse and DigBoston.com are bringing it from Boston to Austin.
