We do this every month and the only difference in March is that we welcome foreigners (people from outside of Austin), so check in to your fancy hotel and get a pedicab to take you to The Belmont, we'll be waiting to welcome you to town!

Howdy everyone, South-By is just around the corner, so its time to discuss how to start things right. Luckily, we have you covered! As we've done for the last three years, we've set up a lunch for Refreshers from around the world on Friday, March 11th from 11:30 to 2:30pm, to kick off SXSW Interactive. This is a great chance to catch up with Refreshers you met in years past and make some new friends before the conference starts i...n full. The lunch will be at B.D. Riley's, the same venue as in years past and will be a casual affair. We don't have any sponsors, so you'll need to pick up your own tab, but the pub is very accommodating and is happy to maintain separate checks. Even better, they're giving us happy hour prices and may throw in some appetizers. If you have any questions, please let me know. If possible please RSVP so we have an idea of how much space we'll need. That said, feel free to drop in even if you don't RSVP, all are welcome.

Mixergy SXSW Live Bonanza

Who: Entrepreneurs, startups, press, lurkers, and ambitious upstarts. How: Beer, awesome interviews and amazing people.   Details Think of it as the Mixergy you love...live and in person...with top interviewees...and drinks.   Making it possible Three people offered to sponsor the event and make it possible. Chris Savage, Wistia's founder, volunteered  to sponsor before I even knew where or when it'll take place. (Wistia is the video platform I use for all of Mixergy's videos. Try it and you'll see why.) Ben Welch-Bolen, CEO of Site5 Hosting, is a guy I personally asked over dinner to do a Mixergy interview but he refused because he's not ready to reveal how well Site5 is doing. (If you come, please help me persuade him.) Josh Kaufman is the author of Personal MBA, the Amazon.com Business Management Bestseller. After spending 5 minutes on the phone with him, I practically begged Josh to teach me. I think you'll want to grab his book. Todd Garland, the Founder of BuySellAds.com, bought my last sponsorship spot. How fitting! Did you know there's a page on his site where you can see how much ad money he generates for every one of the publishers in his network? Before you buy or sell an online ad, check this page out.   Credit where it's due The idea for this event wasn't mine. These two guys cooked it up and are helping me put it together. Noah Kagan - the founder of Killer Web Deals site, AppSumo.com and RewardLevel.com Damon Clinkscales - a software developer and community shepherd in Austin who is also a huge Mixergy fan. He loves to bring people together.

PSFK SALON AUSTIN: Future of Mobile Marketing

PSFK is the go to source for new ideas for creative business. Our events bring to life the discussion that takes place everyday on our site with a focus on particular areas of innovation.

For the PSFK SALON AUSTIN held at the Driskill Hotel during SXSW, we will bring together leading thinkers in mobile marketing together with experts featured in PSFK's Future of Mobile Tagging report. 

Marketers are using mobile technology to enhance consumer engagement at each stage of the traditional purchase path, impacting how shoppers move through it and sometimes transforming what the path looks like entirely. As part of this this event, PSFK will discuss with key experts themes that are emerging around the use of mobile tags and other innovations in mobile marketing.

WordPress Party

Pat Ramsey, of the Austin WordPress Meetup, and I agreed that SXSW Interactive 2011 would be the perfect place to host another party. I then contacted Jason and Aaron at WP Engine, and they said:Count us in!

We picked a date and I contacted John Wickham to reserve Elysium for the event. When you combine Austin's WordPress community with all the WordPress users coming to Austin for SXSW, you'll need a big venue. Elysium is 3 blocks from the convention center, has a great stage and sound system, and can hold hundreds.

Maple Leaf Digital Lounge

Introducing the Maple Leaf Digital Lounge: at the South by Southwest Interactive Conference. The Maple Leaf Digital Lounge (MLDL) is a pioneering event to be held during the Interactive portion of the 2011 South by Southwest Conference (SXSW) with the intent to highlight and promote innovative Canadian companies to the attendees of the SXSW conference (mainly professionals from the marketing, web development, mobile, software development, social media, gaming, digital media and venture capital). We are creating a cluster of Canadian technology that will be promoted at this event.  This is a unique concept and Canada is the only country to host “a lounge” at this conference. It will act as a catalyst in promoting Canadian innovation to a large technology & media audience. 

 

Currently, the MLDL is looking for Canada’s top “Interactive” companies. Do you have cutting edge “commercial ready” technology and looking to promote your company (technology) at the South by Southwest Conference? By “Commercial Ready”, we mean technology that has been developed and is currently generating revenue or will be within 6 months.  We want to hear from digital media technology companies focused in the following industries: social media, mobile, marketing, multi-media, game development, web development or any related IT areas. At the event, each company will have a table set up/booth to showcase their technology over a two-day period.

 

What is South by Southwest?

South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of film, interactive and music festivals and conferences that take place every spring in Austin, Texas, United States. SXSW first began in 1987 and is centered on the downtown Austin Convention Center. Each of the three parts runs independently, with different start and end dates.  SXSW Interactive has attracted a strong following among web creators and entrepreneurs. SXSW Interactive's focus on emerging technology has earned the festival a reputation as a breeding ground for new ideas and creative technologies. Twitter launched at SXSW Interactive in 2007.

 

Submission details: Submit a one page executive summary highlighting the technology or service that you want to display at the Maple Leaf Digital Lounge.  This document should list the principals/management team of the company, the company website and any other related details of the technology.

http://www.mapleleafdigitallounge.com/apply.php

 

Are you heading down to SXSW and are interested in supporting fellow Canadians, or want to check out some new innovative digital technology? Stop by the lounge, let us know you are coming and add yourself to our attendee list: http://eventmobi.com/mldl/attendee_edit/771

The League of Extraordinary Hackers

Google's League of Extraordinary Hackers is the premier event for getting the inside scoop straight from Google's engineering, business development, and developer relations teams.

From fast-paced "API Briefings" that reintroduce Google's developer products (APIs, tools, and services) to more intimate office hours held by the the speakers themselves, there should be something for all kinds of developers and startupers.

Visit our chillout lounge and recharge your feet — and your laptop. Take a load off in the YouTube Leanback Lounge, and check out the the latest offerings from YouTube and Google TVs.

Expect demos, razor-sharp tech conversation, and a sampling of the best of Google's developer offerings.

Immediately followed by SHDH@SXSW.

Austin JavaScript Party

That time of year is here again, where we in the Austin JavaScript community close our laptops and instead have a few beers together. After such a successful event last year at Kung Fu Saloon, we decided to do the same thing this year, but with more reasons to come out and support the community.

First, this year, we will be requiring attendees to either have an official SXSW badge or two cans of food to donate to the Capital Area Food Bank. With such a huge turnout last year, why wouldn’t we use this as an opportunity to raise awareness and help stamp out hunger in the greater Austin area. A party with a cause! Party details are as follows:

  • Free Texas Beer
  • Free Authentic Tex-Mex Tacos courtesy of Torchy’s Tacos
  • Free Gaming at Kung Fu Saloon including Skeeball and all Vintage Arcade Games
  • Free No Strings-Attached Door Prize Giveaways Every Hour (iPad, Android Tablet, Amazon Kindle, Microsoft Kinect, a ticket to TXJS and possibly more)
  • Free Swag Bags to Take Home full of Goodies

Of course none of this would be possible without the unwavering support of our gracious sponsors: Microsoft (IE Team)SolvateMozilla (Developer Engagement)TekSystems and Cultivate PR.

Microsoft will actually be out engaging and entertaining all who attend to check out the latest version of IE9 and to assist developers preparing their sites and apps now.  You do know that IE9 is at release candidate state, right?

SuperHappyDevHouse

For the first time ever, SuperHappyDevHouse is coming to SXSW! Join us for an evening of hacking, revelry, LEGO® MINDSTORMs® roboticking, and good times that the Silicon Valley event is known for the world over.Don't miss this! 


What is SuperHappyDevHouse?

The original idea for SHDH was something like “20% time for people who don’t work at Google” (even though the event wasn’t founded by Googlers). The event has since evolved into a monthly collaborative event for exchanging ideas, working together, and celebrating the spirit of the independent, DIY hacker.


The DevHouse will kick off at 7pm following the transition from the Google Developer Event. We will open the event with welcome remarks, an overview of the venue and what’s happening where and follow with a vivid retelling (and slideshow) of the history of DevHouse, beginning with its roots in Silicon Valley and spreading worldwide. We’ll also describe the LEGO® hackathon taking place on the third floor throughout the event and invite participation. We’ll close by thanking each sponsor and announcing the sponsored drinks; food will be served and all three bars will open.


Around 8:15pm we’ll prep for lightning talks on the main stage on the first floor. We expect fast-paced, intelligent, funny, and clever talks to run one after another — no more than 5 minutes each — covering subjects like tech hacks, big ideas, best practices, crazy experiences, or other topics that might interest the varied DevHouse audience.

Drupal Party

SXSW Interactive is the week immediately following DrupalCon Chicago, and we're going to both. You should too.

DrupalCon ends on Thursday. SXSW begins on Friday, and runs until Tuesday. We're throwing the party on a Monday night, so you'll have a few days to recover from DrupalCon. Good luck with that.

Austin is home to SXSW Interactive AND the largest DrupalCamp to date. We expect this to be a huge bash, so we reserved Elysium -- which is three blocks from the convention center and holds a whole lotta people.

Hope you can join us!

Music Fog Showcase

It is Year 4, as once again Music Fog takes the stage in the Saloon Room at Threadgill's WHQ(AKA&. the back room, on the stage against the ruby velvet curtains,) 301 W. Riverside, in South Austin TX. It is an unofficial showcase so no badges or wristbands are necessary, just a desire to eat some good ole homemade food, and see some cooking music. We at Music Fog put the four day schedule together, and our video cameras will be rolling as we gather content for www.musicfog.com. Most times we do our thing behind closed doors, but this gig, we invite you to come and hang in the room for our taping. The Music Fog Motto, after all, is "How Hard Could It Be&.." and the answer, at least when we come to Threadgills is, "Pretty Damn Easy!" What with onsite parking, air conditioning, any drink of any color that you might want, Southern home-style fare with loads of vegetables, and the ever important indoor plumbing with those fancy new 'no hands towel machines. I don't know, they just intrigue me! And really, why would you even think of going anywhere else?

Music Fog Showcase

It is Year 4, as once again Music Fog takes the stage in the Saloon Room at Threadgill's WHQ(AKA&. the back room, on the stage against the ruby velvet curtains,) 301 W. Riverside, in South Austin TX. It is an unofficial showcase so no badges or wristbands are necessary, just a desire to eat some good ole homemade food, and see some cooking music. We at Music Fog put the four day schedule together, and our video cameras will be rolling as we gather content for www.musicfog.com. Most times we do our thing behind closed doors, but this gig, we invite you to come and hang in the room for our taping. The Music Fog Motto, after all, is "How Hard Could It Be&.." and the answer, at least when we come to Threadgills is, "Pretty Damn Easy!" What with onsite parking, air conditioning, any drink of any color that you might want, Southern home-style fare with loads of vegetables, and the ever important indoor plumbing with those fancy new 'no hands towel machines. I don't know, they just intrigue me! And really, why would you even think of going anywhere else?

Threadless Presents: Schubas & Lincoln Hall's 15th Annual SXSW RoundUp

Fourteen years ago, when South By Southwest was not yet the music industry juggernaut it is today, Schubas decided to showcase some of the best Chicago bands making the 1,170-mile trek to Austin, TX. Thursday was deemed the perfect day to welcome all SXSW attendees. Good music, along with BBQ, beer and booze seemed the most appropriate formula, thus an annual event- and one ofSXSW’s first daytime parties- was born.

Since 1996, as beer-drenched-SXSW-day-parties became customary, Schubas’ national prominence has evolved and so has our annual SXSW Round-Up. The party still features Chicago bands, but also includes a large array of popular acts from throughout the world, who have played, or will be playing, Lincoln Hall or Schubas. The BBQ, beer and booze remain firmly intact.

Our day parties will feature performances from the likes of Datarock, The Submarines, Hieroglyphics, Matt Nathanson,The Rural Alberta Advantage, The Boxer Rebellion, and many many many more (see the list below).

The shows are happening at The Phoenix (409 B. Colorado St.) from 12 to 7 PM, Tuesday 3/15 through Friday, 3/18. Each day will feature a variety of great bands, including a party for all you Interactive folks on Tuesday, and a day entirely devoted to the best hip-hop Austin has to offer on Wednesday. The parties are sponsored by Baeblemusic, as well as Lexus, MOG and ROKU.

RSVP to our events at Eventbrite and on Facebook. And don't forget to download our iPhone app to stay up to date with the latest news and schedule/set times!

Music Fog Showcase

It is Year 4, as once again Music Fog takes the stage in the Saloon Room at Threadgill's WHQ(AKA&. the back room, on the stage against the ruby velvet curtains,) 301 W. Riverside, in South Austin TX. It is an unofficial showcase so no badges or wristbands are necessary, just a desire to eat some good ole homemade food, and see some cooking music. We at Music Fog put the four day schedule together, and our video cameras will be rolling as we gather content for www.musicfog.com. Most times we do our thing behind closed doors, but this gig, we invite you to come and hang in the room for our taping. The Music Fog Motto, after all, is "How Hard Could It Be&.." and the answer, at least when we come to Threadgills is, "Pretty Damn Easy!" What with onsite parking, air conditioning, any drink of any color that you might want, Southern home-style fare with loads of vegetables, and the ever important indoor plumbing with those fancy new 'no hands towel machines. I don't know, they just intrigue me! And really, why would you even think of going anywhere else?

Austin Texas is known for a few important things: breakfast tacos, warm weather, and a little gathering known as South By Southwest, a meeting of music and technology for a week-long party consisting of thousands of bands playing hundreds of shows every day across the city. Last year we took Texas with one day, and this year, we're claiming four. Our day parties will feature performances from the likes of Datarock, The Submarines, Hieroglyphics, Matt Nathanson,The Rural Alberta Advantage, The Boxer Rebellion, and many many many more (see the list below).

The shows are happening at The Phoenix (409 B. Colorodo St.) from 12 to 7 PM, Tuesday 3/15 through Friday, 3/18. Each day will feature a variety of great bands, including a party for all you Interactive folks on Tuesday, and a day entirely devoted to the best hip-hop Austin has to offer on Wednesday. The parties are sponsored by Baeblemusic, as well as Lexus, MOG and ROKU.

RSVP to our events at Eventbrite and on Facebook. And don't forget to download our iPhone app to stay up to date with the latest news and schedule/set times!

Standard Records Presents: Commodore Von Keepsie's Craftacular Music Carnivale (FREE w/ RSVP)
THIS EVENT IS BY INVITATION ONLY

Check out this SPECTACULAR event!  Free booze, free food,  free DIY craft tables, awesome homemade craft vendors,  belly dancers, great bands, and maybe even a robot.   You don't want to miss this event!

Ages ago, when political and military skirmishes spread across the globe, one man grew tired of the constant upheaval and war. Commodore Von Keepsie ordered his troops to lay down their arms for one day, and, instead, commanded the men under his keep to spend the day throwing massive parties across his empire. After that, no one felt like fighting again, opting instead to work out their differences through revelry and libations.

Standard Recording Co., in part with many friendly allies, invoke the spirit of Commodore Von Keepsie for the 2011 South By Southwest with a massive party in the heart of Austin. Not content with only aural pleasures, the Craftacular Music Carnivale will remain true its namesake by hosting the Hello Craft Make Something Awesome Area, Handmade Promenade market, and screen printing from ProvoCraft's Yudu. The Commodore will also call upon his faithful band of merrymakers, inviting them to perform visual displays of stunning imagination. In short, everyone attending the Craftacular Music Carnivale is certain to take away a cornucopia of literal and figurative souvenirs upon their departure, preserving the Commodore’s message of revelry.

Complimentary libations will be provided by Graham's Texas Sweet Tea Vodka & Treaty Oak Platinum Rum.

The Standard party is free and open to the public. Space is limited, and although we'll make every effort, an RSVP does not guarantee entry though preference will be given to those who RSVP.

REDEFINE Magazine’s House Party

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.

FREE ++ BYOB ++ SOME SNACKS FOR EARLY ATTENDEES.

The Midwest Music Foundation is proud to present the MidCoast Takeover, March 18th and 19th, 12pm-2am, at The Liberty showcasing over 30 acts from Kansas City, Lawrence, and the Midwest region. Partnering with Midwestern Indie label The Record Machine, music magazines PopWreckoning and INK, and Kansas City’s premiere live music venues The Record Bar, Crosstown Station, and The Riot Room, MidCoast Takeover will bring artists from Kansas City and the region to the national stage at South by Southwest. Sponsored by Kansas City’s Boulevard Brewing Company, (available on tap throughout the event) MidCoast Takeover promises two days of music, mayhem, and general debauchery-the definitive Midwestern musical throw down. The Midwest Music Foundation is proud to support the DIY spirit of Kansas City’s intrepid and inspired music community. Up from the gut, out from the middle, we are the sound of the heart of American music.

Music by the Slice

Home Slice Pizza is stoked to announce Music by the Slice 2011.  This free day party (no rsvp, no badge required) runs March 17-19, from 1 PM to 7 PM daily. This year, for the first time, we are donating all of the profits from bar sales to charity!!!

Our charity for 2011 are the excellent folks over at Urban Roots – a sustainable farming program for young Austinites. Here is a little bit about them:

Now in our fourth year, Urban Roots is a youth development program that uses sustainable agriculture as a means to transform the lives of young people and increases the access of healthy food in Austin. By growing sustainably farmed vegetables, young people work together to serve the community, cultivate farming and business skills, learn the value of meaningful work, and discover how to eat and cook in healthy ways.
