We’ve been spotting quite a few parties with Facebook invite RSVPs that need to go in your schedule ASAP. Remember: We can’t RSVP you for events that are only on Facebook, so be sure to check the chart if you’re using RSVPster for FB invites (listed in purple). Here’s a few of our favorites so far (and not just because we don’t have to spend hours filing in name/email forms):
The Barbarian Group & Tumblr want to take you on a Robotrip (no, they aren’t providing the tussin), and it’s going to be big. Two venues big. Giant dance party on Red River big. Hit up Mohawk & Club DeVille — who “like Voltron, have joined-up, allowing seamless access between the two venues for this historic event” — for the only official SXSW show that’s free and open to the public. This is the first party we’re *truly* freaking out over. Check out their FB invite — there’s no RSVP needed, doors open at 6PM on 3/12, and here’s the full line-up:
Slip + Lovitt = Love: A SXSW Day Party – 3.15
We’re into anyone who will throw an SX party at Club 1808 (rumor has it the east side bar near everyone’s favorite intersection will be booked for all of SX by a bad ass event, but we can’t share on this just yet). Slip Productions and Lovitt Records & Artist Growth present Slip + Lovitt = Love: A SXSW Day Party on Thursday, March 15th. Get there early, doors at 11AM and the party goes till the evening. Also, we hear Baby Blue Studios just down 12th Street will also have events during SX music — so be sure to wander from downtown and go east — these shows will be worth it.
6:00 Sleepytime Trio
2:30 Soccer Team

12:15 Beasts of No Nation
The Convoy Group Presents HOUSTON INVASION @ SXSW – 3.16
Houston is trying their best to convince us of two things during SX — 1) that they’ve got an interesting, up-in-coming music scene (this part is true), and 2) prove that a good party can happen at Gypsy Lounge (this part will be a first). We’ve seen a number of these Third Coast bands play over the past few years (Free Press Summerfest, etc), and you’ve got to take advantage of seeing these bands play without the drive to Screwston. With a line-up including Buxton, Wild Moccasins, The Tontons, The Handshake, and Bang Bangz, this Houston Invasion hits E. 6th starting at 10AM on 3/16. View the FB invite for more information.
