Austin Sound & Cinema: “Labyrinth” w/ Super Creeps


Have we discovered the best possibly way possible to watch Labyrinth? We think so. Outdoors, picnic style, view of the city, food trucks, drink, and live frickin’ music from Super Creeps. We’re super stoked to head over to Austin Sound & Cinema this Wednesday June 5th, and have already booked the rest of the movie dates in our cal (that’s short for calendar. What was the point of shortening that?).

Make sure you twerk your commute via car2go, bike or carpool, because as we all know, downtown Austin gets crowded as shizz when there’s free events. We’re ok with that. Question: how many people can you fit in a car2go? Two. We’re not admitting to shoving more than two into one of those awesome clown cars…at least not in the past four days. Wait, three days. Nevermind. The point is, they will have a free car2go drop off zone at the park so you can fill up as many cars as you can. That’s amazies.

You can get all the deets & remind yourself on Facebook here and RSVP here for a chance to win an Alamo Drafthouse gift card from DO512!

See ya there little ponies!

BC’s 15 “Must-See” Artists at South By Southwest 2013


Much of the inner-Austin area will be shut down this weekend, overrun by industry execs from the film, music, and tech world. That is, essentially, what South by Southwest means to Austinites. It sounds miserable, I know, but at least we can mooch as much as possible from the festival by attending its many free shows, and quite a few of the showcases have amazing artists. Here’s a few  sets that are free and (fairly) easy to get into, and seriously can’t be missed.

FPSF 2013 Line-Up feat. The Stooges, Postal Service, Macklemore…


The initial Free Press Summer Fest 2013 line-up was announced today… and it’s fan-freakin-tastic.

Gotta give wicked credit to Houston for putting on an annual music fest with a consistently good line-up that DOESN’T include Paul Wall every year (not that I would complain).

My crew and I went last year and despite the intense heat (it’s in the first week of June), we were able to enjoy great sets from The Flaming Lips, Snoop Dogg (just before his “Snoop Lion” fiasco), Z-Ro Morris Day & the Time, Afrojack, Diplo, Wallpaper, Fitz & the Tantrums, among others.

Without further ado, here’s the 2013 Free Press Summer Fest line-up (and can I mention how AWESOME it is that Quad City DJs are performing?! Come on, ride the train, it’s the choochoo train, woo woo!!):
