SXSW 2013

So, I missed most of SXSW last year. This year will be different. Here’s my yearly tentative list, which is really more of a roulette wheel. All of the shows listed here are free; some are 18+, some are 21+, and some offer free beer and/or food. If you happen to have any information I’m missing regarding scheduling, please let me know!
