SXSW: wristband&badgeless

This is an unofficial guide to SXSW for people who don't have a wristband/badge. I'm going to be wristband/badgeless in Austin with a friend to join in on the fun that SXSW brings in. So I have no idea if I get to see even half of what is on my tentative schedule. This is my first year of SXSW and I just want to see what it's like and hopefully hear some good music.

Before reading this exciting yet crammed list, you must realize there is no reason why someone should stay at one party all day unless that is if you want to! For me other than the very first day, the other three days are full of events that will conflict each other. So this means a lot of walking/running/speed-walking...

I bolded the bands that I want to see at the event. I also put the better known songs by the band/artist up for download, they'll only be available for 7 days. Also a lot of bands/artists are playing multiple events, so sometimes that frees up your time and you can plug in another event with the extra space.

Also, if you have a gmail account there is a neat calendar feature they have! So when you see something you would like to attend go ahead and start adding events to your gmail calendar or just write this down the old fashioned way with a pen and paper. Hopefully I'll have enough energy/time to post everyday for these four exciting days! Let's see how this goes...
