[SKOA Presents] SXSW 2011 Or Bust!

We are counting down the hours until Shey, Rocko and I hop on our respective planes from our humble homes and hit the hip streets of Austin, TX for SXSW. While we are all n00bz to the pure mayhem and insanity that is SXSW, we think/hope we have appropriately prepped our livers, iCals, eardrums, etc. for the days ahead of us. Although it is hard to tell how our days in Austin will actually pan out, we have carefully combed through every party, panel and showcase and prepared the following agenda in case you care to follow along or even follow us around. Mind you, we all have a few bands here and there that aren't playing a specific party that we'll be checking out as well, but this is a pretty good idea of where to find us.

If you don't see something on our list that you think we should check out, please drop us a comment! 

Here we go!

[SKOA Presents] SXSW 2011 Axis of Audio Party

With a lovefest that could only have ignited courtesy of the internet, Some Kind of Awesome, Antiquiet, TwentyFourBit, Rock It Out! Blog and Consequence of Sound have joined forces under the moniker Axis of Audio with help from Knuckle Rumbler to throw an [unofficial] SXSW 2011 party of epically awesome proportions. 

That's right, friends! If you'll be in Austin and want to catch the big event, mark your calendars for Saturday, March 19th 2011 from 12pm - 8pm at The Rumbler Lounge, located at 402 E. 6th Street. This party has been in the works for quite awhile and we think our hard work has really paid off. 

We are jumping up and down in excitement to announce this ridiculously awesome lineup, which includes: 


A Place to Bury Strangers

Astronautalis + P.O.S. 

Ezra Furman & The Harpoons

Le Butcherettes

Jukebox The Ghost


The Gay Blades


Dirty Ghosts

The Silent Comedy

Sabrosa Purr

God-Des & She

In addition to all of these insanely great bands, we'll also be giving away two pairs of passes to San Bernardino, CA’s Paid Dues Festival, which features P.O.S. and the highly anticipated reunion of Black Star.

So if your head has finally stopped spinning, make sure you head over to and RSVP if you wanna go!
