Hot Freaks!: Blogger-Curated SXSW Party

Three years ago, I didn’t know what South By Southwest was. One year ago, I thought I’d never be able to go. This year, not only am I attending, but I’m going to be helping to throw a two day party at two venues, with over 30 bands.

Hot Freaks! is the collaboration between six bloggers and a handful of Austinites. We hand-picked 30 of our favorite bands to play at the Mohawk and Club deVille on the Friday and Saturday of SXSW.
