SXSW opening parties
Despite the Vancouver-esque weather here in Austin, many SXSW attendees managed to brave the winds and strong rains last night to attend the various happy hours and opening parties. We managed to attend 6 out of the 10 events we had scheduled. Some were hits, and the others were complete misses. Here are some photos from the coolest ones.
OnStar SXSW party hosted by TechSet had delicious food and an open bar for VIP guests.
Indeed, Austin might very well be the live music capital of the world, with live music blaring from almost every venue.
