Party By Southwest

There are plenty of great places you can look to for information on SXSW 2010, namely the Austinist, Do512, Showlist Austin, The Peen Scene and Ultra8201, but I needed to put this list together in an attempt to keep it straight in my own head.

Obviously for me there will be great preference given to the Covert Curiosity-affiliated parties (a couple of announcements coming soon) and the big Do512 party, but I'm including a ton of other parties that look cool too.

I still haven't broken down the official showcase schedule yet... but here is a look at some of the more interesting non-official stuff that will be going on in Austin during SXSW 2010. I'll just update this post as more events become announced. I'm looking at you, Fader Fort.
