BLURT Heads to Austin March 14-17

 

It’s the most magical
time of the year, natch…

 

By Blurt Staff

 

Blurt Magazine will of course once again be front and center
and attending the SXSW Music Festival in Austin Texas, from March 14-17,
2012.  Our editors and writers will be running around town during the week
to keep you informed of all things happening in Austin during the week.

 

We are extremely excited to announce our annual Day Party
along with our partner, Dogfish Head.  This year’s lineup is completely
insane, we are extremely excited to have all of these bands participating and
expect this to be the best year ever. We cannot stress enough the important of
getting to the venue early, as last year we had a line out the door for over an
hour all day long.  It will be difficult to get in so if you push it and
come too soon to your favorite bands performance we cannot guarantee entry.
