Mess With Texas: Black Lips + More


Happening Sat. March
21 at SXSW.



By Blurt Staff




Among the Lone Star state traditions – strong weed, cheap
beer, concealed firearms, underage hookers, etc. – none is more sacred than
South By Southwest, and among the most recent SXSW traditions, the annual Mess
With Texas bash is one of the most notorious. This year’s MWT, the third one, is
slated for Saturday, March 21, at the sprawling Waterloo Park.
Showtimes run 11:30 until 9 p.m.


How do the names Black Lips, Circle Jerks, Thermals, King
Khan, Vivian Girls and Crystal Antlers sound to you? Full lineup is below.


As always, it’s free, and open to the public, which means
you don’t necessarily have to be a SXSW badgeholder to attend. Hey, in today’s
economic climate, that’s a goddam bargain! And what’s this we hear about a
contest? Read on – deadline is this coming Monday, so get hopping….

Each year the organizers for Mess With Texas put on a contest for the fans. The
goal is to make the contest a little more exciting than submitting your email
address to a website with hopes that you’ll get a response that says you won
something. The plan this year is… POSTCARDS. Send us a postcard. It will cost
you 42 cents.

Send your postcards to:

PO BOX 1558
Torrance, CA

The person that sends what we consider the best  postcard will win $150
cash, all access passes to Mess With Texas, tons of swag from Incase and if you
are 21 or older enough drink tickets to get you and your friends dizzy.

The postcard can be of ANYTHING. Be creative. Try to make us fall over with
laughter. Try to make us say “cuuuuutttteee”, try to make us say
“amazing!”…. It can be anything. For real. And you can submit as
many as you like. Just remember to write your email address on the postcard so
we can get in touch with you.

All postcards must be received by Monday, March 16th. On Tuesday, March 17th we
will be posting the winning postcard along with the runner ups on the Incase
blog and this website:
