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 at the Ginger Man pub 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 arrive late to enter in time for your favorite band’s performance we cannot guarantee entry.





Here is the schedule
for our Day Party:
