If you are into music, chances are you have probably heard of SXSW. It is a glorious time of year when the music industry descends upon Austin. For older artists, it is a great way to connect with younger, festival-going generations, labels, and your fellow artists.

Over the years, the SXSW has drastically affected countless acts, making it a music-industry-mecca, of sorts.
Check back this week for a post of video highlights and to see interviews with artists, including Phantogram, Miami Horror, Mas Ysa, Royal Canoe, Milagres, Classixx, Speak, UME, and many more.

Local event organizer B.U.M.P. will be throwing an end of the summer dance party to blowoff steam before students get back to the daily grind.
The party is themed simply to “Express Yourself” (cue Charles Wright). Take that for what it’s worth and show up in your own skin, spandex suit, 3-piece suit, or full on candy gear.
The show will be rocking at The Phoenix (formerly Rogue) 17 August, located at 402 W. Dickson St. It starts at 9 pm and runs into the morning till 2 am.
The show will feature local production duo, appropriately named, thaDUEL, and they will be accompanied by DJs Dirk Digital and DJ DUBz
