The Grizzly Life's Guide to a Free SXSW - 2010

The Grizzly Life's Guide to a Free SXSW

It's finally here! We did it last year and it was a big success, so we decided to make another Guide to a Free SXSW. With help from Showlist Austin, we have compiled the best of the best free shows from every single day at SXSW (and even the day before). If you follow our guide, there's no reason why you should have to pay to see most bands on your list and we don't think there's any reason to feel left out if you don't have a badge or a wristband. We stuck to the guide last year and saw just about every band playing SX that we cared for, so it's possible! Check back later in the week because there may be a revised version of the guide coming up as more shows emerge, but this is a pretty thorough version.

With this guide, you can see the following bands for free: Thee Oh Sees, The Fresh & Onlys, Zola Jesus, Warpaint, Toro y Moi, Andrew W.K., White Denim, Washed Out, Besnard Lakes, GZA, Neon Indian, Real Estate, A Sunny Day in Glasgow, Torche, Fucked Up, Japandroids, JEFF the Brotherhood, The xx, Thurston Moore, Sea Bear, Le Loup, Vivian Girls, The Soft Pack, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Dum Dum Girls, The Antlers, Bowerbirds, She & Him, Tyvek, The Beets, Shearwater, Surfer Blood, Titus Andronicus, Memory Tapes, Sleigh Bells, Local Natives, Ty Seagall, Born Ruffians, Dr. Dog, The Smith Westerns, Woods, Superchunk, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Best Coast, Javelin, and about a million more.

Also, add me on Facebook and I will have tons of recommendations for this year's festival. There will also be a poster post for those visual learners out there.
