SXSW 2018 has been great so far. The band picks for Thursday keeps getting harder to chose. For tonight we have listed two showcase options – one where you most likely must have a badge or wristband, and one where you can probably just pay cash at the door. Actually at most places it has been credit cards only – no cash accepted. The cash would be good for parking.

Just remember to be careful and make sure you have plenty of money for parking or download the Uber, Lyft or Ride Austin app if you are into ride sharing (Expect to pay a HUGE premium). Also, don’t forget about Pedi-Cabs, too. Biking is also a cool option as parking is limited and there is a lot of ground to cover. If you click on the band name it takes you to their bio and showcase info on the SXSW page. If you are not able to catch them tonight, more than likely your favorite band will be playing later in the week. Last night was crowded yet still didn’t feel like past years where you really couldn’t even walk down 6th street. The set up for this year so far is back to truly discovering indie music instead of the mass commercialized spectacle it was in years past.
