Illegal Pete's will host a South by Southwest kickoff party Saturday, March 8th at 6pm.

It's an opportunity for Colorado artists, as well as general public, to connect and collaborate on their trips to SXSW. Veterans of the festival are encouraged to give advice for the ABC's of SXSW: booking official and unoffical shows, finding cheap lodging, as well as finding cheap or free food. 

Each band member and professional headed to the festival (and who has also RSVP'd to the event) will recieve a few drinks courtesy of Deep Eddy Vodka, Dulce Vida Tequila, and Upslope brewery. 

The soundtrack for the night will be suggested by the bands playing SXSW, so swing by on Saturday for some fantastic music, food, and local beverages!
