The South by Southwest Music Festival placed a limited number of advance tickets on sale to the public for two official showcases taking place at the Paramount Theater. Tickets are available for the Sunset Sessions showcase featuring Melissa Etheridge on Thursday, March 13 and to the Lou Reed tribute show on Friday, March 14. Tickets are available online for $45 for Etheridge and $30 for the Lou Reed tribute.
SXSW notes that these advanced tickets do not guarantee admission.
From the website:
"Advance ticket purchases do not guarantee reserved seating or entry to the theatre. Advance ticket holders are advised to arrive to the theatre at least 30 minutes prior to the showcase time. In the unlikely event that a showcase reaches capacity before an advance ticket purchaser can be admitted to the theatre, the purchase price will be refunded at the Paramount Box Office (refund valid only within 20 minutes of screening start time).
