The City of Austin Center for Events (ACE) released a list of all permit requests put in for parties during the ten days of the South by Southwest Conference and Festival. This takes some of the guesswork out of SXSW party speculation, although it’s worth noting, events programmed in venues that hold music and events year round do not need special permits.
A few things worth noting on a quick perusal of the list:Pandora has an event set for 710-718 Red River St, 710 is Hoboken Pizza and 718 is Valhalla, could this be a block party on the street?Hype Hotel will return to Fair Market this year.Anheuser Busch- Parking Lot will take place at Brazos Hall. The SXSW schedule lists a series of Bud Light Factory events at the venue.There’s a Sony PCL Future lab planned at a parking lot near the Convention Center.HBO’s Game of Thrones will be back this year. The event will take place at Antone’s. No word yet if Snoop Dogg will attend this year.McDonalds has an activation at the downtown club Textile.A series of Samsung events and a Capital Live Entertainment event were denied because they came in after the cutoff, although they were submitted on Feb. 5, the original deadline the city advertised. There will be private dinner cocktail parties at “Justine’s Secret House” on East Seventh Street and most likely none of us are invited.
