The second round of wristbands for the South by Southwest Music Festival goes on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. at wristbands.sxsw.com. They’ll sell for $189, up $20 from the first batch that went on sale Jan. 16 and sold out on the first day. Only Austin residents are eligible; a credit card with an Austin billing zip code is required. (A list of qualifying zip codes is on the website linked above.) SXSW Music is March 11-16.
Also providing more supply to meet high demand is ACL Live, which just added a third night of shows by The National on April 23. (The April 21 show sold out quickly; a limited number of tickets are still available for April 22.) Warpaint opens all three shows. Tickets, $40-$50, go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday via acl-live.com and 877-435-9849.
