Notice how careful I was not to use the trademarked brand-name, S—- By S——–? That’s because the several of the events below require neither a badge nor a wristband to attend. We’ve helpfully pointed out the exceptions, however. As always, we’re thrilled to bits to taking part, even in the tiniest of ways, in this great annual rock biz circle jerk (that sometimes features former members of the Circle Jerks) and on behalf of my fellow Austin residents, I’d like to welcome you to America’s
most self-satisfied Live Music Parking Lot Capitol.
This doesn’t mean, however, you can come over to my house.
