SXSW 2009 Parties, Part 1

Soooo many Austin blogs and websites are posting SXSW parties with far more thoroughness and frequency than I am. If you're planning your SXSW show party schedule, I recommend checking out Austin Is Burning, The Famousish, Done Waiting, Austinist, Trash Can Age, and Do512 (der). This Is Life In Austin posted a really cool list of swag and food parties, if that's more your thing.

Me? I'll be posting on magazine parties, starting on Saturday. For now, here is just a teensy smattering of music parties. I'm including the ones I plan to attend:

wednesday, march 18.

thursday, march 19.

saturday, march 21.

Edited to add:
I almost forgot: D0512's huge day party.

Trying to decide what to do during SXSW is soooo overwhelming! But, I love how not matter what you do or where you go you're hearing music blaring.
