FILTER Magazine and Ploom present “The Media Lounge” SXSW 2014 Day Parties Announced

March 6th, 2014
Comments Off

Ploom and FILTER Magazine would like to celebrate the grand opening of the Container Bar with the Media Lounge! I honestly have no idea how this party will be since this is the first year for TML. With lounge in the name, I like to believe it will be relatively chill, but then again they have LA hip hop group, People Under the Stairs, and some reputable DJs like Giraffage and Goldroom so it might be crazy. You be the judge. Get the full lineup after the break.

Wunderbar presents German Bands on Board SXSW 2014 Day Party Announced

March 5th, 2014
Comments Off

Normally I never go on a boat at SXSW. You’re stuck out there, and if something crazy is going on, well you can’t leave. But this event actually sounds quite appetizing to me. It features some German bands that you might not have heard of, but you will love them. The bill includes Mighty Oaks, who sound similar to a cross between Mumford and Okkervil River, Roosevelt, who’s hit single Elliot has been buzzing on the blogs, and Claire, a new wave German pop band filled with electronica. Take a listen to them because I guarantee you’ll like at least one… and there is a fully stocked bar on the boat. With beer… and wine. Yeah wine. We’re classy now. Get the rest of the details after the jump.
