Austin area residents! It’s that time of year again. SXSW 2015 is just around the corner. SXSW Wristbands are usually reserved for Austinites, but each year, the festival releases a small number of wristband and hotel packages to those living outside of Austin. Wristbands generally range from $169-$189.

Rules regarding the wristbands…An individual can only purchase up to two wristbands. One wristband must be under the name of the cardholder; the second name must be that of the additional person attending SXSW. Name transfers are not an option for wristbands, and wristbands are non-refundable. Make sure the friend you are purchasing a wristband for can definitely make it out to the festival before securing the purchase.

Phantogram have been hard at work since they released their February 2014 full-length album, Voices. They paired with New York artist Joshua Davis for the release of the video as part of a “Napster Project”, wherein different musicians and artists collaborate to try and produce art that disrupts the music industry. This is the first time the duo have paired up in a real-time performance, where Joshua Davis coded a series of animations and graphics as the band performed. The result is an entrancing geometrical maze that meshes devilishly well with Phantograms electro-indie vibes. Take a couple of minutes to immerse yourself in all its trippy glory:
