Fader Fort Re-Dux

So, they re-opened the guest list for the Fader Fort. I suggest, if you haven't done so already, that you RSVP before you do anything else!

I must confess, I'm pretty much biased to love the Fader Fort party because last year during the "Levi's 501 Happy Hour" I won a pretty easy trivia contest earning myself:

Free Levi's 'Lowers' (ie. pants, shorts, skirts etc.)

Free Levi's 'Uppers' (ie. denim meth, cotton crack, diet pills)

Free Ray Bans (<---This was the only thing chosen for me, the other stuff I got to like...pick out myself.)


Free Pumas

SXSW is the time of year when it's ok to take freely from corporate America. I know what you're saying, "Hey, hasn't Corporate America given us so much already this year?" Well dear reader, the answer is yes, yes they have but something tells me there's still going to be an a**load of free shhh at South By this year.

For the record the question was, "Who won the first 'Hip-Hop/Rap' Grammy?"

Here's some free videos from some of the artists you can expect to hear for about 30 minutes at the Fader Fort:

So, one of the bands featured on Friday Features: Taylor Hanson, James Iha, Adam Schlesinger, and Bun E. Carlos? Check out Tinted Window. I'm intrigued and am willing to withhold judgement, at least I think I am and I'm pretty sure I will. Something to keep in mind on Friday nonetheless.

Major Lazer is a collaboration project with DJ's Diplo and Switch. They are playing a Red Bull party, which you can RSVP to with an e-mail to, as well as the Fader Fort and I'm sure many others.

The answer to the aforementioned trivia contest was DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince.
