With SXSW underway already and the music part of the festival less than a week away it's easy to forget there is still a TON of other stuff going on between today and Wednesday. So much so, in fact, that I have pretty much given up on the idea of telling you about all the cool shhh you could do. I'll tell you about some stuff, don't worry, but you're pretty much on your own to comb through ShowListAustin and Do512 when next week rolls around.

ANYWAY, back to Psych Fest...
Tickets for Psych Fest are still available, but only at the door...so disregard that link :-). I didn't go last year but I know this year has a lot of the same "Psychedelic(Drony)" artists. So you should probably be on drugs if you truly want to have a good time. Sorry Straight-Edge kids, but seriously what are you doing at Psych Fest anyway?
Just for the record I'm totally lifting the listing for this fest directly from ShowListAustin, hence the Blockquoting/alt format.
