Win passes to our SPIN@Stubbs showcase in Austin, TX, on Friday, March 18, by first checking out our 35 Must-Hear Acts at SXSW gallery.

Here's how to win:

1. Follow SPIN on Foursquare

2. Go see one band from our 35 Must-Hear Acts preview. Don't forget to check in to Foursquare when you're there.

You can also add bands to your Foursquare "To Do" list, directly from our preview.

3. This will unlock the SPINsider badge.

4. Be one of the first 5 people each day on 3/17 and 3/18 to present the SPINsider badge at the SPIN Oxygen Lounge on 313 1/2 East 6th Street, from 12 - 6pm.

To make it even easier, we can send you reminders when these 35 Bands are about to take the stage. Just set up a group with you and your SXSW friends on GroupMe, and opt in for reminders. We'll even pick one group at random and give you and your whole crew SPIN@Stubb's passes with VIP upgrades! Let SPIN's Editors be your guide to the best of SXSW.
