While SPIN has a busy week ahead at this year's South by Southwest, with tons of interviews, online coverage, and three massive events to pull off, we wanted to take a moment to thank our sponsors for making it all possible.
Friday, March 20 brings the 7th annual SPIN bash at Stubb's BBQ, sponsored by MySpace Music, Flip, Best Buy Musical Instruments,VTech , Oakley, Havaianas, UV Vodka, CK one, and SESAC. The event will also feature the Garnier "Rock Your Style" lounge.
Echo & the Bunnymen, Justin Hawkins, and Black Lips are set to headline a blowout party that will also include performances from Glasvegas, Passion Pit, Cut off Your Hands, Burke, and Hatcham Social. Kelley James will MC.
Meanwhile, at the SPIN/MySpace Music Loft on 6th, powered by Flip, bands will stop by for interviews and acoustic performances. Each day of SXSW, SPIN will post video, photos, and commentary from the Loft to the Flip MySpace page, SPIN MySpace page and SPIN.com. Gifting partners for the loft -- located in the upstairs loft at the Old Pecan Street Café -- include Airwalk, Hilfiger Denim, and Oakley. Drinks will be provided by UV Vodka, and catering by Wahoo's.
Finally, there's the SPIN/American Spirit official SXSW closing party! The line up features Late of the Pier, ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead, and Superdrag. The closing party happens this Saturday, March 21 at Smokin' Music.
