It’s springtime again, which only means one thing in Austin, Texas: Indie devotees from around the country come and worship at the ephemeral mecca of rock that is the South by Southwest Festival. In the midst of the four-dayextravaganza, Spin is sponsoring an afternoon of unforgettable music including hot new acts the Hold Steady, Louis XIV, the Futureheads, Bloc Party, and perennialfavorites the New York Dolls. It is a private party, though, so you’ll have to make the list to get in the door. Stay tuned for exclusive coverage of other SXSW 2005 events!
