Welcome to SXSW 2013
The South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Conferences & Festivals (March 8-17, 2013) offer the unique convergence of
original music, independent films, and emerging technologies. Fostering creative and professional growth
alike, SXSW® is the premier destination for discovery.
Learn about all things South by Southwest by reading our in-house magazine SXSWorld. Featuring lots of photos, stories, in-depth post-event coverage–plus a great cover photo of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds–the May 2013 issue is now available online for free! This May 2013 issue also includes an extensive writeup on Tony Hsieh, the best-selling author who is now leading the Downtown Project. Hear more insights about community-building and customer service from this brilliant visionary on Monday, August 12 when he delivers the Opening Keynote at the first-ever SXSWV2V in Las Vegas.
SXSW Eco's PanelPicker is open for voting! From corporations using biomimicry to better their products to saving forests with paper, the sessions submitted for 2013 are as diverse and exciting as the event itself. Our staff has been hard at work developing new and improved events for this year's conference including:
GIMME THE LOOT Narrative Competition, 2012
Jonathan Demme presents this feature debut from writer/director Adam Leon. Love and the price of infamy play out as a group of friends run the streets of New York hoping to become the biggest writers in the city. Gimme the Loot won the Grand Jury Prize at last year's fest so this is some quality celluloid, y'all. Out now (Austin)

According to Shinyribs’ website, Kevin Russell, also frontman of The Gourds, started Shinyribs “to stretch out as a performer and band leader.” Russell’s solo project has come a long way since it formed in 2008. He just released his second full-length album under the name Shinyribs, Gulf Coast Museum, this past April 16. KUT states that the album is a tour through Russell’s “unique universe, featuring folk ballads, soul struts” and more. Shinyribs is currently on tour in the US and will be performing at the Austin City Limits Music Festival this fall.
