Badge holders will have the best view down at Auditorium Shores thanks to the Monster Energy viewing deck located within the Registrants Glen. Throughout all three nights of free concerts on Town Lake, badge holders can show their credentials to gain entry into the Registrants Glen where they will receive complimentary Monster Energy, Pepsi and Miller Lite, as well as access to the two-story Monster Energy viewing deck, from which the stage can easily be seen above the masses. Furthermore, the Austin skyline provides an incredible backdrop to the stage, where some of the biggest acts of SXSW 2013 are performing.
It’s hard to describe a band like Ozomatli. Ska, funk, hip-hop, or reggae? Ozomatli is some crazy hybrid of those genres. The band moves from Eastern European tones into Latin grooves seamlessly. The lyrics are bilingual and socially conscious. A great band to jam to on those hot summer days. Stop by the SXSWfm Radio Day Stage on Saturday, March 16, to see Ozomatli and more SXSW Showcasing Artists.
For the eight startups participating in the third annual SXSW Music Accelerator yesterday, describing how their companies help musicians find that sweet spot between connecting to their existing and potential fans and the reality to make money could have been a harrowing experience. Fortunately for the spokespeople pitching a panel of judges and co-emcees Brad King and Evan Lowenstein, their responses showed a genuine desire to ensure artists' success in the rapidly evolving music industry.
