2018 Official Showcase Presenter
Join us at The SHOWTIME House at Clive Bar on Rainey Street for a three day party to celebrate Original Series SMILF, THE CHI and SHAMELESS.
We’re kicking things off on Thursday by bringing Southie to South By in honor of SMILF. Don’t miss a kickass lineup of all-female bands, art installations by female Boston artists, a custom button making station and a special appearance by Golden Globe® nominee Frankie Shaw.
On Friday, catch the vibe at the Clive with performances by Chicago hip-hop artists, music featured in THE CHI and an epic DJ set by Darryl DMC McDaniels. Sample some South Side flavor with food from Harold’s Chicken Shack, a fresh sneaker gallery and a Chicago art wall.
Saturday is gonna be SHAMELESS. We’re recreating the Alibi Bar and throwing a SHAMELESS St. Gallagher’s Day Party not to be forgotten – or remembered if you’re Frank Gallagher. Join special guest bartenders Steve Howey (Kevin) and Shanola Hampton (V) for drinks, dancing and debauchery.
Throughout the festivities, we’ll have complimentary valet service for Austin B-Cycle riders. While you’re on Rainey Street, stop by the SHOWTIMESwag Shop and pick up some free merch, including exclusive goodies for current and new SHOWTIME subscribers.
