SXSW 2010: Donnybrook Declares The Must-Attend Parties
Obviously, you’re reading this because you want to know where Donnybrook will be during the marathon of music in Austin this week known as SXSW. This is understandable because SXSW can be daunting, especially for noobs. There is no way you should expect to see everything you set out to see. Sure, that can be said about any music festival, but I would say at SXSW you might see 25% of everything you attempted to see. You know what? That’s OK in Austin, because what you will discover is that the best part many times comes from the unexpected events you find yourself at.
However, you may want a starting point. A good place to start would be any of these Donnybrook attended parties. With out further ado, I present the (abridged) list of must-attend parties of SXSW 2010 (in chronological order).
