There's a major party going on in Austin, Texas from March 17th - 22nd... and it's not SXSW. In fact, it's free.
Cashmere Cat, Classixx, Tommy Sunshine, Capital Cities, Talib Kweli, Miami Horror... These are just some of the names that hit up this unofficial SXSW party last year, and the party has 200 set times scheduled for this year. Major headliners are expected, though they won't be announced ahead of time.
The event is called Lose Control and will take place during SXSW at Krave. It's the 7th year of the event and there is no cover as long as you RSVP.
There's bound to be a lot of unofficial dance parties going down in Austin during SXSW, but there's no denying the historical weight, and financial freedom, of this one.
