If you’ve ever seen the movie Nick & Norah’s Infamous Playlist you could possibly have an idea of what I’m referring to when I say “Where’s Fluffy?” If you have no idea what the hell I am possibly talking about here’s a short movie synopsis: The band Fluffy (or maybe the band’s name is Where’s Fluffy?- either or, doesn’t matter…) The band plays “secret shows” and throughout the whole movie everyone tries to find them via clues, and going to different venues just to find out the band will be playing somewhere else…maybe you can see where I’m going with this…
To me, this is South By…making sure you are following every sort of social media and every sort of person that may have some insider information on Where Fluffy is playing…or in this present case, Prince?
For those who like a tight and set schedule, you may find the abundance that is South By no less than overwhelming. Going into this adventure I’ve done my share of Twitter follows, website show rundowns and my own sickening OCD-esq spread sheets (sorted by days, times, bands, alphabetized- yeah it’s gross). With the festival already well underway, I can assume many have already done their own research, follows, etc. BUT just incase you’re last minute, sitting up in the air, on your flight to Austin, using the slow as ever hell internet (if you can’t catch my drift this is where this blog and my internet frustration is coming from) I’m jotting down my Go-To list of Twitter accounts to follow and in this 11th hour, one of the best party schedule websites I’ve found.
The Website That has gotten most use during this time of last minute planning:
SEE YOU IN AUSTIN!
