Lots of free parties all day and night. If it's an official showcase you want to get into, just get there early, they always sell single tickets at the door. I've seen Devo, Belle & Sebastian and Mogwai (all on the same bill with New Pornographers (!)), Flogging Molly and mc chris for a mere cover charge in recent years. Also, do a search for MessWithTexas Party. Some friends of the FFF people join forces with FFF and they've brought kick ass stuff like NOFX, Breeders, Monotonix, GWAR, Dead Milkmen and OFWGKTA to sx every spring. Cheers!
