NBN Survives SXSW

Next BIG Nashville survived the SXSW gauntlet in 2009, hosting a SXSW Film party, an official SXSW Showcase and an Official Day Party over a span of 8 days (which in SXSW time is equal to 3.5 months). We started the week by helping throw a party for the film Make Out With Violence at the beautiful Belmont in downtown Austin on a gorgeous Sunday evening. We continued later in the week on Thu. evening with our Official SXSW Showcase at Maggie Mae's Gibson Room. The staff and volunteers were fantatstic and we had an incredible turnout the entire night. After about 2.34 hrs of sleep we ventured back to the belly of the beast for our day party with American Songwriter and Moontoast for an all day bender on Friday of Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka, biscuits with Loveless Cafe Jams and wall to wall music.

We want to thank all the folks who packed the place for our showcases as well as all the artists, managers, agents, volunteers, sound guys, bartenders et al who made it all such a gloriously madcap week.

And extra BIG Thanks to Mike Dickinson, Lizzy Newton, Jeff Kehoe, Dylan Ohm and everyone at SXSW and High Beam as well as the folks at Maggie Mae's Gibson Room, The Belmont and The Tap Room at Six Lounge for their hospitality and incredible attitudes.
