Howler Guide to SXSW 2019

Posted on March 8, 2019

It is that time of year again.   The time everyone in Austin loves to hate and hates to love.  South by Southwest week is upon us.  That means LOTS AND LOTS of people in town, LOTS AND LOTS of parties and music of unknown origin and utility and LOTS AND LOTS of people walking our fair city acting like they own the place.  

Here at Howler, we welcome the masses with open arms.  Last year, we prepped a little guide to help you eat right and look cool while you are here.  This year, we invite you to come by Howler Brothers World Headquarters to get the inside skinny on Austin.  Our doors are wide open all day Monday through Friday 9AM - 7PM and Saturday and Sunday 9AM - 5PM.  We promise to have cold beer available - even at 9AM - and our guru on all things ATX available for consultation.  Just ask for Simon the Jester and use the code word “chesthair” and he will be at your service to make sure you don’t end up eating at that nationally known but locally doubted taco place or attend the wrong musical performances. 

Speaking of music, please go check out Howler Founders’ Andy Stepanian and Mason Brent and their band Leon III.   They have four shows in town for SXSW week.  Here’s the rundown.  Visit their Instagram @leonthethird for information on how to RSVP for these shows.  All are free with no wristband required.   

And, here’s our second annual SXSW playlist with some of our favorites who are hitting town this week.  Be good and stay hydrated.
