SXSW Tonight!

Blaggards are the only “Celtic” performers among over 1,500 acts appearing in this year’s South by Southwest Music Festival.

Our showcase slot starts 12:45am Thursday night on Fadó’s patio stage.

If you do not have a SXSW wristband, you may be able to pay a cover at the door:

Single admission tickets are sold at the door of the venue the night of the showcase. Single admission tickets can range anywhere from $5-$65. Tickets will be sold third in priority only if capacity allows. (Badges have first priority and wristbands have second priority.) There’s no way to know in advance if tickets will be sold or how much they will be sold for since it depends on attendance. Due to popularity, some shows may end up being badges-only.

Your best chance for any showcase you want to attend with a single admission ticket is to show up early and stay in the venue the entire night. If you’re patient and flexible, you’ll have a great time.

It should also be noted that Austin is now a smoke-free city and in-and-out privileges are not always possible due to capacity requirements. So it may not be possible to get back into the venue after taking a smoke break.
