    Why did y'all close the RSVP so soon? I started looking for parties last week and it was already closed while pretty much all the rest were open. Is there any way to still get in, at least for the day party?

    Hello! My friend and I are not badge holders but the lineup Friday night is what we want to see more than anything this SXSW. We have both already RSVP'd but would like direction on how you are able to attend the Friday night show without a SXSW badge? Is there a way?

      No, you don't need a SXSW badge, but you may not be able to get into our evening showcases from 8:00pm - 2:00am as badge holders will be admitted first and we will most likely hit capacity very early. Try to get there early and good luck! -Katie

      Hey Will, you won't be able to attend the day shows without an RSVP, but you might be able to get into our evening showcases from 8:00pm - 2:00am as badge holders will be admitted first. Good luck! -Katie
