South By Southwest does music on a Texas-sized scale. Six-days of concerts take over downtown Austin and fill some of the city’s most legendary venues. The official SXSW event hosts thousands of musicians from big-name performers to bands on the rise across every genre imaginable. If you can’t afford to drop all of your money on a SXSW Music pass, that doesn’t mean you have to stay home. SXSW week is packed with unofficial events. Some unofficial showcases will only cost you a few dollars, while others are free with an RSVP. Unofficial SXSW favorites include Pandora Discovery Den and Spotify House. Bonus: free events usually include free food and drinks, too.
