#SXSW 2014: Thursday Top Picks + RSVPs

After a Wednesday packed with amazing music, here are my picks for Thursday of SXSW, starting with the Billy Reid Shindig, which is always one of the best SXSW day parties to attend for a couple of reasons. First, the Shindig’s style of music includes a number of Southern rockers, indie-folk bands and outstanding singer-songwriters, which basically make for your perfect daytime music. This year’s lineup includes past SXSW favorites such as Apache Relay, Kurt Vile, and Spanish Gold. Second, thanks to said musicians, the atmosphere is laidback and relaxed. And finally, this year’s day parties will be held at one of my favorite local watering holes, Weather Up. Check out the lineup below and RSVP for the Shindig here!

Thursday, March 13
11:30 – 11:50: Matrimony
12:00 – 12:30: The Felice Brothers
12:50 – 1:20 Shakey Graves
1:40 – 2:10 The Apache Relay
2:30 – 3:00 Kurt Vile
3:20 – 4:00 Billy Joe Shaver
4:20 – 5:00 Spanish Gold
5:20 – 6:05 Robert Ellis
6:25 – 7:15 St. Paul & The Broken Bones

But that’s not all…here are a few more party pics for Thursday!

KGSR at the W at 6AM 

Kick off the morning with top SXSW bands like The Hold Steady, Phantogram, and The Mowgli’s with KGRS at the W.

KUTX Live at the Four Seasons at 7AM 

Or, sleep in a extra few minutes and head over the Four Seasons to catch Phox and Austin’s own Bright Light Social Hour.

 As for your afternoon, head over to the aforementioned Shindig for a relaxed afternoon at Weather Up or try out one of these shows:

IHEARTCOMIX Austin Party Weekend at Empire Control Room & Garage at 12PM

A killer lineup that includes CLAIRE, Gangs of Youth, and The Ceremonies, this is a very close second to the Shindig for my top pick. Might be tied for first.

Paste at Swan Dive beginning at 11:30AM

Paste’s Thursday lineup includes favorites such as Gardens & Villas, Yellow Ostrich and Ages&Ages.

Wind-Up Records at LA Barbecue at 12PM 

In addition to some of Austin’s best BBQ, the Wind-Up Records Day Party has a range of great bands like the Griswold’s, Little Daylight, blondfire, and the French Horn Rebellion.

The Spotify House (901 East 6th Street) at 12PM 

How could I not plug the music app that saves my workday 5 days a week? The Spotify House is always a relaxing, music filled afternoon, and Thursday will be no different with music from the likes of Warpaint and Glass Animals.

South by San Jose at the San Jose Hotel is one of the best day parties every SXSW, and requires no RSVP to get in. Loving this lineup of acts such as Spanish Gold, Benjamin Booker, and top pick Reuben and the Dark.

101X Live Broadcast at Buffalo Billiards beginning at 1PM

Now that the word is out about these streaming sessions, it may be tough to grab a seat, but bands like Cherub, Joywave, and Royal Blood are worth it.

And finally, warm up for Thursday with list playlist of bands to catch!
