Next week, I’ll be heading to Austin, Texas, for SXSW. I’ve attended a few times in the past and am excited to return to ATX for the event. This year, however, is special: As part of the music portion of the festival, I’ll be speaking on my own panel about “Getting the Most Bang for Your Touring Buck” on March 16 at the Austin Convention Center.

In addition to my talk (you’ll need a SXSW pass to attend), I’ll also be hosting a TPG happy hour and meet & greet event with fans in Austin. The happy hour will be from 5:30pm-7pm on Tuesday, March 15, and we’ll be enjoying cocktails, appetizers and running some exciting giveaways. Visit our Facebook page or enter the giveaway below.
