SXSW: Where's the party at?

Here in Austin we're getting ready for THE annual conference/festival/party known as SXSW. Being the music lovin', soiree seekin', iPhone tappin' brood that Austin yelpers are, we thought we'd honor the week-long festivities with a few little gems of our own.

More than 200 parties
...
Next week's list of events in Austin keeps growing and they're all listed on our Yelp Events page. We've got everything from the neighborhood bacon takedown to free drinks at the mashbash, and even the Gibson guitar giveaways at the IFC Crossroads House. And wouldn't you know it? More events are added by the minute. Decisions. Decisions.

Our nerds put the party in your pants!
Some of our engineers are headed to SXSW and they wanted an easy way to view all parties/events in Austin on their iPhones, so they went out and built one. Download our app for the iPhone and you'll find a link to Yelp's SXSW party guide from the home page. Not in Austin? Point your iPhone browser (Safari) to yelp.com/events/sxsw. OK enough gawking - now put that back in your pocket.
