SPIN Magazine is throwing it's annual SXSW Bash at Stubb's on Friday, March 20th (noon - 6:30pm) and damn it's a good one! Headlining will be none other than Echo & the Bunnymen. Also on the bill: Hot Leg (former frontman of the Darkness, Justin Hawkins's new band), Black Lips, Glasvegas, Passion Pit, and Cut Off Your Hands. The party will also feature some DJ sets from the Crystal Method and N.A.S.A. Wow, SPIN definitely knows how to throw a party!
We got to go to the SPIN bash back in 2006 (Thanks again Janelle!). It was so awesome to see We Are Scientists right in front of the stage and before they blew up. There was free BBQ, free whiskey, and best of all, we got to meet the band as well.
For the first time ever, SPIN will be giving away loads of passes to the invite-only event. Stay tuned to SPIN.com in the coming weeks for details, and for loads of SXSW preview coverage.
