Tonight’s the night we’ve been looking forward to since our last birthday. No, not Pi Day…GSD&M + Google present: The Industry Party. We have music from The Mother Truckers, J. Roddy Walston and the Business and Lance Herbstrong. Plus, we’ve transformed our lobby into an art gallery featuring work from Magda Sayeg, Hugh MacLeod, Roadhouse Relics and many more Austin greats.
Beyond all the music and art, we’re featuring an interactive map put together by the GSD&M crew, Google and Obscura Digital. Attendees can come check out the “Best Ever’s” we featured in Austin using Google Hot Pot. You can get a sneak peek at our list here.
But before while the rest of us have been getting all gussied up for the party, our SXSurrogates have been reporting from the convention center. Check out a few of their posts:
