Hype Hotel is back for 2013 but with some major changes. Hype Hotel is at a new location: The Whitley (3rd and San Jacinto), and most importantly their night parties are now official parties. That means unlike years past, you will not be able to get into their night events without a badge or wristband (and I am guessing they will reach capacity). But they still have day parties open to those who RSVP starting March 13 through the 16th. This is one of the few events where your RSVP is actually required, so make sure you RSVP. There were some issues with RSVP yesterday but it seems like they have sorted everything out. Full Schedule and Lineups haven’t been annouced, but you can RSVP now, and we will update you when a full schedule is up.

Day Party Hosts  (11am -6pm):
March 13: Gorilla vs. Bear/Yourstu.ly
March 14: I Guess I’m Floating/YVYNYL
March 15: Stereogum
March 16: PORTALS

Also they are looking for volunteers so if you live in Austin and want to help out go HERE



Another Filter party of course! For this party on March 15 they have teamed up with Tumblr and GAP. The day portion, which is open to the public, has a great lineup. So RSVP HERE and check it out! I think every Filter party is going to be packed so plan to get to any party they host early or don’t plan on going at all.
