Show Pics: Best of Day Parties @ SxSW 2012

SxSW 2012 will not go away. It refuses to be ignored. It boils rabbits (that is a movie reference before anyone gets mad at SxSW).

I have a mess of pics from the day parties. This is a hot mess. I am still doing forensics on who and where based on when.

Lamebook Legal Fundraiser @ Shangri-La (1/21)

Date 1/21/11
Location Shangri-La
Doors 7pm
Tickets $5 Suggested Donation @ Door

Those familiar with Lamebook and their current legal fight with Zuckerberg inc. are aware that the creators behind the parody site are in dire need of funding for legal services.  I hear it’s pretty expensive to get sued by a billion dollar corporation… but what do I know?  To help support this hilarious website, head out to Shangri-La tonight for a fundraiser benefiting the massive legal fees currently being incurred by Lamebook.  Your entertainment for the evening is provided by local pop star Neiliyo and the Learning Secrets DJs.  You can also expect a photo booth by Annie Ray and one free keg of beer tapped every hour between 7pm-12.  Get out there tonight guys and do as Lamebook founders Jonathan Standefer and Matthew Genitempo tell us, “fight for the right to make fun of whomever we damn well please.”  I can get behind that.
