Oh, Hey — They’re Gonna Have Free Booze!

Alright, that was a cheap shot, but we had to get your attention. SXSW officially kicks off this week, and nothing is more satisfying than witnessing the buzz bands of tomorrow, today. And it won’t hurt to do it after you scored some free hooch, courtesy of a lengthy list of sponsors that we will spare you here (but keeping reading if you really wanna know). But perhaps the real allure is derived from the official SXSW parties, after parties, and AFTER AFTER parties, featuring your favorite bands, free swag, and/or public nudity (if you’re so lucky). This week we did all the legwork to find the best in festival day ragers (many of them free!), so all you gotta do is show and and try not to get arrested. Stay tuned all this week for updates!

Let’s kick it off with the Brooklyn Vegan & M for Montreal Party. Vegans, fake vegans, and carnivores will unite for an impressive music line-up and conscious eats. Oh, and free vodka.

Kanye West: Portrait of Power

Incase you missed this earlier today (what, are you not following Kanye’s tweets?), get on it. Get your mind blown. Kanye insists it’s not a music video, but a moving painting, and you know what? He’s right.

(Real) Superhero Hype

If you haven’t heard already, Edward Norton will not reprise his role as Bruce Banner in the forthcoming Avengers flick slated for May 2012. Joaquin Phoenix is rumored to hulk-out in Norton’s place, that is, if he decides to come out of retirement after a successful go at a rap career. Le sigh. These genetically altered man-monsters are so fickle. We obtained a copy of Norton’s reaction to the snub from the actor’s Facebook page:
