Taylor Guitars will be attending the music portion of the SXSW Music Festival from March 14-17, 2012 and if you’ll be in the Austin, TX area, we’d love to see you. We’ll be at the Music Gear Expo in the Austin Convention Center, Exhibit Hall 5. The Expo is open to the public this year, so you don’t need a wrist band or music badge to drop by our booth and play some guitars. Our artist friends The Silent Comedy, The Material, and singer-songwriter Daria Musk will be stopping by to say hello. Daria will also host a fun Google hangout concert on Wednesday (time TBD).
Daily Drawing for Free Taylor GS Mini Guitar
Each day from Wednesday through Saturday, we’ll hold a drawing at our booth for a GS Mini guitar. Friends of Taylor are encouraged to stop by and register daily for each drawing. (Winner need not be present at time of drawing to win.)
Free Google Schemer Concert with Daria Musk
On Sunday, March 11 at 3 p.m., Daria Musk is playing a special SXSW concert in Austin, Texas presented by Schemer. It's inside the übercool Google Village. Normally you'd need a SXSW badge to get in, but Daria told Schemer how very important you are. So you get to be VIPs and get in for free. No badge? No problem. Enjoy the free show at SXSW by Daria!
