That’s right; we’re heading back to Austin, TX during South by Southwest, the effortlessly cool film, interactive, and music festival, for a wild weekend of games, BBQ, celebrity interviews, and much, much more! Along with our pals at Geek & Sundry and Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls, we’re taking over Banger’s Sausage House and Beer Garden for a Texas-style Saloon, and we want to see you there! The event is free to the public and you don’t even need a badge to enter.
From Friday, March 11 through Sunday, March 13, we’ll have a veritable smorgasbord of events (and sausages) for you to check out. First off, we’ll once again be bringing a ton of celebrities, musicians, and comedians by our stage to chat with our illustrious hosts: Jessica Chobot, Dan Casey, and Malik Forte! Make sure you check out the full schedule below to find out when you can see Jake Gyllenhaal, Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany, Gillian Jacobs, Eastbound and Down‘s Danny McBride, Key and Peele‘s Keegan Michael-Key, the casts of Silicon Valley, Outcast, and Preacher, and more.
But that’s not all! In our space at Banger’s, we’ll have an interactive first look at The CW’s new series from The Vampire Diaries EP Julie Plec, Containment. Explore the seemingly harmless medical center by day, dare to enter its terrifying outbreak ground zero by night. If spooky stuff’s not your bag, you can play with our Powerpuff Girls photo booth and cotton candy bar, check out a live taping of Geek & Sundry’s “Super Fun Awesome Party Game Time” featuring surprise (!) guests, AND get a sneak peek at Funimation’s new anime streaming service. We’ll also have giveaways every day, merch available for purchase, and food and drink specials to boot. Cowboy boot.
