Rocksmith and Status are crashing into Austin, Texas this week for SXSW 2013 with their official showcase featuring Trae Tha Truth, Fredo Santana, Lil Reese, Mystikal, Sir Michael Rocks, YG, Killa Kyleon, Doughbeezy, Jarren Benton, Nakim, Jigg, Roosh Williams, GO DJ JB, and surprise guests.
The Rocksmith & Status SXSW 2013 official showcase takes place at The Main (at 603 Red River St.) on Friday, March 15 from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Second verse, same as the first. A little bit louder, a little bit worse.
The 2013 edition of the Dopehouse kicks off next Friday, March 15th, and will once again be a place where you can get hammered and drunkenly sing along to “No Hands” and other (probably ignorant and quite possibly detrimental to society-laden) tunes while some random-ass chick you just met at one of those free showcases earlier in the week grinds feverishly on your pelvis… except this time it will be in the middle of the day, in a much larger (read: much larger) venue and with more special guests, with a couple of performances thrown into the mix to boot. Why throw a party in the middle of the day? Why not?
Keep it real: those that attend SXSW know that by Friday you’re slowly starting to get burned out on constantly fighting in line trying to get into a showcase, only to get in and be flanked by people who look like they haven’t showered in days constantly stepping on your shoes and screaming in your ear, while people who actually haven’t showered in days frenetically wave their arms and funk in the air at the “aspiring” (read: struggle) musician desperately trying to get their attention while simultaneously blocking your view and violating your sense of smell, while that one guy who insists on smoking weed at every concert he attends (you know, because it makes the show “that much better” in his mind) blows the smoke into your hair and face next to that one person that can’t handle their liquor and is about five seconds away from tossing his insides next to your feet that’s been stomped into oblivion by the dirty hippies who are suddenly allergic to water and haven’t showered in days.
(This was my SXSW a few years ago.)
Well, instead of having to deal with that, come fuck with us, get fucked up in the middle of the day, grab a free, limited-edition Rocksmith x 2DBz Dopehouse SXSW tee or a watch from FLüd Watches, party, bullshit and enjoy the rest of your day trying to figure out which way is up.
Last year’s edition was fun. It was simple, really: we didn’t want to throw a “showcase,” so instead we rounded up a couple of friends, shoved them all into a tiny loft and spun music all night, nearly crashing through the floor in the process. So, why not pull it off again for the 2013 edition of SXSW? And how do we make it even better?
By upgrading the formula, and making the Dopehouse a day party x rave.

Sounds good? Good.
