New to Austin? Wondering about all the traffic, closed streets and this thing called SXSW?? South by Southwest (SXSW) is a festival-type event held every year around mid-March here in Austin which involves conferences, interactive media, film, and of course, music--it wouldn't be Austin without music! The first SXSW event was held March 13-15, 1987, to bring together people in the music and alternative media industry together to collaborate and network. It started with 177 Showcasing Artists, 15 Panels, Workshops & Sessions, and 15 Venues & Stages, and has grown into what we know today as a fantastic venue for many budding stars in the entertainment and media industry to jumpstart their careers. Last year, SXSW grew to 2,266 Showcasing Artists, 233 Panels, Workshops & Sessions, and 107 Venues & Stages, along with the introduction of SX Health and MedTech Expo, a two-day event that coincided with the upcoming opening of University of Texas’ Dell Medical School. The whole event now usually lasts about a week and has literally had the city and schools around the downtown area close early.

Kick off the holiday season and celebrate the Zilker Tree 50th Ye
"Moving to a new city and finding a home to rent is stressful enough. Throw in having 4 pets and living 1500 miles away so you can't see any properties in person, and it becomes hell. Alfredo stepped in and made everything better. He helped us work through dozens of properties and agents until we finally found a house we loved and that would accommodate our pets. We couldn't have done this without him. I'll recommend him to everyone I know looking for a home in the greater Austin area.
