Join us for the KDHX and Twangfest SXSW Day Parties at the Broken Spoke in Austin. Now in their 15th year, the Twangfest day parties are among the most anticipated afternoon events during the week-long South By Southwest gathering.

Parties will be held Thursday, March 13 and Saturday, March 15, 2014.

Known as one of the great country music dance halls in the world, the Broken Spoke has hosted everyone from George Strait to Asleep at the Wheel, Bruce Robison to Dale Watson, Willie Nelson to the Derailers. It’s a big (600 person capacity), warm, historic and absolutely dance-friendly hall, with great home cooking and some of the coldest beer in town.

The Broken Spoke is located at 3201 S. Lamar Blvd. Austin, TX 78704.

Take an awesome virtual tour of the Spoke!

Twangfest and Do314 bring you cool Americana and indie, with free koozies

All advance tickets for Thursday, June 6 will also come with a FREE Twangfest/Do314 koozie

Few things go as well together as good music and cold beer. And for this year’s Twangfest, we’re partnering with Do314 to bring you a special deal that will keep your drink a little bit colder, and make it look a lot cooler.

For one night only — on Thursday, June 6 at the Duck Room — all advance tickets will also come with a FREE Twangfest/Do314 koozie. Join us for a night of fantastic Americana and indie, including Joe Pug, Motel Mirrors, Shivering Timbers and Scarlet Tanager.

These limited-edition koozies will be available only on this night, and only to those that purchase their tickets before June 6 at Ticketmaster, or by visiting Blueberry Hill in person (we recommend the latter, which will save you money on fees). Koozies will be available at the merch table on June 6 with your ticket stub.

Do314 is a website and social networking community built around all of the amazing events — like live music, street festivals, and other cultural happenings — going on in and around St. Louis every day.
