While I'm very excited to have my first outfit post, I need to gush about SXSW2010 for a bit.
The volunteer call on Sunday was 2-6, and boy, am I glad my roommate wanted to get there early! The place was not that busy when we arrived, but by the time we left, it was packed. So glad to have been in the first-round, as all of my hours are before the music portion of the festival even begins.
I've scheduled myself for 50 hours, which will earn me a SX Music Pass. While the SX Music Pass does not guarantee me priority access (damn you, badge-holders!), I can go to SXSW music showcase venues, music trade show, panels, and the Sunday BBQ and Baseball Tournament. I also get a Music Big Bag (free swag!) and a Music Directory.
My volunteers hours for the the 23rd annual music and media conference & festival are during Bag Stuffing Set-Up, Bag Stuffing (filling those free swag! bags takes a while), and Hospitality (maintaining the SXSW staff & volunteer area).
I'm not quite sure how much of the actual festival I will be able to enjoy, as money is tight right now. However, as long as I scrimp and save all of February--don't go shopping--and don't do anything for my spring break (which is a week after the festival ends), I can ask for work off.
The good news is the Art Institute of Austin is allowing me to skip classes during my volunteer times!
Anywho. Enough about SXSW. Let's talk about what I wore to the Volunteer Call on Sunday.
