SXSW Event: Commodore Von Keepsie's Craftacular Musical Carnivale

Commodore Von Keepsie's Craftacular Musical Carnivale

Funky Finds is very excited to be sponsoring an event being held during South By Southwest (SXSW), an annual music, film, & interactive conference & festival held in Austin, Texas. For the last 3 years, Standard Recording Company has been throwing free day party events at SXSW featuring great music & good food. Two years ago, Martha Latta of Sunday Afternoon Housewife suggested they combine indie rock with indie craft. With sponsors like Sublime Stitching and Craftster helping with make-and-takes, how could they go wrong? Of course, it was a huge hit, so they decided to continue the tradition this year.

This year's event, Commodore Von Keepsie's Craftacular Musical Carnivale, will be bigger and better (being in Texas, it must be BIG!). Graham's Texas Tea and Treaty Oak Rum are pouring the free drinks. Bust Magazine has signed on to be the national media sponsor. Hello Craft is sponsoring make & takes, ProvoCraft / Yudu will be there screening free shirts & tote bags for attendees, and 15 unique indie crafters will be selling their hand-crafted wares.

If you are interested in attending the event on Friday, March 18, between Noon and 8pm, at the Gypsy Lounge, you need to RSVP online. Please note, this will be an all-ages event. This is a great opportunity to hear some cool music, create something yourself, and purchase unique hand-crafted items! Oh, and grab some Funky Finds swag while you're at it!
