Urbanears at SXSW

March 8, 2013 , ,

From March 9 through the 14th, you can find us at the Hope Outdoor Gallery, a three-story art project located at 11th & Baylor Streets. One of the largest outdoor galleries in Texas, the Hope Outdoor Gallery was developed to provide muralists, graffiti artists and community groups the opportunity to display large scale art pieces driven by inspirational, positive and educational messaging.

We’ll have artists painting new murals featuring colors from the Urbanears spring collection every day at 11 am, and then on March 14 at 1:00pm we’ll unveil an Urbanears Collab Piece, followed by a Silent Disco party. Drop by the gallery for access to the party.

If you haven’t gotten your fill of us by then, we’ll be hosting a Backlot Concert Series together with Urban Outfitters from March 14 to 17. Concerts start at noon daily, but be sure to get there early as admittance is on a first come, first serve basis.

Each day, the first 100 guests will receive a free Slussen adapter. Find us at the Urban Outfitters store at 2406 Guadalupe St and see the band line up here.

All week long starting March 8, you also can find us on the Wired RVIP Tour, a mobile karaoke unit housed in a customized RV, where we’ll be featuring Zinken headphones along with the Slussen adapter. Open later than any party, access to the RVIP lounge is always free. Routes change daily, so keep your eyes peeled and don’t be afraid to jump on and say hi.

SXSW runs from March 8 to 17 this year, offering the unique convergence of original music, independent film and emerging technologies. Find out more about the event on

See you there!
