Dubspot @ SXSW 2011: Fiestas, BBQ Benefit + DJ/Producer Workshops

For the past 25 years SXSW (South by Southwest) has been building momentum as one of the best places to hear where the pulse of music is headed. While all styles are loved and represented in Austin at this annual event there has been a serious shift towards electronic music and an emphasis on DJs. Dubspot will be repping in full-effect and bringing the bass for multiple events, demos and music performances in Austin, Texas. Earlier this week, we announced our official DJ and Music Production Workshops and demos at the SXSW 2011 Music Trade Show in Gear Alley, on March 17th, 18th, and 19th! In this post we follow up with a list of more events that we will be involved with in Austin next week.

We’ve partnered with Livid Instruments, Ableton, Native Instruments and Propellerhead, this year to bring you Dubspot Austin Sessions workshops and giveaways at this year’s SXSW festival! On Thursday, Martch 17th, we’ll kick off a 6-hour workshop and demonstration sessions from 1pm to 7pm at Deseo Centro Lounge. Join us to get a taste of what we’re all about and learn something new for your studio workflow. [Facebook event page]
