There are certain all-time classic films, and The Goonies is definitely one of them. If you haven’t seen this childhood favorite in years, or if you’re one of those weirdos who’s never seen it period, cancel your plans and go check it out tonight!

I can’t believe that we’re finally on the last day of ACL for 2013. I feel like the whole ‘first weekend’ vs. ‘second weekend’ was some kind of ‘east coast’ vs. ‘west coast’ rivalry, which weekend was better in your opinion?

BSBP-HAAM-1V2-791x1024

Might as well finish the weekend with a bang. The Barton Springs Block Party benefitting HAAM is the perfect way to get your final day of ACL kicking. They have complimentary cocktails, free food and music. Dulce Vida Tequila, Tito’s, Whole Foods, Hey Cupcake, and Gourdough’s will be there to make sure you’re having fun.

They also have free wifi and charging stations! This is a great place to come if you need to refuel during your final day at the fest!

Admission: free

When: today, October 13th

Time: 11:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Yes , you can still enjoy the madness of SXSW without the luxury of a wristband/badge. The free shows are at Auditorium Shores are on of the best things for those that do not have credentials.

Free music plus the city as a backdrop are a sure good time.

As one that has experienced the free shows before here are some pointers:

  • Parking is NOT easy. Take a cab, ride a bike, get dropped off, walk. If you are there early you may be able to park at Palmer Event Center (yet you have to pay to park).
  • Be prepared for a crowd but it is a great time!
  • If you don’t have  a specific show in mind that you want to see late afternoon/early evening is a great time to head out because watching the sky turn from day to night with Austin as a backdrop is pretty incredible.
  • Also, feel fee to tag me on instagram @365thingsaustin so I can see your pictures!
