Metal Blade Records is having a party March 15 at SXSW in Austin, Texas. From the press release:
Metal Blade Records has teamed up with Musicians Institute Annex (formerly Emo’s Annex) and co-sponsors ‘stache media to bring you one of the heaviest day parties devastating the streets of Austin this March, featuring Job for a Cowboy, Cancer Bats, Battlecross, Pilgrim, Gypsyhawk, Early Graves, and MI band Truceline. The bands will be hitting the infamous 6th Street location for 6 hours of metal and hard rock, celebrating the label’s 30th Anniversary, with doors opening at 11:30am. The party will be free of charge and open to the public. Be sure to get there early as the first 100 people in will receive a swag bag filled with goodies provided by Metal Blade Records, Indie Merch, and ‘stache media. There will also be a raffle held for some bigger ticket items, provided by Metal Blade and Indie Merch.

So help us celebrate our 30thanniversary and join us for some great music, some killer giveaways, and free beer while it lasts. And don’t forget to get your raffle ticket at the door for you chance to win some cool items from bands like As I Lay Dying, The Black Dahlia Murder, Behemoth, Goatwhore, and Amon Amarth just to name a few.
