Enjoy Hype Hotel's amazing line-up without the wait.
Hype Hotel Presented by Feed the Beat aims to connect SXSW 2015 festival goers with the social media world in their 'Fast Pass' giveaway; a limited chance to gain immediate access to the venue where they'll be first in line to see some of the best new bands the world has to offer.
Hype Hotel is coming next week (March 17th - 21st)
While Austin's SXSW week may be one of the most sought after festivals to gain attendance to in the world, there's also that issue of pesky admission queues which are quite scary to think about. However, don't let that dampen your spirits if you're set to attend next week because Hype Hotel have teamed up with sponsors Mazda to offer a select amount of attendees a 'Fast Pass', with which they can jump those endless lines.
Mindy McCready, a 37 year old country singer from the US, has appeared on the Today Show denying the murder of her partner and father of her son, David Wilson, who was found dead with a gun shot wound to the head on January 13th 2013.
"I have never gone through anything this painful," she said in the interview. "He didn't just touch my heart, he touched my soul. He was my soulmate." The gun shot didn't kill him immediately and he was apparently responding for a little while, but making only sounds, rather than coherent words. McCready found him, "I just started screaming, calling 911," she said. "I lay down next to him and just just pleaded with him not to die."
Currently the investigation remains open and once forensic examinations and tests should confirm whether or not his death was the result of suicide. Currently there are no suspects in the case and the police aren't considering McCready as one either. In a very strange twist to the story, the bullet that Wilson alledgedly shot himself with wasn't found until the following day because it was, apparently, in the dog's mouth.
The format is rapidly becoming a familiar one. A la Garden State, an angst-ridden twentysomething heads back to his hometown, rediscovers old pleasures, reconnects with old friends, meets new ones, and basically uses this nostalgia as an implement for self-discovery. In the case of Adam (Michael Stasko, who also co-wrote the script), he was an apparently unpopular nobody in high school, but his friends who never got out of the 'burbs haven't fared much better. He settles in for a lazy summer by the pool, but a meeting with old acquaintance Mac (Daniel Wilson) launches him into a more adventurous couple of months. Their goal: Make of list of "things to do" and then get them done. It ain't rocket science: Sky-diving, building a downhill derby car... that sort of thing. Adam and Mac go through the list over the rest of the summer, wryly passing the time in oddly coming fashion.
