E.A.S.T. is an overwhelming beast of an art tour, so we put together three self-guided tours to help you navigate the chaos. The best thing to do is get on your bike and go.  Keep moving.  You won’t see everything (and you don’t want to).  Listen to your gut.  If it’s time to move on to the next place, do it.  Don’t get stuck in the big places that have tons of studios, unless you’re feeling it.  Keep moving and explore.  

Thanks to Xochi Solis, Sean Gaulager, and Jules Buck Jones for their recommendations on these tours.  The amazing places that they represent (MASS Gallery and Co-Lab Projects) would have been on this list with or without their help.  All three of them are incredible people with great tenacity and artistic know-how.  We are lucky to have them as well as the scores of creators in their scene.

SXSW is upon us. This year we have two showcases. The first is at Beerland on Wednesday afternoon. It’s free with no wristband needed. The second is Saturday evening at the hideout. That one is official, but some tickets will be available at the door. We’ll be bugging you about it on social media. Here are the bands/times:
