Soon we will be ditching the woolly mittens, dusting off our sunglasses and migrating south for SXSW. This time Mint Records and the Olio Festival are joining forces to host a fierce tequila and taco-fueled afternoon party with some of the finest up-and-coming talent (and a few old favourites for good measure). Vice Magazine Co-founder and man behind Street Boners and TV Carnage, Gavin Mcinnes will be starting things off with some street fashion insights and hilarity. Following that will be Vancouver's electrifying Humans, Mint's Hot Panda, Arbutus Records' Grimes and a band from Brooklyn called Bikini. Andrew WK will also be there to party hard - possibly with Nardwuar (we can't give away all of the surprises). Did we mention it is free? See you there!
