Sure the Capitol Hill Block Party will have some killer music, but you'll want to be sure to bring some extra cash because there will also be a Rock Star Rummage Sale!
The Rock Star Rummage Sale will go from doors to dusk Friday-Sunday during the Capitol Hill Block Party, and some of the bands are getting real whacky with what they're selling. Some examples:
The Wheelies will be selling portraits drawn just for you, Metal Chocolates will be selling performances at a party of the purchaser's choice, Constant Lovers are making letterpressed coasters and postcards, as well as dresses, Hausu will be offering up mixed tapes, Land of Pines plan on selling homemade jam, Sports will have their very own tennis balls, Spurm's got soda (hopefully not full of uh, nevermind), and Yarn Owl will be selling a GIANT YARN BALL.
There will also be the usual onslaught of t-shirts, CDs, and vinyl, and there's sure to be some surprises (during the SXSW Send Off rummage sale, bands sold things like beard hairs and kisses—ew and sweet!).
