SXSW Sub Pop Showcase

SXSW music festival is currently taking place in Austin right now, but if you’re not cool enough to mess with Texas, you’re probably going to miss it. Or will you?! Darkroom will be live streaming the Sub Pop SXSW Records Showcase on Friday, March 16th! The show will feature Niki & the Dove, Spoek Mathambo, THEESatisfaction and other bands whose names confuse the hell out of spell check. Additionally DJ Boy Wonder and Jon Huang will be on the turntables in house to keep the party going in between sets. Last, but not least, complimentary food will be provided by local food trucks (The Slide Ride, 5411 Empanadas and Cupcakes for Courage) along with an OPEN BAR!

Before you get too excited you should know that there is a small caveat. The flyer reads:
Admission is free and exclusive to MasterCard cardholders (credit, debit or reloadable prepaid) and PayPass-device holders (debit or credit card, key fob, sticker, or Google Wallet Nexus S 4G phone).
I could be mistaken, but it appears that you'll be required to present some type of MasterCard card or device to get into this event. Or perhaps you can get in without a MasterCard as long as you RSVP, but you'll only receive VIP treatment if you have a PayPass-enabled device or Google Wallet on your phone? Figure it out and let me know. I'm too lazy important to inquire further.
