Drinks, cool people, smoking hot women and a ton of surprise guests made it a must-attend for me next year. .

It changed my life and made me want to throw one here in Chicago.

In summary, SXSW is an awesome time. I'd recommend going once, especially if you're the type of person who likes being up on new stuff and seeing a bunch of random stuff like the dude from Dashboard Confessional at a random bar at 12:45 am on a Wednesday.
