I already wrote a post on the “Must-See Films at SXSW”, but I felt that you were yearning for more information about some of the other cool things going down at the popular interactive/film/music festival in Austin.

  • For all you Bravo-philes out there, Andy Cohen will be hosting a week of Watch What Happens Live episodes during the Interactive portion of the festival. The roster of guests include: Brooklyn Decker, Kenya Moore, Brandi Glanville, Gillian Jacobs, Sarah Silverman, Ian Somerhalder, Nev Schulman, Jenny Slate, and Paloma Faith. That’s a lot of shotskis. If you are in town and want to attend a taping, visit www.bravotv.com/sxsw.
  • In an effort to spread the gospel of comedy, a new YouTube channel called JASH has risen. Created by Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, Tim and Eric and Reggie Watts and producers Daniel Kellison, Doug DeLuca, and Mickey Meyer, the channel is for comedians by comedians. Kind of like FUBU…except with comedians. Subscribe to the channel now: www.youtube.com/jash.
  • I included the D&D comedy Zero Charisma on my must-see list. The movie poster makes me want to see it even more:

  • Another movie I included on my must-see list was Snap, a movie starring Twilight‘s Nikki Reed (and let’s not forget that she wrote and starred in Thirteen). It’s a psychological thriller in the dubstep DJ scene. Yes. You heard that right. Check out the dubsteppy trailer:
  • You know that dude who Marnie dumped during sex on Girls? He (that woud be Christopher Abbott) has a movie at SXSW! It’s called Burma:
  • BURMA_POSTER_CHRIS_FINAL

  • A&E’s new series Bates Motel will have a special preview at the fest. Revisiting our favorite Hitchcockian mama’s boy has so intriguing:
  • The Bounceback: because we all need a comedy to teach us what to do and what not to do when getting over a break-up:
  • As for the music acts to keep your ear open to, SPIN has compiled a helpful list of 40 that deserve our attention.
