I'm from Austin.  Our city leadership is notoriously oblivious, and has been for decades, so its no surprise they waited this long.  Locals are worried that people will come anyways, as some events are still happening at the encouragement of local businesses.

 

Two days ago the mayor was saying that SXSW wouldn't put the public at any greater risk.  :shock:

Yeah SXSW is usually bigger than the event itself. I mean that when they are having parties and concerts that the rest of the town are throwing corporate parties for the interactive crowd and the music section has local places all over playing bands. Tons of Live music that week. Bands just want to say they played during SXSW in Austin. As someone that lives here. I don't mind them  closing it huge traffic headache. I normally avoid it.

I'm in Austin. people are freaking out like crazy lol. i guess the loss of SXSW is really impacting local businesses. some food vendors saying they basically lost a whole season's income.

So the Texas Democratic Convention is during SXSW and since SXSW is not happening I wonder if that would help the attendance.

 

I also know some people at work took time off for SXSW and now they have the time off and spending it at home.
