Sunset Sessions w/ Julius Papp Wednesday @ Lanai / Jay Tripwire + more @ The Madison Thur-Sat!

Well, the week of SXSW is finally here! As a music lover, this is one of my favorite weeks in Austin because we're blessed to so much experience world classic in our wonderful town. There's too many great events to mention, so I'll just focus on a couple here...

First up! The return of SUNSET SESSIONS, this time w/ special guest JULIUS PAPP on Wednesday, March 16 @ Lanai Rooftop Lounge. As usual, we will start the party early to take advantage of the lovely weather and Lanai's gorgeous rooftop patio ~ Show starts @ 4 pm, and - RED ALERT! - Julius Papp will be blessing us with a special downtempo set before the sun goes down. Plus, $2.50 beers, $3 frozen drinks and $4 VIP martinis (vodka-infused pineapple), plus half-priced pizzas 'til 8 pm. Full food menu 'til 10 pm. So yeah, come early!

Check the flyer below. Here are a few links to mixes from the crew, including Julius' fabulous "LazyDaze Vol. 1" live downtempo and soul set, plus a link to hear Julius’ new album, “Open Mind”, to get you in the mood.

After that, the folks from club FWD in Houston join forces with lovely Austin club The Madison for three days of pure techno and house loveliness, and a slammin' boat party on Lake Austin on Saturday evening.
