This is our third year down at Austin, Texas for SXSW. This is also the first year for the MKE Shindig. MKE Shindig is an evolution of the annual Beer & Brat bash, which highlights the amazing Milwaukee tech scene down in Austin during the interactive portion of SXSW. However, the same team that put on the Beer & Brat bash wanted to expand the event to include arts, culture and local music.
On March 12 at Cedar Courtyard in downtown Austin, the MKE Shindig brought down Milwaukee's I'm Not A Pilot and Fresh Cut Collective to perform at the event in addition to several local startups such as Shindig and Stagebloc. The event drew several hundred people from Milwaukee, Austin and from all around the world. Below are photos from the MKE Shindig. We also took some amazing video of the event, and will editing the footage and posting it in a few days.
