Haunting and hilarious is a combo you don’t usually see together in a film. Legendary Director William Friedkin brings about both feelings in easily the most intriguing film of the year. From Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning author Tracey Letts comes a hell of a black comedy. Click thru for our interview with one of Killer Joe‘s leads, Thomas Haden Church.

So far DIFF is two for two as far as after-parties go. Not just hits, but home runs. If I knew anything about baseball I would give you that batting average stat, but I know enough to know that’s good. Hit the jump to find out why.
At this point, I’m pretty much running off of breakfast tacos and Tito’s vodka. And whatever free chips they’re handing out. Today on the agenda was the Rachel Ray day party, Filter Showdown at Cedar Street, Hype Hotel, Rachel Ray Greenhouse, etc. Protip: There’s no time to stop and eat at festival or you’ll lose precious minutes. Always keep moving. And drinking.

Friday I played host to the 2nd annual Local Edge at SXSW unoffish day party at Doc’s (more on that in a separate post). But that wasn’t the only event on my Friday agenda. I hit up the Spin day party, the Filter Showdown at Cedar Street party, and the Windish Agency showcase. Can’t stop. Won’t stop.

The outdoor main stages open for day two of #35D. They worked out great last year, so let’s hope the weather holds up this year.

Ah yes, it’s my favorite time of year: festival season. And it all starts with the four day walkable conferette in Denton America, 35 Denton. Here’s a real quick rundown of where you should be on Thursday. But above all, go see tons of bands you’ve never heard of. Trust me.
