Your local indie game collective shows off the cutting edge of game design every month. This week they have the interactive A/V beauty of Panoramical. Afterward is possibly the first unofficial SXSW party: the Bang Pop! Pre-Party with Whiite Walls, Corguroi, Swelta, Zorch, Flying Turns, and Roger Sellers. 7pm. Free.
Cattle-roping and bull-riding, livestock contests, carnival fun, and kid-friendly events are just a few of the things putting you in a countrified mood. Loretta Lynn, Dwight Yoakam, the Temptations, and Willie Nelson are some of the many headliners. Go online for a complete list of events or to buy tickets and just follow the big, gleaming belt buckles. March 1-16. Fairgrounds. $8 ($5, kids); carnival, $38 (includes fairground); rodeo & concert: $37-175 (includes fairground).
