The rumors are true…

…the {RV}IP Lounge rides again. Austin’s most hilarious karaoke party on wheels is returning for South by Southwest Festival, March 13-20th.  Though {RV}IP is eternally Lo-Fi at heart, we’ve made a few technological advancements this year.  For those of you who can’t make it out to Texas, we will live-stream interviews, mini-panels, acoustic sets, and epic karaoke performances from the “{RV}IP Media Den” via and  All karaoke singers will be entered into a raffle to win a new Intel Netbook (thanks, guys!), and {RV}IP will co-conspire on CauseCast’s Moustache March, outdoor RockBand with GirlGamer, and, as usual, surprise the long, waiting lines of Austin party-goers with our red carpet karaoke. Helmed, as always, by LOUD3R VP Jonathan Grubb and actress/cellist Kestrin Pantera, we won’t necessarily take you right where you want to go, but you’ll always end up where you want to be. For location updates, follow {RV}IP Lounge on Twitter at

“‘The RVIP Lounge is the greatest experience you’ll ever have. You may think you’re having a good time in all those trendy clubs and bars downtown, but how many times have you thought to yourself ‘Is this really happening?’ At the RVIP Lounge, the surreal is commonplace.’”  – The Los Angeles Times
