Super Happy Fun Land's SXSW Overflow Fest In Full Swing

Not everyone has the capital to attend South by Southwest this year, but that doesn't mean that you won't have the opportunity to hear some of the greatest bands in the world in the coming weeks.

In fact, if you're in Houston, you'll not only get a chance to see a lot of them, but you'll actually get to experience them in a much more intimate setting... for much less than the cost of a SXSW ticket, too.

Super Happy Fun Land is, once again, hosting its annual SXSW Overflow Festival, during which time the Houston venue serves as yet another stage for artists to play while they're in Texas.

"Our mission is to provide a venue for as many SXSW artists as we can," Brian Arthur says. "All the best bands in the world come to this reason for [the festival], and they want to play as much as they can."
