SXSW Pre-Game

Get a taste of Austin, Texas-based music fest South by Southwest -- or mingle with fellow attendees -- before heading to the music, film and digital conference at SXSW Pre-Game. There will be Texas-themed food and cocktails, social media contests, speakers and music by local bands performing at SXSW, including Ballroom Boxer and Aly Jados. Why go: Proceeds from the event benefit Chicago community-focused charity organization EPIC. Reconsider: You don't want to be reminded that you are not going to SXSW. 5:30-9 p.m. Monday at Double Door, 1572 N. Milwaukee Ave.; $5 donation; sxswchi.eventbrite.com
