Default Re: Foo Fighters at SXSW?

From the MTV posting, the foos will only be playing "Rope" at the woodies. There are 3 or 4 other performers as well, and it's an awards show.

However, there is a secret show the night before right after the screening of the movie, according to this article. Good luck getting into that one, though.

MTV has confirmed that the Foo Fighters will perform at the “2011 mtvU Woodie Awards” Live from the Austin Hall on March 16. The band is also expected to play a private show the night before, following the world premiere of a documentary about the band’s 16-year history.
The location of the Foo Fighters show is being kept secret until after the screening, 6 p.m. at the Paramount, of the full-length documentary. The band’s new album “Wasting Light” comes out April 12.
The Woodies, which also feature performances from Wiz Khalifa, Two Door Cinema Club. Sleigh Bells and more, will air live on three MTV channels. Go here to apply for one of 850 tickets MTV has set aside for fans to attend.

Brandon is that you? THIS article is what I heard last week from a friend (not a "foo fan" friend) going to SXSW who happened to post this.

Someone will do it the day of the show. 3-5 hours before the announcement.

Yeah, the Frog Design party was unlikely. The secret show is supposed to be Tuesday, the 15th.

I guess I didn't win the free tickets for Tuesday's premiere. So close, yet so far away. Sigh.

Today's Twitter clue was:
Woke up, looked at the clock, and it said 6:06. That must mean something special is happening today.....good sign.

That leads me to believe they could be at either the Iron Cactus (606 Trinity Street) or Nasty's (606 Maiden Lane). Not being from Austin, who can provide some insight on those venues?

Just heard from my girlfriend, who picked up a copy of the Statesman, that tickets will be 10$ and will go on sale before the screening of the movie at the Paramount. I need to go find a copy of the paper to confirm this.

Does the info at the bottom of the article refer to $10 for the screening or for the secret show?
