DIFF After Hours with PSD: Just Another Tuesday Night

27 04 2012

Words by Kara Brock

I’ve heard that movie stars’ big night out on the town is Tuesday nights because all the average people are at home resting up for work the next day. And maybe that is why last Tuesday night was the night to party at DIFF. It started, of course, at the Angelika at Mockingbird Station seeing Sironia.

DIFF After Hours with PSD: Reel FX Party

Words by Kara Brock

So far DIFF is two for two as far as after-parties go. Not just hits, but home runs. If I knew anything about baseball I would give you that batting average stat, but I know enough to know that’s good. Hit the jump to find out why.

DIFF After Hours with PSD: Opening Night Gala

13 04 2012

Words by Kara Brock

For the past six years, Dallas has been ushering in spring with the finest independent films. But it’s not just the late night screenings and concession stand dinners that have caused all Dallas movie lovers to make their bosses shake their heads when they stroll in late to work, coffee in hand, and desperately in need of a nap. Don’t get me wrong, the films are great but in the words of the great R. Kelly “after the show is the after party and after the party it’s the hotel lobby.” These words rang true once again after last night’s opening night screening and gala.  This year, don’t just go to the movies and call it a night.

At this point, I’m pretty much running off of breakfast tacos and Tito’s vodka. And whatever free chips they’re handing out. Today on the agenda was the Rachel Ray day party, Filter Showdown at Cedar Street, Hype Hotel, Rachel Ray Greenhouse, etc. Protip: There’s no time to stop and eat at festival or you’ll lose precious minutes. Always keep moving. And drinking.

Friday I played host to the 2nd annual Local Edge at SXSW unoffish day party at Doc’s (more on that in a separate post). But that wasn’t the only event on my Friday agenda. I hit up the Spin day party, the Filter Showdown at Cedar Street party, and the Windish Agency showcase. Can’t stop. Won’t stop.
