Mixtape-SXSW

The Music portion of SXSW (we’re not even going to pretend like you don’t know what that acronym means) is as close to Mecca as you can get if you’re a lover of all things indie and undiscovered. For 25 years running it’s been the leading festival event in an industry that’s full of festival events. What’s it really about is discovering a bunch of bands even your plaid-wearing, PBR drinking friends haven’t heard of yet. We took the liberty of putting together some of our favorite artists and songs so you wouldn’t have to take a week off work and travel to Austin.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
