Our friends at Spinner have compiled a list of things to do in Austin during South By Southwest that help “Keep Austin Weird.” Should you manage some free time between gigs, movies, and catching up with sleep, spend it exploring the weird wonders of “the Live Music Capital of the World.”

For those readers particularly interested in what Austin’s animal kingdom has to offer, play Chicken S**t Bingo, bird-watch feral parakeets, or feast your eyes on over 1 million bats living under the Congress Avenue Bridge.

You’re going to get hungry hopping from showcase to showcase – make sure you try the legendary Dirty Sanchez Taco, or grab some BBQ for breakfast at Snow’s.

Don’t forget to say hi to Austin’s “unofficial mayor,” Leslie the cross-dressing homeless man. If you’re feeling particularly exhibitive, maybe you can invite him along for a naked swim at Barton Springs?

There is plenty more to do in Austin that is satisfyingly weird, so read the full article on Spinner for more city hot spots.
