If you're in Austin right now at SXSW, we envy you (if only for the music you're getting to see right now; weather wise, we're stuck in the majestic Mile High City where it's, oh, a brilliant 64 degrees right now).

As grizzled SX vets, we also trust that you're either A) completely overwhelmed if it's your first time, B) just waking up and hungover like hell, or C) bleary-eyed from trying to sort through everybody's Facebook pages and whatever other guides or fliers you've been able to get your hands on trying to map out your itinerary.

If the last thing is plaguing you, you've no doubt discovered that there are roughly ten billion bands out there. Forget trying to figure out who from the hometown is playing when and where, so you can go and support them. It's not like you can find that sort of information in any one handy place or anything.

Wait...ah, now, see, that's where we come in. Wouldn't you know it? We've done the heavy lifting here for you. Page down and check out this nifty SXSW Colorado Tip Sheet we've compiled (or to live vicariously if you're left behind and see who from here is down there).

Here's the drop on all of the Colorado goodness happening in Austin this week that we're aware of at the moment. If we missed something, it wasn't intentional, and, of course, you're welcome to let us know below. Have fun! Oh and while we're handing out SXSW tips, remember: Pace yourself, moderation and don't forget to eat!
