South by South West (SXSW), Interactive Music and Film Festival, is coming back to Austin, Texas this week and in order to keep up with this year's acts (which include New York's own Blood Orange and The Magnetic Fields, as well as buzz bands Blouse, and Metric), a survival kit is necessary to look cool and collected at the day parties, side shows, official events, after parties, pool hopping, and those 5 a.m. after-after parties. Make sure to pack the following list of must have items to ensure a good time.
