Spin Cocktail Party, 1213 Castle Hill, 7:45 p.m.
Who owns this misplaced Miami Beachhouse? Guccione? You know that scene in Revenge of the Nerds where the nerds are half-dancing to “Everybody’s Crazy”? This party is kinda like that (with open bar and product placement), but with flocks of half-baked, mostly-trashed indie-rock dorks and toxic glam hags (S’Cool Girls) on the set of Miami Vice. “It’s like a high school party,” says Blanche’s Tracee Miller, standing on the balcony as SXSW-ubiquitous former Smashing Pumpkin James Iha spins Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’,” Def Leppard’s “Photograph” and other anti-Hughes flick gems into his set.
