We’ve had an odd history with scheduling BASHH in recent years. For those following, you know we took a lot of heat cancelling events back in January 2020 when the world was still open, but we were opting to be abundantly cautious.
We got a lot of hate mail and were accused of overreacting and most people hadn’t really heard of the pandemic.
Fast forward to 2021, and case numbers started to improve in Travis County in the fall, and we started the ol’ BASHH machine back up.
In January of 2022, we nixed events again as Travis County entered Stage 5 (the highest stage of caution to date).
Now, as we get back to Stage 4, where we were when events renewed last fall, we are finalizing plans for our March event, which will be post-SXSW.
Another question we get about timing is regarding our being the unofficial kickoff to SXSW, but we no longer do that because the events have spread out to a week before and a week after. When we had the massive event, it was when no other events existed to welcome people to town that arrived a day early.
So to answer many of your questions: No, we’re not booking a pre-SX event, and yes, we’re trying to see you in March, we miss you too.
Stay tuned for the next date, we hope to announce soon!
