LA’s Tech Brands & Celebs Partying & Working at SXSW

LA’s tech set have mostly flown back home as music slowly creeps into the foggy streets of Austin this St Patrick’s Day morning, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge the star power that rolled into Austin to promote upcoming films or current web products, as well as the numerous brands that filled the corners from Rainey to 10th, from Red River to Lamar and a few points beyond.

Here is a representative sampling of the hustle that LA-based brands and celebrities have been doing out on the streets of Austin to promote their goods at SXSW:
