SXSW has so many parties and so many awesome events, so while you are there, make sure to check out Tenacious D and Ghost Ghirls, you will not be disappointed!

Jack Black is very excited for the event as he spoke about the event glowingly saying, “There is no better place to unleash the beast that is Ghost Ghirls on an unsuspecting audience. Austin knows how to rock, and how to party, and how to marvel at the supernatural forces that inhabit our world. I’m so proud of this show, and I will be there with bells on, to bask in the glory.”

And if Jack is on board, you know it will be a really great time! So make sure you hit up the amazing event on March 13.

More info on “Ghost Ghirls”:

Golden Globe nominee Jack Black, Jake Johnson, Molly Shannon, Jason Schwartzman and numerous other celebrities will make cameo appearances in the hilarious, scripted 12-episode paranormal procedural.

Ghost Ghirls follows the comedic antics of two young female ghostbusters, played by Amanda Lund and Maria Blasucci–a pair of investigators attempting to solve the mysteries behind paranormal phenomena. At the same time, they attempt to convince their clients, some other-worldly visitors and themselves, that they are legit.

Ghost Ghirls was created by Jeremy Konner, Lund and Blasucci, who also serve as executive producers. Electric Dynamite’s Jack Black and Priyanka Mattoo are executive producers, as well. Jeremy Konner (Comedy Central’s Drunk History) is directing the series.
