What do like most about playing at SXSW?
The heat.

Are you out promoting anything?
Not as such. We are, however, going to be debuting a shit-ton of new material.

Are there any bands or musicians that you are looking forward to checking out?
There are always too many bands to see. I'm sure we'll catch a few.

What are the challenges in playing at SXSW?
The heat. The staggering amount of cool. Parking.

Do you have any survival tips?
Come prepared to be hot. Also, your iPhone is going to give you problems.

Are you more "stick around, check out music and enjoy the scene" or "play as many shows as possible then get out"?
The latter. It's tough to get band-gear in and out of the downtown area. Once the gear is out, I am too.
