What do like most about playing at SXSW?
I enjoy Chaos and SXSW has plenty to offer! Every year feels like a High School reunion. I consistently run into people that I NEVER thought I would see. And not just music folks. It is just a great time. Kinda like camp, but with beer.

Are you out promoting anything?
Our new album is called "Sorry For Partyin'"...New video and single "No Hablo Ingles" is out now!

Are there any bands or musicians that you are looking forward to checking out?
I haven't made my schedule yet, but I can not WAIT to see Linus of Hollywood and Parry Gripp!

What are the challenges in playing at SXSW?
It is a small area with a LOT of people. Loading in and out can be tough. they do a great job of trying to make it as smooth as possible, but it can be an insane experience. I am glad we have crew guys now!

Do you have any survival tips?
Drink lots of water and bring sunscreen. Also, and I am serious, bring good shoes, because you will walk a LOT!

Are you more "stick around, check out music and enjoy the scene" or "play as many shows as possible then get out"?
I went last year and didn't even play. it was GREAT! so I am doing a good combination of the two this year!!

Any additional comments?
Check out the SXSW website prior to going. they have a way to make a google calendar on there that you can sync with your phone...It was a LIFE SAVOR last year!
