What do like most about playing at SXSW?
Being in Austin TX

Are you out promoting anything?
New single 'Fields' and video from Moon Sweet Moon, last album which came out last October.

Are there any bands or musicians that you are looking forward to checking out?
Haven't checked it all out yet.

What are the challenges in playing at SXSW?
Lack of small intimate community gigs where bands meet each other.

Do you have any survival tips?
Get off the main streets especially if you need an ATM. $5 or $6 for withdrawal fees are not cool, ever.

Are you more "stick around, check out music and enjoy the scene" or "play as many shows as possible then get out"?
I'm more play, eat, find friends, meet people, go to the mellower gigs and take deep breaths.
