What do like most about playing at SXSW?
It's the great and rare opportunity to see an overwhelming number of bands that you would normally see in large venues but at SXSW you more often than not get to see them play in an intimate club setting - and to top it off you get to see them for free.

Are you out promoting anything?
We are still promoting our first LP called About A Girl. Since getting off a tour of the West Coast with Thunderheist at the end of the year, we've been recording our second LP that will be out this fall. We will be playing a lot of new songs from that at SXSW!

Are there any bands or musicians that you are looking forward to checking out?
We're really looking forward to see Spoon and Cheap Trick cause we've never seen either band live before. CHAMILIONARE AND PAUL WALL!! HAHA

What are the challenges in playing at SXSW?
Trying to find parking anywhere remotely close to your gig.

Do you have any survival tips?
Scope out parking, and try to pace yourself with the free margaritas that inevitably show up everywhere.

Are you more "stick around, check out music and enjoy the scene" or "play as many shows as possible then get out"?
SXSW is about both these things- but especially a prolonged trip if we can get it to stay away from the cold of Montreal. Everything's warmer at SXSW.
