What do like most about playing at SXSW?
Never played it before but should be good to play to some new people

Are you out promoting anything?
Not really. One of my short movies (“The Alleyway”) is being shown at the SXSW film festival as part of the ‘Midnight Shorts’. My debut album “Humasyouhitch/Sonofabitch” is released in the UK and being promoted at College radio here in the US at the minute.

Are there any bands or musicians that you are looking forward to checking out?
I don’t know what the hell is going on. I’m sure I’ll find out when I get there.

What are the challenges in playing at SXSW?
Getting in to the country.

Do you have any survival tips?
Take insulin, check blood sugar level regularly, stay away from large doormen.

Are you more "stick around, check out music and enjoy the scene" or "play as many shows as possible then get out"?
Do as much as possible and then get out!

Any additional comments?
Come see me play.
