What do like most about playing at SXSW?
Well I've never been, so I have yet to find out. I do love playing City based festivals, you get all the exotica of a festival without the salmonella....

Are you out promoting anything?
Sure, I do have an album just out called ((un))...

Are there any bands or musicians that you are looking forward to checking out?
There's quite a few, not sure I'll have the time but if possible: jj, Solange Knowles, YACHT, Young Fathers....

What are the challenges in playing at SXSW?
I'm guessing squeezing in enough sleep.

Do you have any survival tips?
Don't take a LOT of drugs.

Are you more "stick around, check out music and enjoy the scene" or "play as many shows as possible then get out"?
I don't see those as mutually exculsive aims - I'm going to, perhaps foolishly, attempt both!

Any additional comments?
Will all food be fried?
