What do like most about playing at SXSW?
Getting to see bands we like and hanging out with our friends who play in bands.

Are you out promoting anything?
We have a record, Spirit Youth, coming out in late April and we'll be playing songs from that album.

Are there any bands or musicians that you are looking forward to checking out?
We're definitely going to try to catch sets by our friends in Oh No Ono, Summer Cats, Caucus, Pants Yell, North Highlands, Zaza, Serena Maneesh, Morning Benders, and PC Worship.

What are the challenges in playing at SXSW?
Getting from one show to the next in the heat.

Do you have any survival tips?
Don't drink kiwi-flavored Mad Dog 20/20 no matter how much of a good deal it may seem. I made that mistake last year. It gives you a terrible headache.

Are you more "stick around, check out music and enjoy the scene" or "play as many shows as possible then get out"?
We'll be checking out as many shows as possible but we can't stay for the entire thing since we're starting a US tour with Serena Maneesh immediately after SXSW.
