What do like most about playing at SXSW?
Never even been!  Looking forward to some madness.

Are you out promoting anything?
Got our first LP coming in April, and we're on tour all March.

Are there any bands or musicians that you are looking forward to checking out?
Haven't seen Plants & Animals yet, definitely want to check out Wolf Gang

What are the challenges in playing at SXSW?
I hear people are rarely physically fit enough to handle the experience.

Do you have any survival tips?
Don't skimp on sunscreen, gatorade and coconut water hydrate better than water, sleep on the leeward side of the mountain, and most importantly: live by the gun.

Are you more "stick around, check out music and enjoy the scene" or "play as many shows as possible then get out"?
Absolutely looking forward to checking things out and meeting people and getting some serious BBQ.
