What do like most about playing at SXSW?
All the weird friends who come to town and sleep on our couches.

Are you out promoting anything?
We have a new CD being released March 6 entitled Escobarb. It's special.

Are there any bands or musicians that you are looking forward to checking out?
Whoever is playing the day parties.

What are the challenges in playing at SXSW?
Set changes are hard. Parking is hard. Clubs being run by strange new people is hard. Math is hard.

Do you have any survival tips?
The bar will only give you two beers, so have a bottle stashed in your van.

Are you more "stick around, check out music and enjoy the scene" or "play as many shows as possible then get out"?
We live here, so we stick around and ride our bikes to the day parties.

Any additional comments?
Get yerself a bike. You'll be glad you did.
