What do like most about playing at SXSW?
AUSTIN!  In our trips to SXSW we have become acquainted with the city and fell in love.  It's our home away from home.  Also - the energy around the festival is like nothing else.  I always tell people that if they come to SXSW, they had better plan to return every year.  It's a one of a kind experience.

Are you out promoting anything?
TRANSFER will be in support of their brand new full length album, FUTURE SELVES and will be releasing the first video installment for the song, 'GET SOME REST' - shot in Austin with a native cast and crew, produced and directed by Laura Wallgren.  

Are there any bands or musicians that you are looking forward to checking out?
Looking forward to checking out Bear Hands, The Black and White Years, Band of Horses, Band of Skulls...pretty much all bands that start with the letter B

What are the challenges in playing at SXSW?
Time management, parking and sobriety

Do you have any survival tips?
Drink water, rest when you can

Are you more "stick around, check out music and enjoy the scene" or "play as many shows as possible then get out"?
We always head to SXSW with ambition to cruise around and enjoy the scene...but wind up adopting the mentality of soldiers at war with the elements.  It seems like right when you think you are free to just hang out, another show presents itself and it's off to the races.  All part of the excitement but it normally takes us about 3-4 days to recover/de-tox from the whole thing.

Any additional comments?
TRANSFER is thrilled to take part in the SXSW festival this year.  Come check it out!!
