Two Hours Traffic - SXSW Interview and Video


Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada

SXSW Show Times:
Mar 20 8:00P - Treasure Island - Music Gorilla Showcase
Mar 20 11:00P - Mi Casa Cantina

What do like most about playing at SXSW?
It's a tie between the margarita machine at the Canadian house and seeing cool bands we would not normally get to see.

Are you out promoting anything?
We've got a new album called Territory and have recently ventured into the animated world with our new music video for a tune called Noisemaker. 

Are there any bands or musicians that you are looking forward to checking out?
I'm hoping we can catch The dBs. 

What are the challenges in playing at SXSW?
Due to the intense heat it becomes tempting to wear shorts while playing.  We learned early on however that shorts on stage are unacceptable. Having said that, if it's hot enough...

Do you have any survival tips?
Do not wear sunscreen.

Are you more "stick around, check out music and enjoy the scene" or "play as many shows as possible then get out"?
Definitely the former. When's that Magnetic Fields documentary showing? Wouldn't mind seeing that.

Any additional comments?
Come to our showcase. The drive from Prince Edward Island may near kill us but we still give it our all.
