We have played twice before, but this is the first time with this newest incarnation of the band.
2) What's the best thing about being in Austin? Or if you've not been before.... What are your tourism related plans?
Record shopping at Waterloo Records, delicious breakfast tacos, and drinking a cold Shiner in the dry Texas heat.
3) Why are you playing SxSW? ('Cos we hear the money isn't too good)
We haven't been able to work it into our tour schedule in the last couple of years, and being in the middle of recording a new album this year, it's sort of a pre-emptive strike. Plus, it's been a really cold winter in Toronto.
4) Who are you showcasing for, and where and when can we expect to see you?
We're playing the Red Ryder showcase at Central Presbyterian Church (8th & Brazos) on Saturday, March 19th. We're also playing several times throughout the week, with dates/times listed on our website.
5) Which other bands/artists are you most looking forward to seeing over music week?
American Music Club, Quintron and Miss Pussycat, Damien Jurado, Frazey Ford, Matthew And The Arrogant Sea, Ron Sexsmith, and so many others.
6) Will you visit the Film or Interactive sections of SxSW this year? Or is time tight?
We're pretty busy over the week, but the films are always really great, so if there's time we will probably check that out.
7) What does the rest of 2011 hold for you?
Woodshedding, writing songs, and hopefully piecing together a new record. We have a short tour in the works for the summertime.
