The days are getting longer, the nights are getting shorter and sweeter, and that, my little vixens, can only mean one thing: it's getting close to being almost time for the one and only SXSW. And of course, that means I had to ask some questions of the bands I'd sure want to see if I was heading down to Austin for the 25th annual SXSW-stravaganza.
When Sensual Harassment's in town, y'all, it's time to get daggum down. These good-time dancefloor rockalicious hooligans have taken their act to Austin, and I've no doubt much dancing and debauchery has been, and will be, going on. Check out how these lads of loudness will be enjoying themselves. And if you've got any extra hot sauce, well, I'm sure they'd be stoked.
Les Enfants Terribles: How are you getting to SXSW: plane, train, or automobile?
Sensual Harassment: Two words: Minivan Highway.
