    Definitely let us know what day you'll be playing on. I was going down there already to see Estradasphere and my friends band The Spoonfed Tribe.

    as it gets closer you guys need to start a thread with dates/times/locations so some of us locals can come over and see. SXSW is awesome. My band is out due to a member being gone...

    I agree; perhaps as SXSW approaches, you could again post notice.

    It would be great to see your bands.

    Have they suggested where you will be playing?

    i hope you are getting paid for the gig.

    SXSW screws the musicians out of money by not paying (believe me they have bread) and by having a bunch of musicians playing for free, a lot of the Austin musicians lose work.

    not trying to bum you out and i hope you are noticed here in the States.

    Since Virgin arranged this, we are getting paid, but I'd heard that before.

  10. Hey, that is definitely groovy. Care to share any secrets as to how you pulled that off? (Aside from the cliched 'work your butt off' blah blah blah)
