We asked and the great people at SXSW worked it out. Thanks Craig and  
Darin and Cathy!

Yes, it’s something we’ve always wanted to do.I think it’s a great way for young bands to get in front of a lot of people.

To play in front of a different crowd, hopefully make some new Street  
Dogs fans, check out some cool new bands, and to play a killer show  
on stage.
5. Are you attending any of the actual conference? Are you attending
other shows, what shows/bands are you looking forward to?
We are not planning to attend the conference as we are on tour all the  
way up until the day of our showcase. We’ll only be there for one night, but we’re definitely excited to see the Gamblers and maybe  check out a couple bands late night.
6. Do you expect that Boston will have a strong showing this year?
Not sure what other Boston bands are playing..I know Roll The Tanks  
who are originally from Boston, MA are playing. Great band, if you get  
a chance at SXSW you should check them out!
