SXSW Q&A: Iroquois Falls
Published on February 7th, 2012 | Jonny Abrams
It’s SXSW time in Austin, Texas next month, so Rocksucker fired off some carefully considered questions to bands who shall be performing there, specifically those on the really rather splendid roster of artist development agency Solid Gold. Next up, it’s Toronto experimentalist Iroquois Falls…
“Hey Annie (Twice Born Once From a Gun)”
Hello! How are you?
Awesome. Intense. Not sure.
If you’ve been to SXSW before, what were your most memorable experiences of it? If you haven’t, what manner of crazy crap have you heard about it that you’re looking forward to checking out for yourself?
Well it’s a total zoo which is great for six days. By the time it’s done, you’re out of your head. Guess that’s why everyone goes…
Which other bands are you looking forward to seeing?
Have you got a decent place to sleep lined up, or are you going to be “roughing it”?
Yes, I know where I will be sleeping.
Are you a fan of festival food? Any particular favourites?
Sliders, crawfish, taco trucks, whole foods.
Will you be taking any of the following with you: hand sanitizer, baby wipes, earplugs, a fanny bag (or bum bag as we call them on our side of the pond), a flashlight, a miniature fan, a pop-up tent, an inflatable mattress and/or pillow, a fold-up chair, or other (please specify)?
Headbands, wristbands etc.
Do you have any helpful, practical advice for our readers (SXSW-related or otherwise?)
Otherwise: chin up.
What else have you got lined up for 2012?
Doing a 7″ with High Scores, should be out in March.
Iroquois Falls, thank you.
