I admit it. I was going to be coming to SXSW for the weather -- out of a Montreal winter into the warmth and sunlight. I expected to be exhausted and turned off by the clamoring of egos and skinny jeans (I own a few pairs) and throngs of people everywhere. It was a great reminder for us about what is important about playing live and it was a short set so we had to find the magic fast. The crowd made that happen.
