As a lead-up to South by Southwest, The Noise Room is talking to bands and artists performing at SXSW. Here’s what Marius from Team Me had to say:
What do like most about playing at SXSW?
Last time we played, the weather was amazing. We left our freezing barn back in Norway and felt delighted when we arrived in Texas. Frozen Margaritas at Gueros was definitely one of the highlights. Deerhoof at Emo`s was another one.
Are there any bands or musicians that you are looking forward to checking out?
Avi Buffalo and Dråpe! I really hope Beck is going to do a show as well.
What are the challenges for you or your band when playing at SXSW?
Cant think of any challenges really.
Do you have any survival tips for those attending SXSW?

Are you more “stick around, check out music and enjoy the scene” or “play as many shows as possible then get out”?
