    After we finish up these songs we are recording now, we are going to apply. So hopefully. Im not even sure when the deadline is though. Hopefully. If not, there is a good chance we could next year.

    I'm curious now; what's the application process like? Because from the sound of what I heard coming out of SXSW it's more of a "set up and play whenever, wherever" type of deal while this is more like "we will probably shut down unsanctioned shows"-y.

    Bump.

    This festival is going to kick ass. Though I don't understand why several bands have more than one set.

    To help alleviate conflict issues when 6-8 bands are playing different clubs at the same time?
