SXSW 2013 Interview: The Dig

By on Wednesday, 13th March 2013 at 3:00 pm
 

Brooklyn’s The Dig came to Austin just prior to the official kick-off of SXSW 2013 this week, first to play a show at Clive Bar as part of the Brooklyn Brewery’s showcase there on Sunday night (10 March), and then at the indoor stage at Stubb’s on the Monday night (11 March). But before their set on Monday, I grabbed the guys, headed for a tranquil spot by the river, and chatted with them about their arduous journey to get to Austin by van, new material headed our way and much more. Listen below.

[…] This night was unusual in the sense that on Sunday before the Music portion of SXSW, the only people in town are Film and Interactive festival attendees, so the vibe was different but cool all the same. Not sure it it was the booze or it was because Interactive was winding down, but the Dig had plenty of fangirls and boys squealing to their music and kicking up their heels to their music. The majority of songs they played were either from 2012′s ‘Midnight Flowers’ or were brand new songs only that night seeing public light of day for the first time, so I felt very special being there for their premiere. The lighting wasn’t great but seeing that it was being supported by imgur, it made sense in the SXSW world that animated images lit up the tent under which they were playing. The next day I also sorted an interview with the band, which we posted on TGTF last week; listen to it here. […]
