Our latest South By Southwest party with Berklee College of Music was a total blast, and while we were livestreaming the whole thing straight from Friends Bar in Austin, we grabbed a few of the performing bands and artists for exclusive interviews with Vanyaland’s Victoria Wasylak.


Hit up the Soundcloud playlist below for raw and on-the-fly interviews with Contact (pictured up top), Weakened Friends, TRISHES, Bat House, Aüva, and Rebecca Loebe. We chatted about SXSW, playing Austin in the middle of the chaos (“we brought the Allston with us,” says Bat House), and what it was like getting down to Texas as Winter Storm Stella battered the northeastern part of the country.

There’s even a great anecdote about how a handful of Trader Joe’s chips saved the lives of Weakened Friends. So these chats are educational as well as entertaining. Grab a bag, revisit Friday’s livestream, and hit play below.
