SXSW Interviews: Jacuzzi Boys
Last week I wrote about Florida’s Jacuzzi Boys, a solid rock outfit coming our way for SXSW. Fortunately, we caught up with the trio before their trip to Austin, and now it’s time to share their responses. Stoked to have all three dudes chip in their answers, so thanks to Jason B. for his hard work getting this together. And be sure to check out their Glazin LP on Hardly Art.
