SXSW Interviews: K-Holes
K-Holes are one of the bands that you’re either going to love or hate, though I’d prefer if you loved them. Every time I listen to their single for their upcoming record, Dismania, I nostalgically wander back to the early days of Liars. We caught up with them via email before their trip to SXSW, and they threw some humor our way, which is always appreciated. Thanks Mr. Baxter for the interview hookup. Here’s answers from the band…ATH: What is the most challenging thing about being a band during SXSW or another similar festival?
