Interviews are overrated. Donnybrook and associates eschewed such formalities as “speaking” in our SXSW coverage and just gave people hugs – because we are a peaceful, loving people. What can we say?

These United States with “Kevin Hamilton! He’s very tall! and he plays in a band called Very Emergency! But, he was at SXSW playing with a band called Varsovia! He’s a good drummer! AND he’s very tall. This isn’t all I know about Kevin, but I suppose this is all the world needs to know about him right now.” – caption lovingly provided by Justin Craig (pictured left here) from These United States.
