I do not have to tell Skope readers that most music lovers are partying & experiencing amazing music down in Austin, TX this week for SXSW. So I decided to feature a band from Austin by the name of Indofin. I must warn you this interview is no holds barred so hide the children. The fact that the music these guys make is so good that it makes it okay. Join us as we offer an MP3 of “Fingerfight” from the album ‘2X Broken’ and check them live on March 18 in Austin at The Dorm Room. Let the SXSW festivities begin!

Albert, TJ Donny and Eric – Yes Austin TX, and yes this town is getting ready for SXSW.
Stoli: Do you have plans to attend/play SXSW and if so please let us know?
