tbl“Just tell me where I have to show up and Rock ‘n’ Roll.” That’s the attitude Jaylinn Davidson, keyboard/synth player, has about SXSW where her band has 12 shows this year.

“Every year, SXSW is the most exciting time of the year. We moved here for SXSW,” says lead singer/guitar player Paul Waclawsky, who had to change shirts after sweating through his at their noon performance at Maggie Mae’s.

“Austin is a magnet,” he said. “It’s like Rock ‘n’ Roll band camp.”

They’ve played the festival four times unofficially, but this is their first time in showcases, getting better time slots. The three piece has a “psychadelic, leaning toward space rock, leaning toward 70s rock” sound fueled by Davidson’s masterful synth work.

“I make charts of everything I want to implement,” she says. “I have great equipment, I do a lot of experimentation and I read the manual” is her explanation of how she gets the out of this world sounds. She’s proud to say her synth sounds are in real time.

“She’s got her hands full,” Waclawsky says. “I need to get a theremin for my feet,” she says as she demonstrates waving her leg around.

Waclawsky’s said it’s a unique festival because everything is so close together, you can hop around. On that note, time to move on.
