The Road to SXSW: Crossfaith List Their Five Favorite Things About Texas
In preparation for Revolver's March 15 Raw Power Management/The Agency Group SXSW showcase in Austin, Texas, we asked the guys in Crossfaith to list their five favorite things about Texas.
01. SXSW: "I guess the most famous thing in Texas is SXSW. It has been our dream to playing at SXSW for a long time, because many Japanese bands don't get the oppotunity to get outside of Japan. I've heard so many great things about SXSW. We're so glad to get a chance to show our music to you guys! I can't wait to have good times with our fans and friends!"
02. Tokio: Do you know Texas is a part of Japan? Haha! There's a city in Texas called Tokio. I was surprised when I heard about it. I'd love to go there and compare Tokio to Tokyo.
03. Tex-Mex Food: I love Tex-Mex food! Especially tacos — one of my favorite meals in the world. But we're from far east Asia (Japan), and it's hard to find Tex-Mex restaurants in Japan. So when I find Tex-Mex food, I always get it. Please tell me about great tacos places in Texas on Twitter or Facebook!
04. NASA: Don't laugh! To be an astronaut was my dream when I was young. NASA is the closest place to space. I used to think NASA is greater than the government! Everybody knows Apolo 11 didn't get the moon, but I still believe they walked on the moon. And playing a show outside of the earth is one of our huge dreams as well.
05. Minute Maid: The best beverage! I just found out the Minute Maid head office is in Texas as I was answering this question. I don't drink other fruit juices. It's little more expensive than others, though. If I have a chance to get to their HQ, I'd like to grab a bunch of juices for the tour!
