A del­uge of rain hit Austin this af­ter­noon but that didn’t stop [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]AWOL­NA­TION[/lastfm] from com­ing by to chat with us. The group, led by singer Aaron Bruno, dis­cussed per­form­ing live, song­writ­ing to­geth­er and how of­ten peo­ple crowd surf at their shows. Plus, the mu­si­cian told us what fans can ex­pect from them next.
