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.

And finally, De­troit rock band [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Dale Earn­hardt Jr. Jr.[/lastfm] also stopped in to dis­cuss their re­cent burst in­to the mu­si­cal spot­light. This trio, orig­i­nal­ly a duo, told us about their in­cep­tion, what it’s like to be a band in to­day’s De­troit mu­sic scene and what’s com­ing up next. Pro tip: Don’t be­lieve ev­ery­thing said about In­sane Clown Posse.
