After a canceled flight to Dallas, DaveO and KK (then of Vancouver’s Raincity Studios) roll back to Gastown (in a limo) to regroup before heading to Austin for SxSW Interactive and Music fests. Along the way, they discuss panels, marketing tactics, band photography, questions for REM, and networking strategies.
