Haha, although we never really texted, you took the chance to play hanging with friends with me and we chatted on the chat thingy for Hanging with Friends (: You told me Happy New Year <3 and we started talking every single day after that. We talked about everything we thought and for some reason we still have stuff to talk about when we talk on the phone or text eachother (: I remember the first time I told you I loved you, it was a “bestfriend” kind of love but secretly, I meant more ;) haha. I remember our first (official) date, we watched 21 Jump Street and that movie was just too short haha. Did we even watch the movie? ;) haha.

Mumford & Sons perform new song “Ghosts That We Knew” after the second screening of Big Easy Express at the 2012 SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas on March 17, 2012.

Members of Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Old Crow Medicine Show were on hand at SXSW in Austin to discuss Big Easy Express, a new documentary about the bands’ joint trip from the Bay Area to New Orleans by train. It was a life-changing experience and a rather large undertaking, the musicians tell Rolling Stone: “I mean, it’s a lot to hire a train,” says the Medicine Show’s Gill Landry.

Any idea where I can hear/see this interview from SXSW? I've looked to no avail. If anyone would know, it'd be you (marvelous you!). The one with the caption- Ted being interviewed for SXSW with the caption "You must be new?"

Oh, marvelous you!  If you’re talking about this screen cap, it seems that interview was aired only once immediately following the initial live stream of the SXSW concert on March 17th, and it has not been posted anywhere else since then.  I’ll keep looking for it; I suspect it may eventually be posted on the Big Easy Express website, but only time will tell.  Here’s hoping!

Thank you for the question!
