Performing at SXSW 2012

Grimes: “It was good, it was very different from the first time. It was extremely exhausting. After we got back I went like nine days without sleeping or something crazy and my body had a complete breakdown. I was sicker than I’d ever been. I had to cancel a bunch of shows.

“But I mean SXSW was fun so it was kind of worth it, but by the end it was just so intense. It was just this crazy going, going, going thing. I played with Light Asylum. I love them. I played with Purity Ring, Charlie, I played with Charli XCX, The Dream. It’s weird because you play the show and then you immediately have to pack up and leave and you don’t really see the people you played with that much.”
