**SXSW Spotlight** Scissors For Lefty


Part Brit-pop and part indie rock, with a campy persona and dreamy lyrics to match, Scissors For Lefty finished 2007 on a strong note. After making appearances at the Echo Project Festival, CMJ, and a nearly two month long tour with Juliette & The Licks, the band is prepared to make a statement again in 2008. Having already landed themselves a spot on the Cloverfield soundtrack, and rotation on MTVHits, Scissors For Lefty are looking to maintain the momentum in Austin with a whirlwind of dates at SXSW music festival March 10-15. In total, the boys will be playing 7 shows over the 6 day festival.
