Astronautalis hits SXSW hard, unveils "This Is Our Science" video


Now that hip-hop metallurgist Astronautalis is among our local Minnesota ammo, there's going to be a huge footprint of local talent in Austin this week. Between Wednesday and Saturday, South by Southwest attendees will have seven chances to catch Mr. Andrew Bothwell and his electric-blond locks storming stages and taking names.

Additionally, there's visual salve for those of us chained in the stifling, disgusting 60-degree days the land of 10,000 lakes currently faces. Yes, there's a delightful new clip for "This Is Our Science,'' the title track from Astro's 2011 album. Everyone wins! Check the video and an exhaustive schedule of Austin performances below.


Filmed and directed by June Zandona, this video is 98 percent Astronautalis, and a split second of P.O.S.
