For most bands playing SXSW, the endless series of performances presented a challenge, but for some getting to Austin was the real battle.

Former Mae Shi fellas, Signals left Southern California back on March 2 and have been touring ever since, crossing through the expansive deserts of the Southwest, down into Louisiana, and back to Texas for nine shows in Austin.

Once they made it, they played at the New York Night Train's 5th Annual SXSW Hoodang (and, again tonight at the Panache SXSW Hangover Party at Beerland).

But before they hit Austin, Signals saw it all. They shared some tidbits on their blog, but exclusively for West Coast Sound, the gracious gentlemen of Signals have opened their van doors to expose the exciting life of rockers on the road.

After the jump, witness Signal's photo journal revealing UFO research facilities, highly narrative motel bedspreads, and the joys of small town punk rock.

From Signal's Jacob Cooper:

"We went on a 2 week tour before SXSW this year. We played in a lot of places. It was fun. We are also the most BORING BAND EVER by looking at these pics."
