Self-described as "indie rock with cello," the music of Fort Collins band Post Paradise puts a classical spin on alternative rock. The unique four-piece stopped into our CPR Performance Studio before heading down to this year's SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas to perform at the Colorado Music Party presented by OpenAir, Spokesbuzz, and Reverb.

Jessi Whitten spoke with the band about the music scene in Fort Collins, recruiting a cellist, and their experiences at past SXSW festivals.
