Armed with a multitude of instruments, laptops, video, paint and canvases, the environmentally-friendly local band Cloud Cult are making their second trip to SXSW this year.

The annual migration would have been their third, but three years ago they pulled out of their SXSW performance to open up for Ralph Nader at a protest in Crawford, Texas. With "Feel Good Ghosts (Tea-partying Through Tornadoes)," their new album (yes, another one) coming out April 8, 2008, Cloud Cult has planned a busy touring schedule for the spring that criss-crosses the country.

Songs performed: "Hope (from Meaning of 8)," "No One Said It Would be Easy," "Everybody Here is a Cloud," and "Intro/The Tornado Lessons."
