Your first show in NYC as Juniper Rising—where’d you play? How’d it go?
Don Pedro in Bushwick. It was good—a bit nervous but a happy crowd. A huge fight broke out during the last band’s set... some guy in the audience pulled the drummer off his throne during a song!
What’s the biggest misconception about being a band in this city?
It seems people outside of New York think Brooklyn bands have an advantage over bands in other places.
On tour for a month, what three albums would get the most play in the van?
Neil Young, On the Beach; Bruce Springsteen, Nebraska; Hank Williams’ and The Everly Brothers’ Best Ofs are a tie.
Ideal four-band bill—who’s playing with you, and where are you playing?
Loretta Lynn, Natural Child (TN), The Sterling Sisters (MD). At Loretta’s Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, in the spring.
