Where was your first New York City show?
Glasslands with Body Language. It was our first show ever so it kind of sucked, but it could’ve been worse. We probably should have played some house shows before taking to the Glasslands stage.
What’s the biggest misconception about being a band in this city?
We’ve racked our minds and can’t think of any misconceptions, but I can talk about our experience in the city: we work all the time to pay rent and definitely don’t get to practice enough. We play a ton of fun shows and are lucky to have a community of amazing musicians and friends surrounding us.
On tour for a month, what three albums would get the most play in the van?
The Ventures, Ventures in Space; Bubbly Mommy Gun, Ain’t Got No Favorite Color/Sand Roses; Shaquille O’Neal, Shaq Diesel.
Favorite song about NYC?
“Central Park in the Dark” by Charles Ives.
If you had to relocate to another city, where would you be headed?
Moon base or New Orleans.
