Interview: Popular Ego Debuts to Fans (on time) at the Black Sparrow

2012-08-11-Popular Ego Poster

For the first time in the history of the establishment, a show at the Black Sparrow started on time. Popular Ego debuted to a packed house. With an already established fan club, the transition was intuitive. Chad Rainey on guitar, Andrea Sullivan hitting the drums, Ryan Pitts (from Tigerfox) on bass, Ethan from LA.

Popular Ego also had a poster decoration contest; carrots were a major theme of the evening with patrons and fans alike. If you are well dressed and enjoy vegetables, Popular Ego is for you.

There is a fan page on Facebook. Search’em out. Cintia and Roberta would appreciate it.

Set list from the evening:

  1. Long Hair
  2. Fashion Farm
  3. Chickpea
  4. Kidney Bean
  5. My Perfect Cousin
  6. Ghost in My Room
  7. RnR Scientist (birthday gift from Chad)
  8. Bad Generation (Public education situation in America)
  9. Make Way for the Punks
  10. Biggest Baby

It should be noted that the sequence of Make Way for the Punks and Biggest Baby was intentional. Could someone please confirm with us that there was no pause between the two songs during the debut performance?

Keep checking Popular Ego’s soundcloud for the bootleg.

Interview: #WeAreDaggers

News Channel Internet

We recently had the pleasure of interviewing #WeAreDaggers (Natty Morrison, Ryan King, Manny Cervantes) in front of the Knickerbocker Saloon in downtown Lafayette.

The night was electric; the hottest day of the year, it was Alex Bassice’s birthday celebration, Dino DNA was finishing their set, The Jim Jims were going to play a reunion show, and the night would be topped off with the Green Room Rockers.

In this interview, we were not able to discuss anything about the music of #WeAreDaggers. Instead, we talked about everything else in the world, including the influence Echo Delta has on the group.

If you want to learn more about this new media powerhouse in Lafayette, check out their band and fun blog at WeAreDaggers.com.

Interview: Harry and Jake Speak Politely – 2012-01-21 – Part 2

News Channel Internet

After spending several weeks trying to secure an interview with Harry and Jake of Harry and Jake Speak Politely, we managed to conduct a short interview.

January 21st, 2012. A superb evening of music (High School Girls, Broken Light, Mid-American) at the Knickerbocker Saloon in downtown Lafayette. High School Girls finished their set. Broken Light was adjusting the stage for theirs. I bumped into Harry and asked again for the interview. He agreed. Jake showed up a few minutes later. This is the second part of our initial encounter with these two independent media creators, Harry and Jake

We learned that despite the environment, it was not too loud to conduct an interview, what Harry and Jake Speak Politely is about, their lack of microphone stands, preferred beverages, why names are important to the interview style of Harry and Jake, the enchanting power of television, what level Harry and Jake are on, and their love of editing.
