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.

Think! Found Magazine meets J&C Letters to the Editor. Their relationship grows stale and they put an ad on Craigslist. After a few days they meet Daniil Kharms. All is interesting and fresh again. As they grow old, the three of them enjoy reading Viola Spolin, William S. Burroughs, Keith Johnstone, and Albert Camus before they go to bed. Soundtracking their life’s journey are the works of Laurie Anderson, Jeffry Lewis, and Cecil Taylor.
