the interview show: Creative Adult

When I arrived outside Vancouver’s DIY 333 venue shortly before the show, most of the members of San Francisco post-punk band Creative Adult were snoring in the tour van. The band had gone pretty hard the night before in Seattle, so I managed to convince the band’s guitarist, Michael Bingham, to talk with me while […]

Sam Tudor invites you to his party

Local musician Sam Tudor messaged me the other day to invite Winnie and all her friends to his album release party. His new record is called Quotidian Dream and Sam describes the record as psychedelic folk music. He tells me that the record is “a bit of a Lynchian meditation on the darkness/sadness inherent in a nuclear, […]

the interview show: Prairie Cat

Cary Pratt is Prairie Cat. He’s also a mainstay of the Vancouver music scene. He’s worked with many musicians over the years, most notably as the percussionist in the indie rock “supergroup” called Mounties (the band formed by indie rock legends Steve Bays, Ryan Dahle and Hawksley Workman). He’s just released his latest Prairie Cat […]

the interview show: Prozzäk

Prozzäk is a late 90s pop band that tells the tales of two animated characters, Simon and Milo, who are also best friends. Most of the music revolves around Simon‘s attempts to find true love. This band is the first record that most of my friends–who are now in their late 20s and early 30s–bought […]

the interview show: The Districts

The Fat Possum Record label indie rock whiz kids called The Districts announced that their next record, Popular Manipulations, will come out August 11th, 2017. For some reason, music journalists like to focus on two things when talking about the band: 1 they are “young” (the band was formed in 2009 by four high schoolers) […]

Wattpad Presents: Calling Local Filmmakers

The Coup Company (formerly CineCoup, the producers of the popular WolfCop movies series) and Wattpad (an online storytelling community) have a great opportunity for aspiring filmmakers. It’s called Wattpad Presents, and applications are currently open until July 9th, 2017. Show More Summary

the interview show: Making A Murderer

Making a Murderer is the surprise hit Netflix original documentary television series, written and directed by Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos. The show follows the story of Steven Avery, who spent 18 years in prison for rape and was freed after DNA linked another man to the crime. After being fully exonerated in 2003, Avery filed […]

the interview show: John Ridley (12 Years a Slave)

This summer I took The Interview Show on the road to the Banff World Media Festival at the staggeringly beautiful Banff Fairmont Springs Luxury Hotel and Resort. I got to hang out a bit with Oscar winning screenwriter and showrunner John Ridley. In fact we sat down for some tea right after he walked off […]

the interview show: Whitney

When I met Chicago indie band Whitney (Max Kakacek and Julien Ehrlich) at Vancouver’s Biltmore, they were in the middle of practicing a cool, weird, new handshake. Max and Julien met in their previous glam-rock band the Smith Westerns and quickly became close friends. When the Smith Westerns imploded, they started to work together on […]

the interview show: Oneohtrix Point Never

I hung out with Warp Records electronic, experimental, ambient, drone producer Daniel Lopatin aka Oneohtrix Point Never (or sometimes OPN) in an unusually busy alleyway behind Vancouver’s Venue nightclub. He sipped tea the whole time to massage his vocal chords for that night’s show. His latest record, Garden of Delete, started when Daniel got really […]

the interview show: PWR BTTM

May 2017 was supposed to be the start of the next stage in the career of queercore band PWR BTTM. They were set to release their next record Pageant–the follow up to the well-received 2015 full length debut Ugly Cherries. But then Jezebel.com posted accusations of sexual assault against PWR BTTM member Ben Hopkins by an […]

Exclusive premier: Within Rust “What You’re After”

Local “genre-averse” band Within Rust sent Winnie their new track, “What You’re After.” Band frontman Nolen Scott tells us, “We made a point of writing a type of song that we haven’t written before to jump-start our creative juices.” This song finds the band at an exciting place as they grow in a new direction after […]

the interview show: Baio (Vampire Weekend)

Christopher Baio is best known for being the bassist for the New York City-based indie rock band Vampire Weekend. But a few years ago, he started a solo project under the stage name Baio. I met Chris backstage at the Biltmore while his mouth was full of delicious humus. The Biltmore was too loud and […]

the interview show: Preoccupations

You might know post-punk band Preoccupations under the band’s old band name Viet Cong. After the original name proved problematic, the band wisely changed the name and returned with a new self-titled debut. I hung out with Matt Flegel and Scott “Monty” Munro as they downed some beers in the back of their tour van. […]

the interview show: P.O.S

When I hung out with Minneapolis rapper and Doomtree Collective kingpin P.O.S outside Vancouver’s Fortune Sound Lounge, he had just wolfed down a pork bun that he had bought in nearby Chinatown. The pork bun didn’t quite agree with him and, if you listen closely, you can hear the legendary rapper’s digestive system rebel against […]
