Five Questions:

1) What has been your most memorable show so far?

We played a day show in the parking lot of an art gallery. We decided to take shrooms before we played.  They kicked in about halfway through our set and we all stopped playing and burst out laughing.  Then we forgot our songs.

2) Which local band is your favorite one to play a show with?

Slippery Slopes (RIP), Sexcapades, Garbo’s Daughter, Vein Cranes, and Teenage Softies.  Watch out for Golden Pelican and Pillow Fight!

3) What description gets used for your band that you would most like to correct people on? Why?

That we’re always hungry, because sometimes we’re full.

4) What’s your favorite thing about being an Orlando band? What’s your least favorite?

Favorite: All the weirdos.

Least favorite: All the creeps.

5) Any big news to share?

We are going on a fun mid-west tour with Cop City?Chill Pillars September 7-20!
