SXSW Interview: Grave Babies
Like everyone else, we’re inundated with all the great bands coming our way in the next few weeks, so we sent out a bunch of questions to our favorite acts, hoping to help spread the word. Our first responder is Grave Babies, who will be releasing their Gothdammit EP on April 17th via Hardly Art. Read on for their answers from Danny Wahfeldt…
DANNY: i’m not sure if there really is a similar festival to SXSW in terms of the chaos and disorganization that’s localized entirely in one US city… Getting around to the various venues and dealing with set times being postponed and changed all the time is probably the hardest part and with that comes dealing with the fatigue of playing two or three times a day for 4 days straight.
DANNY: Don’t take anyone seriously that doesn’t take themselves seriously.
DANNY: On our tour bus? Straight up gangster shit.
DANNY: Probably just run it into the ground and do a real thugged out witch house record.
DANNY: cocaine is a beverage. please don’t buy us anything, thank you.
DANNY: Probably all the sex and getting to do email interviews.
DANNY: GRAVE BABIES
