SXSW Interview: Juiceboxxx
As we roll on with our SXSW coverage, we’ve go forward today with a little love from Juiceboxxx. Luckily, there’s a new album on the way in the Fall, so if you catch him during the festival, as you should, then perhaps you’ll get to sample some of these new jams for yourself.
ATH: Whats the name of the band/group? Where are you from?
Juiceboxxx. Milwaukee, WI.
ATH: Describe your groups sound.
Juiceboxxx is one person. American Music. Influences: Wu-Tang, The Breeders and Neon Hunk.
ATH: What was your most recent release? Any planned releases from 2019?
New LP coming fall 2019.
ATH: For most SXSW sets, you get 30 minutes to leave a lasting impression. Whats your plan of attack? You have a set list mapped out yet?
The live set is full-on. Doing it insane-style since I was an idiot kid. Now I am an idiot adult. Never been boring.
ATH: Lets say your band has been booked an official showcase at a pop up venue somewhere in the middle of 6th street. The lineup features thrash metal, hip-hop, spoken word, and you. The sound is horrible, the lineup is not your style, and the crowd seems angry at the world. How would your band deal with such a situation?
None of this is an issue. Honestly sounds like a great time!
ATH: There are tons of bands coming into town. Of the 1000+ bands coming into town, who would you ideally like to play with. What band friends will be here?
I think Palberta is going to be in town? Check them out. Great band.
ATH: What has everyone in the band been listening to, or, what plays in the tour van/car/bus?
70th Street Carlos from Baton Rouge is one of my favorite new rappers. And you gotta love Sleaford Mods.
ATH: Describe your perfect festival, real or not? Whos headlining? Wheres it take place? Etc.
Springsteen and Wu-Tang and then Neon Hunk reunion.
ATH: Whats on the bands rider? If were bringing you food and booze, what can we bring you?
Cases upon cases of Topo Chico.
ATH: The band gets to create their own taco pop-up shop at SXSW? Whats the name, and what sort of tacos will you have? Any sides?
Whatever the locals want.
