Like I said, I don’t usually go out all that much, but two exciting things happened this week! I won tickets to see Metric, a Canadian band, while I was on the phone, interviewing Deck d’Arcy, the bassist of French band, Phoenix. Surreal.
I wrote about Metric on my (other) blog, here. Thanks again to Whitefield, which held the contest. 🙂 My interview with Phoenix is out on a broadsheet, but is also online here. It was a pretty fun conversation. Here’s an excerpt:
Did you imagine, from playing in that garage, that you would be here nearly 20 years later, with five celebrated LPs and a Grammy?
Yes. At 15, we were absolutely sure. We would become a big deal. You have no clue when you are a kid. Of course, if we knew what it takes to get here… We were really shitty.
Other than that, the week was pretty low-key. I did finish one of the books I read last week, though. It was pretty funny, but I was not hooked emotionally, which is strange considering the subject matter… But I will write a review on that instead of blathering on here.
And then, last week’s posts, indexed here:
