The ROCKthusiast Interviews…The Dirty Names

Toronto is a city where there’s always a lot going on when it comes to live music. Why should folks come out to see you at NXNE? What makes you stand out? And what’s your favourite T.O. venue?

Because it’s the best fucking show you’ll ever see in your life. Plus there will be a lot of girls there. Our favo(u)rite venues are Measure (previously Annex Live) and Cherry Cola’s!

NXNE is all about music discovery – Apart from yourself(ves), who’s the ONE ACT you would most recommend people check out at NXNE?

Imperial State Electric from Sweden will be sure to kick ass. We’ll be opening up for them in Montreal on June 16th!

Come September, what’s the coolest thing you hope to say you did “on your summer vacation?”

Five chicks at the same time while riding a one-humped camel greased up with olive oil. Did it last year, it was awesome.

We all know there will eventually be a zombie apocalypse – If you only had enough battery life left on your music player to enjoy ONE album in full before your brains get eaten, what would it be?

2 Live Crew – As Nasty as They Wanna Be

If you could play any festival in the world the rest of this year, which would it be and why?

Iceland Airwaves. We’ve heard Icelandic chicks are some of the best around.

Who in music has impressed you the most so far in 2013, and who do you feel still has something up their sleeve?

2013 has seen some awesome rock & roll and the guy that has grabbed our collective attention is Jake Bugg, a great songwriter from the UK. As far as we’re concerned, everybody has something up their sleeve.

Let’s say you had access to a WABAC machine like Sherman and Mr. Peabody did in the old Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoons; who’s the one person, band or event you wish you could go back in time to experience?

The T.A.M.I. Show from 1964. The list of performers is epic: James Brown, The Rolling Stones, The Supremes, Chuck Berry… Definitely a tough concert to top.

If you had an unlimited marketing budget, what would be your ideal “piece of swag?”

Free nipple piercings at all of our shows.

Please give me at least one pro and con as it relates to music and social media.

The obvious pro is that you can immediately connect with your fans on various platforms. Unfortunately it also waters down the music industry and distracts one from true culture.

Finally, let’s end on a positive note by you telling me the BEST thing about being an indie artist, and why fans should be hopeful for the future.

The world is your oyster! It allows for an open future full of ability and growth.
