L to R: V. Jeffrey Smith, Sandra St. Victor, Peter Lord
Tomorrow marks the start of the three-day countdown to the next BoldasLIVE and The Family Stand. I realize that I’ve been running under the assumption that everyone knows who they are, but it’s just that: An assumption.
So, here’s a little preview of the discussion that they’ll have with Michaela angela Davis. Peter Lord, Jeff Smith and I taped this interview earlier this week, and it was going along really well. Then Pete’s coffee kicked in. Seriously, though, it was all good. Listen for yourself. The whole thing’s just over 19 minutes long. Like the others, you can download it and listen on the go.
Some of the topics we hit include:
- The new album, Super Sol Nova Vol. 1
- The state of the live music scene
- Why Pete thinks its only a return to an attempt at musicality
- Rock’s outsider status as an opportunity to be an alternative to the alternative
- Possibly the worst time in pop music ever
- Amy Winehouse as an example of great vibe & style, not necessarily great songs
- “Incestuous creativity”
They’ll get into some new areas when they sit down on Sunday with Michaela. Just in case you need the details for BoldasLIVE, here’s where we’ll be:
