You’ve had a pretty crazy couple of months, with TV performances and the album release.

Nick: The TV stuff’s been pretty surreal and we don’t get nervous for a lot of things but the TV stuff is pretty nuts. …

After their wild set earlier on the third and final day of Firefly Festival, we sat down to chat with Graham Ulicny, Ryan Engelberger, and Poof Daunghty of Reptar to talk about twitter, touring, and their reputation as one of the craziest live bands out there.

By Ace Ubas

Living in Los Angeles, I’ve had the pleasure to see The Happy Hollows live many times. It didn’t take long for me to come to the conclusion that the quartet is easily one of the most impressive and fun bands to see live. They kicked off Make Music Pasadena with an impressive set as the crowd began to settle in under the blazing sun. Afterwards, I had a chance to speak to all four members – Sarah …

Make Music Pasadena took place on a rather warm and sunny Saturday, yet devoted fans managed to battle through the heat to see the headliners, Grouplove. But before their set, I had a chance catch up with the band to discuss their tour, artistic background, DIY attitude, and pranks.

By: Cassandra Paiva

When I found out that I would be interviewing Luke Pritchard of The Kooks, the band that I have been absolutely in love with since before I was even sweet 16, there were no words. Thankfully, by the time the interview came around, there were thousands of them.

I didn’t know what to expect, I didn’t want to make an idiot out of myself, and I didn’t …
