I talk to Evan from Their/They’re/There about sounding like a basement from the ’90s and post-apocalyptic eye-patches. I also spin yarns about the second-to-last Rodan show and Todd Trainer’s disdain for yours truly.
The interview with Evan came as a surprise – it was something I had talked to the wonderful people at Polyvinyl Records about, but we weren’t able to confirm until I was on the air, doing my show that day. I’m so glad I did it.
Much like the interview, their show took me completely off guard, smacking me upside the head and turning me into a giddy, hoodied emo kid from the 90s. Aside from playing their entire catalog Their/They’re/There treated the crowd to a Superdrag (remember them?!?) cover, and closed out the show (and secured my love forever) with a cover of Superchunk’s “Detroit Has a Skyline”. Did I turn into the idiot at the front of the crowd screaming along? Of course I did. Old man’s gotta teach these kids how it’s done, right?!?
