interviewed Adam Baker of the much-blogged-about North Carolina band Annuals
. There's interesting conversation around the music scene in North Carolina, finishing high school, and choir robes and cat heads. Here's an exerpt of my favorite part of the interview:
BTR: What can one expect from your live show that they may not see with other bands? I hear at one point you have three guys playing the drums?
AB: You can always expect an immense amount of energy from all of us. People have fainted and blacked out. We try and give it our all. We go to shows a lot and we see bands that are not energetic…you can listen to an album anytime. Every song we play sounds different. We switch around instruments all the time. We all sing and all that stuff. You can expect six people giving their all.
Fainted? Stop. Read the rest of the interview.
If you're interested in possibly seeing a member of Annuals pass out on stage, make sure you catch their live show when they're in your neighborhood.
