Congrats on your 10th anniversary! What are some of your most memorable moments over the last decade?
Wow, there have been so many. Playing to 40,000 people at a fundraiser at the Sydney Cricket Ground a few years back was a highlight. In Australia at that time we were just kinda crossing over from the underground to the mainstream I guess, and the place was filled with kids going wild. We came on at the end of the day just as a huge storm was rolling in. Looking out at that stadium seeing all those kids jumping around in the rain whilst lightning was striking all around in the distance was an experience I’ll never forget. But then again, all the little shows playing tiny clubs around the world have also been crazy fun too.
You’re playing Brooklyn’s Warsaw on Halloween as part of the Check Yo’ Ponytail tour. Have you given any thought to costumes?
Somehow this is the 3rd Halloween party we’ll play in the US. In previous years I’ve gone a Clockwork Orange Droog and before that I went as Steve Irwin Crocodile Hunter. Haven’t put any thought into this year’s costume. I know you guys take Halloween very seriously over there!
