Interviews with Isotopes and Anchoress

1:00pm - 2:00pm

Hello Hello Hello my friends!

Recently I did two phone interviews in one show, this time I did two in-studio interviews. It’s wasn’t very easy to pull off logistically, but it turned out to be a pretty fun hour.

First interview was with Evan from local pop punk band called Isotopes. Isotopes is the greatest band in the world to sing about baseball. All their songs are about baseball related topics and even I’m not very familiar with this type of sport, but I really love the concept and obviously their songs. Band’s new Blood Diamond 7” is out and the Release Party is happening at The Media Club this Friday, May 11th with Greenback High, Keep Tidy, Joyce Collingwood.

Second interview was with local post-hardcore band called Anchoress. Anchoress just release their brand new album called Crime & Compass and the CD Release Party is happening on Saturday, May 12th with The Jen Huangs, Northern Guard, Mete Pills, One Life Animal.
