This weekend, Milkboy in Philadelphia celebrated its 3rd Anniversary with three nights of free shows. One of which featured Kris Roe of The Ataris.
Before his set we had a chance to talk with Kris about porn shops, robberies, and his new call “Into The Wild”.
Keep up with The Ataris here and check out the interview below.
Before the show we were invited on the Pennywise bus to talk with lead singer Jim Lindberg about their recent reunion, the state of punk rock in 2014, and life as a dad.
I’ve been lucky enough to interview a lot of people, but rarely have I gotten to speak with someone who’s music has meant as much to me as that of Chris Carrabba. Dashboard Confessional soundtracked an important part of who I was when I first heard “The Swiss Army Romance“. While the world was getting sun tattoos and listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, I felt as though I found something deeper, and more true. It was alright to not only wear hearts on sleeves, but to own it and scream it.
All that being said, Chris hit Philadelphia with his new band Twin Forks on Friday, who in their own right are bursting with passion and possibilities. Before the show we had a chance to sit down and talk about the evolution of Dashboard Confessional and the new road ahead for Twin Forks.
