Q1. Most wild and crazy thing you have done thus far in your life?

A1. I rode my bike at night with the Wolf Pack Hustle years ago.  Less than 2 blocks into the ride, I rode straight into a pothole and was launched over the handlebars of my bicycle.  I ended up with two pins in my pinky and six stiches in my face.  It was awesome.

Q2. Whats the most interesting thing you found lying on the street/sidewalk/ground/random place?

A2. $20. I was 10 years old. My two older brothers and I were walking home from school in the San Fernando Valley, and I caught sight of it. They took it from me and insisted that we buy baseball cards with it. I didn’t get to use any of the money for myself.

Q3. How many car accidents have you been in?

A3. At least 10. I have a knack for hitting inanimate objects (dumpsters, parked vehicles, etc.)

Q4. Do you have a phobia?

A4.  Acrophobia (irrational fear of heights). The older I get, the more intense the fear.

Q5. If you could morph into any animal what would it be?

A5.  A cat.

Q6. What was your childhood ambition?

A6. Decline to answer.

Q7. Have you ever been in a food fight?

A7. Yes, in 3rd grade. I was suspended from Hebrew Day School for one day.

Q8. If you had to give up one of your 5 senses, which one would you abandon?

A8. Smell. As a male, I already suffer from a bad sense of smell. I can’t miss what I’ve never really had.

Q9. What do you wish was invented?

A9.  A “waste black hole,” to put all the trash of the world in so that it can no longer pollute the earth.

Q10. Do you have a childhood memento you keep with you always?

A10. A picture of my bandmate from when we were 12 years old. It’s adorable and prominently displayed on the refrigerator.

I have a tendency to talk about things I know nothing about. Take The Pity Party for example, their music has a late 90’s Lower East Side sound to them. But if you asked me to compare it to another 90’s group I can’t name one, all I can say is I think “Love Lies” could have fit in perfectly on the tv show Buffy The Vampire Slayer’s soundtrack  (which is my favorite show of all time – I love that soundtrack, so that’s quite a compliment). And I’ve never been to NY’s Lower East Side, but I know a bit about it and there is a basement bar quality to the hypnotic voice of singer Julie Edwards. It seems lately the LA music scene seems to be saturated with a vintage beach/ surf sound, so it’s refreshing to be torn from this “California” sound and hear something a bit more grity.
