Usually, we only interview one band for this feature, but given the chance to interview members of Soviet and The Longshots, to hell with regulations. Both bands will open for Pujol tomorrow at Dada, certainly one of the better shows this week.

Patrick MichelsThree days after getting back from Austin, I've still got a good post-festival buzz. With all apologies to NX35, it was by far the most fun I've had at a Texas music festival. Oddly, the rain didn't bother me all that much. It made things messy and uncomfortable, but it also kind o ... More >>
