Brent Netson of Built to Spill on the Wear and Tear of Long Tours and Truck Stop Meals

Although it's been nearly five years since Idaho indie rockers Built to Spill have released an album, the band continues to be a solid concert draw across the United States. Led by the enigmatic Doug Martsch, Built to Spill have featured several different lineups and this year is no exception.

Speaking from St. Louis and in anticipation of Thursday's show at the Granada Theater, guitarist Brent Netson talked with DC9 about the new additions to the band and how breaking in new members means some long, long practices.
