Over the weekend I got to be a guest on the Aliens With Gass radio show (which I’ve written about in the past for Phoenix New Times). Hosts Kevin Gassman and Heidi Gadd had me on to talk about the Vatican Observatory in Safford. We also digressed on other topics: the effects of aliens on religion, the potential non-existence of intelligent life throughout the rest of the universe, and other heady stuff.

My latest piece for Phoenix New Times is a piece on Deafheaven. I talked to their singer for a bit about their upcoming performance at FORM, how he keeps his voice in shape, and which bands would be Deafheaven’s dream tour-mates.

Coming up this Friday-Sunday is the FORM Festival at Arcosanti. Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith will be one of the many (very rad) artists playing the fest – I got a chance to interview her for Phoenix New Times.

A few weeks back I interview Michelle Shortt and Stu de Haan from the Arizona Chapter of The Satanic Temple about some of their recent charity and activist efforts (like the “Menstruatin’ With Satan” project). You can read it on PHX SUX.

I recently got a chance to interview Cameron Boucher from Sorority Noise (whose new album “You’re Not As ___ As You Think” is fucking stellar, to put it mildly). We talked about depression, jazz, and what it was like working with Mike Sapone.

Tonight is a one of a kind film event: the folks over at Exploded View Microcinema in Tucson are screening an 8-hour long, 16mm film print of Andy Warhol’s “Empire”! I got a chance to talk with David Sherman, co-founder of the microcinema, about Warhol’s work — it was an enlightening interview.
