I got a chance to interview one of my favorite musicians/artists/carny barkers for the Phoenix New Times. The Slow Poisoner opened up about his dreams, politics, and why he doesn’t work with “grandmas.”

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.
