As 2014 wraps up, I'm cleaning up and gathering together the loose ends. Here are the pieces I've done for the Observer in the last few months.
An interview with Travis Stever of Coheed and Cambria. Just like my interviews with his bandmates Josh and Claudio, Trav was super-nice and friendly.
An interview with Gary Louris of the Jayhawks. Coupled with my first piece for the Observer, which was a review of a Louris/Mark Olson show, and my interview with Mark Olson, this was a full-circle kind of experience.
A feature on Dead Flowers. My third time to spotlight these guys, and they are such a worthy band.
Lastly, a memorial to Evan Chronister, written for people that didn't know him.
One other thing: I went to Los Angeles in November to be a guest on a podcast called This Is Rad! Co-hosted by Kyle Clark (who has been on many Nerdist podcasts). We talked about post-hardcore/emo and had a great time. You can download it on iTunes, but you can also stream it here on Stitcher.
