!Yes Indeed! Fest Tiger Beat Rundown: Bantam Foxes
As we mentioned a short while back, this coming Saturday, September 29th, marks the debut of !Yes Indeed! Music Fest. It’s up in Downtown, at side-by-side venues Dean’s & Notsuoh, and it promises to be an awesome, awesome show, running from 4PM ’til things wind down around 2AM.
In honor of the show, SCR decided to pick the brains of some of the esteemed bands who’ll be playing this weekend. And to do it, we decided to go with a tried-and-true formula: the questions the editors of Tiger Beat asked pop idols The Monkees way, way back in 1967.
Naturally, not everybody responded. We suspect most people just laughed, shook their heads, and deleted the email. But yes, a few were brave enough to bare their souls, including New Orleans’ murky, fuzzy-edged doom-popsters Bantam Foxes.
Here we go with their answers, and keep an eye out, because there’s more to come…
