7 Silly Questions w/ Iji!!

Iji is the genius indie pop creation of Seattle's Zach Burba. Charming, quirky, and completely endearing, his music will make even the staunchest indifferent hipster wiggle their hips to the infectious sounds. Given that Iji is releasing a new album Soft Approach on March 1st and gearing up for a monster month and a half tour of the East Coast, we are surprised that Zach had a free moment to answer our highly ridiculous questions.

What's the most embarrassing band you loved as a kid?
I really don't find anything that I listened to as a kid to be embarrassing. If anyone reading this wants to be embarassed for me over the fact that I used to really love Hanson and Savage Garden then that is fine, but last night I was driving home from Olympia and heard "Truly Madly Deeply" on the radio for the first time in years and was just awe struck by how awesome of a song it is.

What is the first record you bought?
I'm a young buck so the first albums that I had were on Cassette. I recall listening to Jock Jams and The Good Burger Soundtrack a lot in my bedroom with my little brother, but the first album that I actually went out and bought with my own money was "Let's Face It" by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. I use to listen to that one in elementary school on my walkman.

Unicorns vs. Narwhals? Who would win in a fight?
I would prefer to remain a voice for peace among animals. Pass.

What is the funniest thing that has happened to you on the road?
I can't really say that this is the funniest thing that has happened to me on the road, but, a few years ago I was touring with my friends Dogbreth from Pheonix, and we somehow got booked at an incredibly strange dive bar in Austin Texas. We showed up pretty late and found the place totally empty except for a small gathering of around 6 or 7 drunk metal heads having a bbq in the back yard. The club owner suggested we play out back since there was already a little crowd and we thought that was a great idea. We're down with metal heads. As soon as we started playing though these dudes started yelling and throwing things. It went on for a while and we just tried to have as much fun as possible playing our set to the 4 or 5 people that came to see us, while dodging beer cans and folding chairs. When one of the dudes yelled "Play Some Slayer, Pussies," Tristan from Dogbreth got on the mic and starting telling a story. "You know I was driving down the highway once and I got pulled over for speeding. The cop noticed that I had some metal cd's on my dashboard and asked me if I liked Slayer. I told him 'ofcourse! Slayer rules', and he told me he would let me go with a warning this time, but the joke was on him because I actually think Slayer is the worst fucking Metal band of all times. Slayer is COP MUSIC!" I couldn't believe that he said that to these huge dudes and they started getting really angry just stomping around and yelling. I was a little worried we were going to get whooped while unloading when one of the dudes approached us, but all he said was "Can I get a ride with you guys to Houston?" We let him know that there was no room and then we went and bought some wild, heavenly pizza slices down the street.

Who has the worst van etiquette?

Who is in heavy rotation on your iPod?
I've really only been listening to Longmont Potion Castle on my iPod. In Longmont Potion Castle 9 he calls a record store I used to work at and the dude who answers recognizes him. It's incredible!

What is the worst fight over nothing that you got into with each other after being road weary and exhausted?
Kevin from Math the Band and I once fought for a really long time on tour about whether or not Evil Dead 2 was supposed to be funny. I remember both of us being genuinely mad at each other about it.

Vivian Girls, Widowspeak, Eternal Summers & Heliotropes @ Music Hall of Williamsburg Live Show Review!

On Friday, Music Hall of Williamsburg hosted a stellar set of indie rock with legendary local icons Vivian Girls (their first NY show since 2011!) and Widowspeak, along with the up-and-coming Brooklyn bands Eternal Summers and Heliotropes.

Everybody's favorite shoe—that would be Converse of course—sponsored the free-with-RSVP event. I'm not exactly sure if it was required of performers to don the shoes, but it was probably mere coincidence that I caught Vivian Girls bassist Katy Goodman wearing a pair of ankle-high all-black converse. Sweet. I'm sure she was not the only one wearing them too, but I've always felt that winter is not the best time to wear my pair.

But I digress. It was a night of memorable performances, start to finish, although I missed most of the Heliotropes so I guess I can't really say that, but I'm sure they were great too! I've been a fan of them since discovering their cover of Roky Erickson's "I Walked with a Zombie." Oh well. Red Bull is apparently curating a new monthly showcase on trending local bands, and Heliotropes will be playing the inaugural event at the Bowery Electric this Tuesday for only $3—count me in.

For the performances I did see in full, all were pleasantly excellent and unique, I guess a little paradoxically, like every band in Brooklyn these days. And that's a compliment to the fact that I am fortunate to see so many great bands in one music scene. But because there's so much greatness going on at once, I was actually not too familiar with most of the acts, so I saw this show as an opportunity to see bands I have heard good things about across the blogosphere. In fact it was this very blog that named "You Kill" by Eternal Summers its favorite song of 2012. And I did know a lot of about Vivian Girls from a peripheral standpoint, enjoying associated acts like The Babies and the work of former bandmates Frankie Rose and Ali Koehler, who drummed for a bit with Best Coast.

I won't bore you with my vapid observations, but here were two noteworthy things: two of the bands were entirely female, and all leading vocalists were women. I really hope that we're at a time in music where no one will think twice about that, because this wasn't a showcase of great female musicians. This was awesome rock, period.

The second observation is that the drummer for Eternal Summers looks like he could play Sabretooth in an X-Men movie, and I'm very jealous about that. Check out my photos if you don't believe me.

And don't forget to check out my photos of Vivian Girls and WIDOWSPEAK too!

Live Show Review - Punks On Mars/Dinowalrus - Shea Stadium BK Feb 2nd

When I heard that Punks on Mars, the glam punk band I profiled in our Bands That You Should Like feature, would be performing at nearby Shea Stadium I decided to check them out for myself and see how they perform live. I wasn't wrong to liken the band to The Clash either; Sandistina played on and off throughout the night between sets. Both bands I saw were awesome in their own right, and I wish I had gotten there earlier to see the other performances as well, including a DJ set by Diiv bassist Devin Ruben Perez. The crowd thinned out by the time the last openers Dinowalrus finished playing, but I'm still glad I made the trek despite the mild blizzard that hit New York Saturday night (which in all fairness is probably why the crowd was a little small, even for this tiny loft venue). Look out for a live recording of the show on the Shea Stadium website; they record and release every performance at the venue!
