Fest 13

Interviews: Cayetana

Caves interviews Cayetana

Caves: Cayetana, that's a cool name! Where does it come from?

Cayetana: We named our band after a good friend of ours, Cayetano, because he's an awesome dude and a fantastic artist.

Caves: If Cayetana were breakfast, what would be on my plate?

Cayetana: Tofu scramble, potatoes and bacon.

Caves: Who in the band is most likely to break a bone?

Cayetana: Definitely Kelly

Caves: Be President?

Cayetana: Allegra

Caves: Land a plane in the event of the pilot passing out?

Cayetana: Augusta

Caves: Go to jail?

Cayetana: Augusta and Allegra would end up in jail together.

Caves: What are your karaoke songs?

Cayetana: Sheryl Crow – “If It Makes You Happy,” “Thunder Road” by Bruce Springsteen, “Rock Lobster” by the B52's, and “Juicy” by the Notorious BIG

Caves: When did you realise you wanted to be rock stars? And what career paths would you have chosen if music didn't exist?

Cayetana: We've always wanted to do this, since we were babies.

Augusta would have been an assassin, Allegra would've traveled the world with the Renaissance Faire, and Kelly would be a professional vagabond.

Caves: Is there a band (past or present) you want to play with more than anyone else?

Cayetana: Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros, Joy Division, No Doubt.

Caves: If y'all were captured by some bad wizard jerk who was threatening to transform you into an animal of your choosing, what would it be and why?

Cayetana: Augusta would be a seahorse so she could float around and never get pregnant, Allegra would be a bird of paradise, and Kelly would be a snapping turtle-- although she's always wanted to be a really fluffy animal so she could sleep on her own skin.

Caves: Can you sum up Cayetana with a haiku or a short rhyme?

Cayetana: 4 hours of talk/ 1 hour of rock/ around the clock...?

Caves: Are you coming to the UK soon?

Cayetana: Yes, please!

Scene Point Blank: What was your favorite experience at Fest 12, from a band perspective?

Cayetana: Our favorite experience as a band was playing for the first time and being surrounded by so many friends and musicians we love, and getting to take part in this community in a different way.

Scene Point Blank: What was your favorite experience at Fest 13, from a fan’s perspective?

Cayetana: Watching our friends from Philly do so well in a different city.

Scene Point Blank: Did you catch Caves’ set last year? What was your strongest memory?

Cayetana: Yes! It was awesome. We enjoyed watching Lou shred Augusta's guitar.

Scene Point Blank: Is there such a thing as too much PBR at Fest?

Cayetana: Maybe. Ask Augusta about her epic hangover.
