One Question Interviews: Burning Love

Chris Colohan (Burning Love)

SPB: Basements or bars (or both)?

Colohan: Basements, no contest. Shit, house shows in general. Despite the downsides (blown fuses, angry neighbors, cops...), any unreasonably small space where the noise is overwhelming, people are crammed in an inch from each other's faces and the energy in the room has nowhere to go but through them always trumps an overambitious, half empty bar where the spectacle is so standardized. There are a lot of great bars and clubs that I love dearly, but you definitely never forget a time you played in a third floor bedroom, kitchen, or stairwell with all your amps and 30 kids crammed into it. I'm definitely a basements man.
