SPB: How do you feel about the hyphenated genre terms that tend to be applied to your band?
Jon: Genre descriptions are fine because people obviously want to know what a band sounds like before they commit time or money to it. But especially in punk, all the sub-genres and sub-scenes can get a little cliquey and silly. We've always tried to book lots of mixed bill shows -- a pop-punk band with some noisy acoustic metal -- to shake things up a bit. Those are the funnest shows anyway.
