Our newest feature here at Scene Point Blank is our semi-daily quickie Q&A: One Question Interviews. Follow us at facebook or twitter and we'll post one interview every Monday-Thursday. Well, sometimes we miss a day, but it will be four each week regardless.
After our social media followers get the first word, we'll later post a wrap-up here at the site. This week check out Q&As with members of Swingin' Utters, Birthday Suits, The Brokedowns, and website More Than Sound Collective.
Darius (Swingin’ Utters)
SPB: What’s the first thing you do when you get home after a long tour?
Darius: I go to the Taqueria Vallarta on the west side of Santa Cruz!
Hideo (Birthday Suits)
SPB: What do you like to do on an off date during a tour?
Hideo: It's depend on where. If it's in a bigger city, I'd like to eat something good and walk around. If it's in a smaller city, I just stay in a hotel and enjoy free internet. And if they have a swimming pool, I'd go to swim too.
Kris Megyery (Brokedowns)
SPB: How has parenthood changed playing in a band for you?
Megyery: This question was sent on June 6th which happened to be the day my 2nd son was born....Did you plan that? Are you a warlock?
Parenthood hasn't changed playing in a band too bad for us because we're not a full-time band in any way, so it's not like our touring schedule has been interrupted or anything. In fact, it has created an excellent excuse to get out of doing things...We are lazy swine.
The most obvious way it changed for me is that I drink way less at shows. Taking care of a baby while hungover on 2 hours of sleep is torture worse than being waterboarded while fire ants devour your legs.
Mario Parra (More Than Sound Collective)
SPB: What’s a record you love that would surprise people?
Parra: I've always considered my taste in music to be diverse, in a limited sense; I never stray too far from pop punk, hardcore, ska punk, emo, and the like, basically because nothing else speaks to me in the same way. Aside from what occasionally appears in my news feeds, I don't have any ties with pop culture. If there's one album in my library that I love and might surprise people, it's probably Failure's Fantastic Planet. I'd be amazed, but glad, if anyone in the pop punk scene is familiar with the band. "The Nurse Who Loved Me" is an incredible song. It's one of those alternative/space rock albums that I discovered when Angels & Airwaves introduced me to a different type of music, years ago. I guess you could say that I don't really have any guilty pleasures.
