"Patron on ice in the dressing room!"
Which of your pals played Coachella this year?
"M. Ward, Dawes, and The Watson Twins sang back-ups with The Shins (The Watson Shins!)."
Was there anyone new you really wanted to check out?
I want to say Azealia Banks, but i hope I'm not the C-word she wants to ruin!"
What were your most (and least) favorite parts of the fest?
"Arcade Fire's balls! I got stuck in the giant corral of inflatable LED balls at last year's festival. I was surrounded by hundreds of balls! Myself, Ezra Koenig, and Jenny Eliscu helped throw them into the crowd, and it was magical! Then, driving home afterward, you could still see them blinking in the back seats of cars...I'd say the only real bummer about any festival is the porta potty situation — especially if you're wearing a onesie!"
What's the most amazing vintage purchase you've made recently?
"A sweet pair of '70s Levi's 517s."
What do you have coming up next?
"Well, I'm writing songs for a new solo steez, and scoring the music for my friend's movie, so there's lots of exciting things coming up!"
