Naseem Khuri: During “Mannequin Man,” Steve (our drummer) rotated between banging on a mannequin and screaming through a highway rubber cone. So, that one.
M&T: What was the experience like to be able to play with 6 different bands over the course of three nights?
NK: The main reason we wanted to do three nights at the Lizard was to be able to play with our friends. Getting up on Friday and Saturday mornings was amazing, as we were thinking “damn, we get to do that again…and we get to have different great bands to watch before we play…why can’t every weekend be like this…”
NK: Well, we got soy bombed. In other words, an unnamed shirtless assailant jumped on stage while we played a cover of Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues” and wildly flailed arms, danced awkwardly, etc. It was a salute to our Dylan cover set last year, which was a salute to the 1998 Grammy awards.
We may or may not have planned it…
NK: No idea! We won’t plan too much in advance, unless there’s a soy bombing.
