My favorite aspect of being in a band is... Playing shows is definitely the best part. We get to show off all the work we have put into practicing and writing.

I've learned the most from... Musically, I have learned the most from my guitar instructors. Bill West first got me into guitar and taught me most of what I know. I've been teaching with Jason Fowler for a little over a year, and that helps push me to be a better musician all the time. It's a real honor to have learned from these guys. I've also had a lot of help from Matt Basler. He's helped us out with getting our album done, taking photos for us and making out merch. He's also given me a lot of tips on how to progress the band.

I'm most inspired by... Anyone who works hard at anything without fear of failure. You won't get anywhere with anything if you aren't willing to sacrifice and take risks. I'm lucky to know a lot of people that do that very thing.

What I like most about St. Louis is... All of the extremely talented musicians and the people that support them.

Some of my favorite local bands are... Tok, Rum Drum Ramblers, the Hooten Hallers, the Thin Dimes, Boreal Hills, the Maness Brothers, King James and the Killer Bee, and Kenshiros.

The St. Louis music scene could use... A bunch of rich assholes to blow a bunch of money on all of the great local bands so they can make a living off of doing what they love. Also, someone to buy and reopen Lemmons.

The best post-show food in St. Louis is... If I feel like splurging I will go get some French toast from the City Diner. Most of the time it's a cheap bowl of cereal in the comfort of my own home.

Dylan Clubb, lead guitar

My favorite aspect of being in a band is... Sometimes we get some pizza and drinks when we play shows. And the thrill of wondering if my equipment will be stolen every show.

I've learned the most from... Playing with other people and listening to as much music as possible have both taught me way more than any instructional methods I've tried.

I'm most inspired by... Nothing makes me want to play music like watching other people play music.

What I like most about St. Louis is... St. Louis makes damn good beer. Sometimes they give it to bands. Sometimes with pizza!

Some of my favorite local bands are... Tok is cool. I like Sleepy Kitty. I think Bruiser Queen is pretty neat, so is King James and the Killer Bee. Old Capital Square Dance Club has cool songs. Also, I'm pretty sure everything Big Muddy Records has ever released is perfect.

The St. Louis music scene could use... More people going to shows. Less people stealing equipment.

The best post-show food in St. Louis is... I'm still waiting for something to top Lemmons pizza.
