q: What is your favorite venue (in NYC, if applicable)?
tt: Shea Stadium.
nk: Shea Stadium is a really fun DIY space to play.
kd: If it’s strictly for sound, Radio City, and you will never have a problem seeing the stage. For playing, I thought Mercury Lounge was pretty darn fun.
q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?
nk: The variety of specialty pizza places opening up in NYC.
kd: Honestly, I think the things I’m most excited about are the artistic and musical projects that my friends are doing.
q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be)?
tt: My new dream is for our next tour van to also be a breakfast food truck where we would sell actual sharkmuffins (variety of flavors with guitar picks as fins) and the sharkmuffin drink (chocolate wine + cold brew iced coffee) along with our recorded merchandise.
nk: we are releasing a flexi-disc on Little Dickman records this Friday, Februay 12th at the Lost Room in LA featuring Lost Boy ? Davey Jones on guitar and Looms‘s Sharif Mekawy on drums. Next week we record our second LP, which will be our first album with our kick-ass drummer Kim Deuss.
