q and also a :: Marie Stella

Bryan and Matt of Marie Stella sent us these answers to our questions in this next installment of the q and also a series.

q: What is the last song you (really) heard?

b: Some jam band song I can’t even identify. The music selection at my local coffee shop can be pretty bad sometimes.

m: “Never As Tired As When I’m Waking Up” from LCD Soundsystem, on vinyl, in the wee hours at a rad party!

q: What is your favorite beverage?

m: Kahlua Mudslide.

q: What is your favorite band to see live?

b: It’s a tie between Liars and Flaming Lips.

m: Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.

q: What is your favorite venue in NYC (if applicable)?

b: Union Hall was my favorite for a long time, because I used to work there. These days… Fort Useless! Santos Party House is pretty great too, in a funhouse of debauchery sorta way. Though I’ve always been a fan of Bowery Ballroom, and I’ve had a lot of great (late, very, very late) nights at the Delancey, Trash Bar, and Pianos. I really miss a few venues that I spent a lot of time at a few years back: Rothko, Sin-e, Northsix, and Tonic all have a special place in my concert-going heart. I left New York right before the big diy venue explosion really happened.

m: Trash Bar

q: What piece(s) of culture are you really really excited about right now?

b: I went to see the Justin Beiber movie. I considered it a cultural exploration.

m: Not sure which “culture” they mean… realistic 3D movies

q: Anything we should know about your latest project (whatever that might be)?

b: We just made new shirts! We’re continuing to record and release digital singles, and should get working on a full length album in early 2012.
