q and also a :: Radical Dads

Robbie, Lindsay, and Chris of Radical Dads 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?

r: Turn Around (mp3) by Lunch.

l: Birds of Paradise Lost (mp3) by Conversion Party. Not only did I hear them play it live the other weekend at Cake Shop‘s 6th birthday party, my manfriend insists on scatting the bass line, so I continually hear his “interpretation” of it. That said, I still love the song.

c: My Purple Past the last song on side one of Deerhoof’s Offend Maggie. It was a wake-up call. I realized I truly have been living a purple life, and something needs to change.

q: What is your favorite beverage?

r: Vietnamese iced coffee.

l: I have a longstanding affinity for the classic Pimm’s Cup, especially as made by Ryan Seaton, who plays in Callers and tends a splendid bar at Roman’s. And with summer approaching, I imagine I’ll be consuming many gallons of the grapefruit-mint margarita from Taco Chulo, which is like a Greyhound (the non-dog kind) on spring break in Tulum. In the non-alcoholic realm, I really enjoy an unfiltered ginger beer.

c: Water served in a mug. I don’t like to see what’s floating around.

q: What is your favorite band to see live?

r: Architecture in Helsinki.

l: When I need some rock in my life, I reach for Little Gold. When I’m in an experimental post-psych drone-loop mood, it’s Blood Revenge all the way.

c: Les Savy Fav.

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

r: Diamond Mouth Surprise.

l: Cake Shop! They have the most charming graffiti in their bathrooms.

c: Alice Tully Hall. Best acoustics, hands down.

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

r: Anything happening at Desert Island in Williamsburg.

l: I’m going to double co-sign Robbie’s answers: Diamond Mouth Surprise‘s awesome reading/music/film series! And Desert Island. Wish I could get stranded there.

c: The Pale King by David Foster Wallace and the new Krallice album.

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

r: Blueberries!

l: It can only be expressed by the following emoticon… radical!

c: I’m trying to find time to make a sandwich.
