The most rockin' band at Lolla talks to 88Nine: An interview with The Orwells

At their set yesterday afternoon, Mario Cuomo took his pants off, unplugged the mic and launched it into the crowd, and came back to do  cover of The Stooges I Wanna Be Your Dog, after stage hands began tearing down their equiptment because the crowd would not stop calling for an encore. Naturally, I had to get an interview with these guys. The thing is, in the press tent there is an unwritten rule that you cant just grab a band who is walking around the press tent, because they always have an interview that they should be doing. I couldn't let that stop me. I saw them end a photo session and went right for it. Here is the interview that I grabbed. 



Here is a link to The Teenage Head, the blog that we talked about. It's a great blog.
