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.
