The Untitled Interview #140 – BiMA.fest Edition: Starring The Sky Drops

It's just about that time, to once again venture up the I-95 corridor to partake in some Baltimorean musical hijinks at the BiMA.fest 2011. After last year's fun, my expectations are high. I spoke with a few of the bands you need to know about playing BiMA.fest this year about all things festivus.

I have wanted to see The Sky Drops for A. Very. Long. Time. Another of those bands with the Austin Psych Fest under their belt, The Sky Drops make some fearsomely fantastic noise. It's big and beautiful and sure to delight any fan of the shoegaze ouevre. I couldn't be more excited to finally see them live. Below, Rob and Monika muse on the art of the festival. If you're planning on being out and about tonight, please bring Monika some earplugs. Lord knows she'll need them!


Fuzzy Logic:
Inevitably, you will forget to bring:

Rob:
At times, I will forget fresh picks. I must have a fresh pick for every show.
Monika: Earplugs.

FL:
Band you're most looking forward to seeing at the festival?

R:
Applesauce.

M:
Along with touching base with some friends (like Gary B, Free Electric State, Thrushes, and The Stargazer Lilies), I'm interested in seeing The Pauses - the New Granada band from Orlando.


FL:
What's the first thing you plan on doing upon arrival in Baltimore?

R:
Check in with McNulty.

M:
Find some earplugs and use the lint roller.


FL:
What was the first festival you ever attended, either as a musician or member of the general public?

R:
South Hampton College - Smashing Orange.

M:
A 4th of July Festival in Memphis on Mud Island watching Booker T. & the M.G.'s = awesome.


FL:
Favorite thing about festivals?

R:
Performing.

M:
Dodging drum circles.

The Sky Drops play night two of BiMA.fest.
