The Untitled Interview #143 – BiMA.fest Edition: Starring Bobby E. Lee and The Sympathizers

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.

Friends, I was at the Ottobar last night, and I had the extreme fortune to see some of the musical mayhem laid forth by Bobby E. Lee & The Sympathizers. They put on one heck of a show, and had the kids dancin' and hootin' and hollerin' and all sorts of misbehavin'. Yours truly was mighty impressed. Below, some answers sent to me collectively, and gives you an idea of the mindset of these Baltimore honky tonkin' swamp rockin' Virginia reelin' fellers.

Fuzzy Logic: Inevitably, you will forget to bring:

Bobby Lee & The Sympathizers: 'nuff whiskey.

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

BL&TS: The Baltimore String Felons, and 'specially The Matromonials- those boys have some tasty licks.

FL: What's the first thing you plan on doing upon arrival at the festival?

BL&TS: Tyin' up the mules and kickin' ass.

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

BL&TS: Does pappy playin' banja on the back porch count as a festival?

FL: Favorite thing about festivals?

BL&TS: Oh, the hos, definit'ly the hos.
