The Untitled Interview #194: Starring Dangerosa

So there's a little show going down this Friday night. You might have heard about it. One of the bands involved in this soiree is DC's own Dangerosa. Movers and shakermakers of a splendid brand of loud, expansive, chanteuse-driven noise with quite a few groove and psychedelically-inclined overtones, the band can and will tear up any stage you put them on. They're also some of my favorite local types. They are not to be missed. 

It was a late night post-practice when the band tackled the questions below, and their answers represent a collective speaking as one. Read on to see what floats their boat, from the Beatles to shutting the fuck up to the other, historical Dangerosa. And make sure you see this foursome get down to it this coming Friday at the one and only Velvet Lounge.
