In what was probably the weirdest interview of our Lollapalooza weekend, we stopped in and chatted up a storm with Manchester Orchestra’s drummer Jeremiah Edmond on Saturday. Although a little tired and bewildered from the press, Edmond held his own and answered a variety of questions, which eventually evolved into a discussion about various pop culture, scaling as far back as Woody Allen, to as recent as the CW’s Gossip Girl. (One of the band’s tracks of their new EP will be featured on an upcoming episode.)
We’ll give him a break though. After all, his band rocked through a wicked tight set over at the Citi stage the day before, and while his other band mates relaxed, he had to face the gallows… us. We weren’t so bad though, and you can hear in this interview that we’re both enjoying ourselves a little too much. Plus, life wasn’t so bad. Edmond was able to enjoy a filling breakfast to kick off the day.
Keep a look out for everything Manchester Orchestra this year. As you will hear, they have quite the plans in store.
