The Grand Archives are playing the Triple Door tomorrow night, but they’re also playing an in-store at Sonic Boom in Ballard today at 7 pm. It’s free. You can read an interview with Mat Brooke here.
So you go from your EP to your first show to signing with Sub Pop to a tour with Modest Mouse in, what, a year? How did you keep from losing your shit doing all that?
What do you mean by losing your shit [laughs]?
Well, it’s all happening very quickly…
Yeah, but I didn’t have much time off between Band of Horses and Grand Archives, just like there wasn’t too much time between Carissa’s Wierd and Band of Horses. It just felt natural getting back on the road and playing shows. Granted, it wasn’t the best feeling in the world not knowing how to play the songs and playing them before 3,000 Modest Mouse fans, but are you going to say, “No, we don’t want to go on tour with Modest Mouse?” No. You get out there and be ready, whether or not you really like it.
Right now you’re very much the focus of attention in the band…
D. Black, Jay Barz, Grynch, GMK, Neema of Unexpected Arrival, Kublakai, DJ Money D,DJ Swervewon, and DJ Marc Sense are at Chop Suey (and it’s free).
St. Vincent and Foreign Born are at Neumo’s (and it’s $12).
And (Hed)pe are at Studio Seven. Remember them? Yeah, I don’t either.
