Just got back from interviewing Astronautalis at The Masquerade in Atlanta. This. Was. Awesome.
Before I get to the show, let me talk about the interview. This guy is completely fascinating to talk to (which might explain why the interview ended up going for almost an hour- had to edit the video down and cut it into three parts).
Now for the show- first, let me just say…the audience absolutely adores this guy (with good reason, let me tell you). If you can’t make it to a show, which I adamantly urge you to do, check out some YouTube videos of his live performances. You’ll get it.
Major highlight of the night was the famous freestyle that he does at the end of his shows. He chooses a few people from the audience to give him topics, and then he raps about them on the spot. It’s pretty dang awesome. And guess what? He rapped about Vinyl Mag. No big deal. We’re officially awesome.
Check out the interview below, and then get online, find his latest show, and get on over there.
Emily is an over-enthusiastic lover of music, books, movies, fashion, and culture in general. Her love of music spans across all genres (what is a genre anymore? she waxes poetic to herself), though she was nursed on true punk and will never understand “redneck country” music – tractors are not and cannot be sexy. Emily currently lives in Brooklyn, NY and considers herself to be a great wit, though she is still waiting on validation from a credible source.
