So Bayside/Saves the Day was awesome! The show was grand, even while I was walking around on an untreated broken foot (I did eventually go to the hospital). The entire night was definitely a nostalgia trip, both bands playing songs I have treasured since my high school days.
I got the chance to interview Nick Ghanbarian, the bassist for Bayside.
We started off the interview in the Bayside/Saves the Day dressing room. Unfortunately, we scheduled the interview right during sound check, so I could barely hear Nick’s response to my deep, probing questions. So we took the interview outside. With all the cars whooshing by. Same problem. So listen CLOSELY…very closely.
Interview is worth it. Check it out below.
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.
