1. What outside show would you rather play: Coachella or Lollapalooza?
Coachella. It’s closer to home so more friends and fans could enjoy the experience with us.

2. The one thing you are looking forward to the most this summer?
Being on the road with Terraplane Sun for almost 20 days is going to be amazing. I think the over under on someone doing jail time is 5/2.

3. Favorite beach in San Diego?
OB. Surfed there a lot when I was younger so I’m biased.

4. What band are you looking forward to seeing the most at the Fiesta Del Sol?
It’s a toss up between Terraplane Sun and Little Hurricane. They both make really amazing music.

5. Describe your band’s sound in one word.
Ishakemyhairbackandforth

The Rapture – “In The Grace Of Your Love”

1. What outside show would you rather play: Coachella or Lollapalooza?
Lollapalooza, because for me personally, it seems more of a ‘rock n roll’ vibe… and it used to be my favorite festival… I remember seeing Jane’s Addiction for the first time there in ’92!

2. The one thing you are looking forward to the most this summer?
Going to Baja California for a little R&R and to play a couple of shows on the beach

3. Favorite beach in San Diego?
This is top secret information. If everyone knew about it, it wouldn’t be my favorite anymore! It is my favorite though because I can walk to it.
