Artist Interviews Vampire Weekend

Dylan Peterson met up with Vampire Weekend's Chris Baio at SXSW 2013. In addition to playing bass for one of the most popular indie bands in the world, Chris is also a DJ and producer. Dylan and Chris talked about how DJing can keep a rock star humble, the benefits of going bowling on the weekend, and the possibility that Vampire Weekend might be the Dave Matthews Band of the next generation. Modern Vampires of the City releases May 13th on XL.

Artist Interviews Poolside

Summer is almost here, which means the daytime-disco of Poolside will soon be gracing mixtapes and DJ sets everywhere. CHIRP's Dylan Peterson got to hang out with Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise after one of their many shows at SXSW in Austin. The guys derided goa trance (then retracted and reversed their opinion), explained how Youtube helped them learn how to cover Neil Young's "Harvest Moon," and declared Body Count's "Cop Killer" the summer anthem of 2013.

Artist Interviews Chad Valley

Oxford's Hugo Manuel is Chad Valley. Before his first headlining Chicago show at Schubas, he sat down with CHIRP's Dylan Peterson to talk about why indie kids are getting over pretention and getting into R&B, when solo artists turn into collaborators (and vice versa), and how a bedroom pop guy can get to know more girls.

Chad Valley is playing at Schubas with Chandeliers and Ghost Beach on Sunday, April 21st. 'Like' CHIRP on facebook this week for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the show!
