Two Dylans got together backstage at Thalia Hall to talk about ghost stories, zines at Quimby's, and rock and roll parents. Dylan Baldi is the frontman of Cloud Nothings, and Dylan Peterson is the Features Director at CHIRP. Cloud Nothings' 2017 album Life Without Sound is out now on Carpark Records.
Ryan DeRobertis sat down with CHIRP's Cher Vincent before his headlining show at Schubas to talk about transitioning from Saint Pepsi to Skylar Spence, writing narcissistic songs about fake birthday parties, and embracing the "anti-drop" in electronic dance music. Prom King was one of Cher's top 10 albums of 2015.
Before DJing for nearly four hours at Smart Bar, Chaz Bundick met up with CHIRP's Dylan Peterson to talk about his new dance music project, Les Sins. Chaz discussed the ways in which Toro y Moi has brought him unprecedented opportunities and life experiences, from DJing at world-renowned night clubs and collaborating with other highly respected artists, to adoring fans coming up to him on the street to tell him about his impact on black culture. His first full-length as Les Sins, Michael is out now via Company Records.
