CHIRP's Dylan Peterson caught up with Aaron Maine of Porches before his band played a sold out Subterranean. They talked about the way Dev Hynes encapsulates the embraced outsider in New York music, being scared at rest stops when touring through rural America, and having a personal style that could offend the sensibilities of Trump supporters.
Touring in support of their debut full-length, The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us, Beach Slang made it through a winter storm just in time to headline the Subterranean. Before their set, Amanda Roscoe Mayo talked with frontman James Alex about how punk connects people regardless of age, falling down the rabbit hole of Tiny Desk Concerts, and the importance of books.
CHIRP Radio’s Katie Owens met up with Chicago rockers, Tall Walker, for an exclusive CHIRP Radio interview in Noble Square. Tall Walker spoke about expanding the band for live shows, its connection with Christian music, and its dramatic writing style.
Tall Walker released its self-titled EP in December 2013 and will play Subterranean on May 1 as part of CIMM Fest 2014.
