UK Police have been espe

Q: What was your first
concert experience?

A: I think I can probably
remember that it was an
Amy Grant concert. I grew
up on Amy Grant and oldies.
so Amy Grant came in con-
cert. and all I remember was

that one of my sisters got
pulled up on stage to sing in a
big choir of kids. I don‘t
know why they didn‘t pull me
on stage but I'm on stage
every night now so I guess it
doesn‘t matter.

Q: Who is your celebri-
ty crush?

A: Oh my gosh. you know
what. you know who it is? I
think it‘s Kirsten Dunst. I
never thought that I liked her
until the Spiderman movies.
Especially the second Spider-
man movie. But before her it
was definitely Gwenyth Pal-

Q: What was the first
record you owned?

A: Michael Jackson‘s
Thriller. And that was the
record — the actual record.
That kind of dates me too. I
guess. It was an Easter pre-
sent from my parents kind
of a weird Easter present. but

it was the best one present I
ever got.

Q: What‘s the best
Spring Break destination?

A: I‘m kind of a fan of
Colorado. I think. that going
to Breckinridge is the best
place ever There are a lot of
people around. and you can
ski; (there's) cool places to go
at night. For me. I grew up in
Colorado and I love the

Q: What is your fa-
vorite late night eatery?

A: If we're in the Mid-
west. Steak ‘n Shake. but if
we‘re needing a drive-thru. I
love to get a frosty and dip
fries in it You know what
else I do I do that‘s weird? I
eat whole peanuts in the
shell. You should really try it.

Q: What’s in your pock-
et right now?

A: Looks like some left
over merch money from last

night. $32 and some change.
and a lot of receipts. I save re~
ceipts. I don't know why. Also
a magenta Sharpie and some
green guitar pics. (pause)
This receipt is for $50 to fill
up my van! People need to
support me and buy some
stuff at the show so that I can
continue to fill my tank with

Q: What is the first
thing you think about
when you hear the word

A: Horses. That's kind of
a dumb answer. Okay -— fried
chicken. Honestly. I've never
seen a horse in Kentucky

Aaron Winters at 7 pm tomorrow at
The Dame. Tickets cost $5.

Continued from page i

Schwartzman (of Rushmore

A: He decided to leave the band to
become an actor. He was definitely an
attraction to the band but now that he

on our music. But I‘m glad he's doing

what he enjoys and wish him the best.

Q: You worked with David Fried-
man. who has worked with the
Flaming Lips and

Mogwai. What was that like?

A: Great guy. he‘s just a nerd that
loves music. The studio was in his
house in Illinois He made us work 12-
hour days that drove everyone crazy
and made us all want to get out of
there. but it was fun

Q: What was it like getting to
tour with a legend like Elvis Costel-

A: Every good word you could
think of. It's great that he's been doing
it for that long and still loves it. It was
great to get his approval and everyone
in the band was crushing on him the
whole time

Q: I noticed that on your newest
album you took a turn away from
pop rock and went for a more
garage rock sound. What inspired
the change?

A: Touring. (We spent) two years on
the road for The Guest. and we opened
for bands that are much harder than
(that album) You push yourself open-
mg for different crowds and such. so it
was iust a natural progressmn

Q: The acoustics in the (Single-
tary Center for the Arts) theater
you‘ll be playing here aren‘t really
meant for rock bands. What can we
expect from you in this setting?

A: Well. we‘ve played in that type
of setting before and it turned out OK
We'll try not to break anything

Q: What was it like changing
from club shows to playing arenas
when opening for Incubus?

A: Harder , much different than
clubs You have to exaggerate, jump

higher and play louder to get to every
one in the arena. I'm not used to it. but
(lead singer) Alex loves it. But the are,.
na shows made playing clubs much

Q: What is your favorite memory
from the road?

A: My birthday two years ago when

bass on Are You In? (and) then brought
out a big birthday cake,

A: Definitely Radiohead , they're
my favorite band.

your name in an interview on Late
Night with Conan O'Brien and
drummer Max Weinberg said.
"Now. this is a real band.” What
does that feel like?

A: Max Weinberg actually played
drums on the show with us. We played
“California" and Jason (Schwartzniani
played piano on the show. It's amazing
that a rock legend said that about us.
and Nebraska is my favorite album of
all time. But I guess there's no real way
to comment on what that feels like.

Q: How did you guys meet?

A: I went to high school With the
original guitarist. who isn‘t even in the
band anymore. I met Jason in elemen-
tary school and he met Alex in a music
shop. We all just sort of ended up in
the same room together with our in—
struments. we liked the same music
and had fun playing together,

Q: Have you all graduated from
12 guys in a van to a tour bus?

days look out. ladies

gether or does one person write
them and suggest it?

A: Alex comes up with most of the
songs. lyrics and melodies He‘ll tell Us

lot to make it work It usually takes
about a month to get a song down.

change it based on the crowd's reac-

Q: Are there any songs that you
