What's the most memorable food you had on tour?
Probably Szechuan Province Chinese food - including and especially: a spice that makes your entire mouth go numb. Also once Dean accidentally ate a bunch of glass, but I guess he didn’t die. Maybe he’s a magician? Dean is a magician.
What's a tv show that got canceled that you wish never ended?
Arrested Development - except that they did bring it back, and when they did, it was bad. Really makes you think: perhaps things (TV Shows, Bands, Bad relationships, etc) should just end when they're supposed to end, and not do annoying cash-grab reunions. You know, unless the money is like REALLY GOOD.....(ok fine we’ll play Pop Montreal in 2030 for 1000 bottles of drinkable water)
What is the absolute worst show Hollerado ever played?
One time in Winnipeg we had a Festival show and a club show afterwards, that same night. We had completely forgot about the club show, and so we didn't have any gear. What we did was air-band: playing our album over the PA, we pretended to play, on stage, with literally no instruments whatsoever. Most of the audience left. The dozen or so audience that stayed almost thought we were as funny as we thought we were.
It was all fun and games until we asked the promoter to pay us our guarantee. He reached into his pocket with a huge grin and then took out "Air-Money". He even counted it! "$100, $200, $300!", he said, as he placed the imaginary bills into our outstretched hands...
Tell us about the worst break up a member of Hollerado ever had.
That’s amazing that pop Montreal is partnering with TMZ for this years fest. Where did you guys meet?
Which 3 broken up bands would you like to be trapped on a deserted island with?
The Weakerthans x3, as long as the island wasn't in the middle of Manitoba in the winter...
Or maybe KISS because Gene Simmons would have an army of private helicopters come pick everyone up... KISS is broken up at this point, right!?!? (I hope they are)
