Welcome to Take Five, a (semi-)weekly feature in which we ask Five Very Important Questions of a local band set to perform that week. Today it's Night Driving in Small Towns, who bring their slow-burning indie pop to the Earl tomorrow night.
1. Give me a brief back story of the band. Or, give me a brief band story involving backs.
Colby Wright: You've got that under control.
Andrea Rogers: I had back surgery right after my 18th birthday. I had to stay in bed for weeks, but I got really good at Street Fighter 2.
2. Which of the three is the superior Back to the Future film?
AR: The first one!
CW: Obviously, the first one. Hands down.
3. One time when I was night driving in a small town, I ran over an armadillo. Crazy, right? Ever done that?
CW: I've probably lowered the armadillo population in Georgia by four to five percent.
AR: I haven't run over any armadillos, but I have been chased off a friend's porch by a possum.
4. Who's your favorite Atlanta rapper?
CW: I prefer groups. Goodie Mob or Outkast, depending on what mood I'm in when you ask.
AR: Yeah. If I had to narrow it down, I really like Cee-Lo Green and Andre 3000 the most.
5. Tell me a joke that involves an animal.
CW: I really don't know any jokes that aren't too disgusting for print. You may have to take that one.
AR: This is really terrible, but here goes. A man goes to the doctor with a headache. The doctor diagnoses the patient with migraines, but the patient is convinced there is something seriously wrong. The doctor sighs and brings a kitten into the office. The kitten sniffs the man and then wanders away. The doctor repeats his diagnosis. The patient is confused, but goes to leave. When given his astronomical bill, he asks why it is so high. The billing specialist replies, "It was $200 for the CAT scan." WONK WONK!!!
Saturday, September 11. With Tealights, Jeffrey Butzer & the Bicycle Eaters. $7. 9:00 P.M. The Earl, 488 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-522-3950.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
Their fees were onerous, to say the least. $16 per ticket for "convenience," and it's…
That poster is for the Iggy Pop show on March 11 1983 @ 688 club…
oh sweet: just who i was waiting to get announced!
