But just tees and stuff for me but the boys you know. Well deckers favorite drink is alcohol. And I think anything with alcohol it and it got water sickened they hydrated and water and alcohol of ours.

And so he was here and it was just so excited one of the things that he and I. Discussed was. Playing a smaller venue like thank you guys will be Al Gore's own is just super awesome as people can get right up in your face and super intimate. And then you've got the European press posturing of 171000 people act what do you like what's what's your favorite or or or you know kind of explain. The difference from your perspective be in the front woman. Am I why. Packet there's there's pros and cons to both 'cause again like its Internet when he gets that close setting in you can like. Really focused try to see every single person in the audience I'm onstage. And 171000 peoples really hard to do that to tell our guys like to play and looking and it's I don't like point every single person just I wanna get everybody back. You know like last time. I think they had it set up where we where in this fight fades and they had the music from the other bands. While the other bands reloading changing on means in so people. Had to go to the beard are and to get more alcohol and they didn't have any other choice but to listen to us because if yeah they're they're getting here this second line they have to watch and even if they plug their ears like they're the only event playing. But it is gay and actually ran into Randi blight because he and I met him. And Aaron to Hammond. I was just like yeah we're in Butte lake you know we're there at the gear guarded and I don't know he's really cool I met him at the Motley zoo animal rescue. That was like. That was so cool are they doing I believe they aren't even doing I am a lot of our a lot of our events lately and it's amazing how many green like adoption story as you'll you'll hear. And we put a picture of my dog and within like two days somebody has adopted yet there isn't exceed that hey yeah yeah yeah but so often. Oh gosh I think my heart melted my Zachary Taylor from Clinton on cuddling kittens like I'm back.

So it was just like anybody goes to an in animal. Motley zoo animal rescue that's where all the cool people right now is definitely where you'll see like rocks are turning things will huddle and other. How we ever so metal diet so metal aluminum panel. Actually just a couple weeks ago they were backstage at the slayer concert. And that was pretty hysterical looking at like you know slayer means. And here did their lead just fallen apart looking at easily can get the frame so awesome. And viewing it. EU we've mentioned a lot and then you're you're you're surrounded by guys you're you're an ad male dominated industry for the most part they're some pretty incredible like leading ladies of rock and I was at the mount Rushmore of rock we have. We have mixing here. We've got Lizzie hail. We have Maria brink we have Taylor moms and what would you save. For women who are looking up to you maybe like young aspiring female vocalist amber would you say kind of help motivate ended to keep fighting for the I'm liking like. The difference there's this it. Like that this females growing in the industry but there's really percentage wise not really that much of it like there's so many Margie its moon the fact my dad and mostly text but I have. But but ultimately you've got to own it just like the guys you know you've got it late show what you got a 110%. And give all you guys who work. So hard and because. Even if the guys have to prove themselves like if I want to ban whether it's got hired girl up there. I'm still gonna watch for the talent and like the passion I I really look for passion you can if you can feel what they're seeing little narrower field with their plane and that's really let Blake turns rule like fighting it out punch for example there. Here's some of the songs and it was cool but don't play with them on ship rocked and actually likes all the show. And aim at them and I really like. Just understood it and I've become a fan ever since you know awesome. It's amazing how much is seeing a live performance can change the way you perceive a band or a person or or you know appreciate their music more or anything like that. There is at one point I was never like really into Jane's addiction and you look at his arms and they never really I never really got it. And tell us on a plane pain in the past 2013 and I was like oh my god again you know and and then I became like just a die hard island forever album Nike ads. That. Sometimes it just takes that cool experience to really. You know. Out of your appreciation of a band or something that's Allentown. I'm more never tried it again being aggressive is on cell right now KI SW dot com. Nick see you you really do bring such energy to the show and we cannot wait to have you guys on the main stage. And they just means of a really great deal to us we like to think that you would find Seattle or white river and theatre to be your favorite place to play ever got really. What is like what's the one city where you've. Fine you get the warmest welcome. Wow that's a tough one and I will say events as far as any place than in a plane in the United States. Their red rocks. Just because it's like it's just are so earthly now that that's the hippie thing to say or something but it's just like. That the music bounces off rocks yeah like if that sounds really cool but. That that the last pain in the grass. It was one of those armament armaments the entire time around that's need to remember just being like. Just taking it all in and I still remember is still vividly like and I have the worst memory in the whole world yeah and I remember like. Give up their ire amber taking a deep breath and just looking around and just. You know and and we now when the boys and I actually pan out there playing means he needs this year first and I had to keep that seat karma I artists they. And wind I kept this secret as arrogant and their reaction. Don was there and their reaction. It was just like priceless they were out there all jaws dropped the all freaked out there are just like no way no way is for them to it was one of those just. I mean moments that feel. The energy and we watched who watch slip on and me we found them don't know of people on the news. Who's moving he told him to get Tim and to get out and this the whole entire place was. Like unite it it was beautiful yeah. That's I think I love that music is its agenda especially the rock communities such a special community where. We come together and we throw down we have a really great time and again get. There's a lot of you know mutual respect from people in the pit you know you don't see I mean of course some people are gonna end of wood medium minor injury of sorts but really take carried out there to you know it's not like super insane. We love each other we want more rockers not your Packers fan that gets us in embracing community and that's why the fact that we get to put on pain in the grass every year sell off because really that's the Washington's biggest rock festival. It is really cool I I remember sitting side statesman for I was playing watching all the people come. Out of the pit and earn back into it. And just the the look of like TS in their eye is he conceded there's like I'm gone for again I'm crowds sipping right now and Amy Amy you wanna do it. And in addition I don't know I always had a Arafat but there's there's been moments where like I really wanna see it staggering out but I don't know if that idea might get back to the states like. I finally like upgrade and got myself wireless our growth you suspend the Michael times I was really really committed to that cable. And phone down like OK I'm gonna grow up and be grown up and I think you know violence. So I can go out and the crowd in making on the pit so. I don't know maybe at this stage directing grassland that would be awesome again mark your calendars for August when he first and white river and the theater and in between now and then you as a new album coming out we have finally free is believed singled off of is is it someone it's someone.

Atlanta will not go way yeah you just surrounding the alleged hit weird Brothers all the time that got to what is your EIK I silly it's like the we have three ladies and we're outnumbered by. High gas and the three girls we actually started a podcast just have because like happily talk because no one gets you know like to get any patty lady.
