An Interview With Admiral Radley And Much Hilarity Ensued

AdRad

It’s always impressive when talented bands from the past marry and present us with new music from a fresh perspective. This is the case with Admiral Radley. One part Grandaddy and one part Earlimart makes for a whole lot of noise – but the good kind. With I Heart California, debuting in record stores July 13, the ever so sarcastic band member Aaron Espinoza fills us in on what’s so unique about this West Coast quartet.

You can judge for yourself when they play the Horseshoe Tavern on August 15.

It was the perfect way to spend a hot summer afternoon; rooftop party with free nachos, cheap beer, confetti, spray paint, and good Canadian music courtesy of the fine folks at Audio Blood.

Some even have to cross the Atlantic Ocean like the Danish dudes of The Blue Van. They played a good ol’ fashioned rock show at The Mod Club on June 16, to promote their new album Man Up. Backstage, Sticky contributor Natalia Buia had a candid conversation with Allan Villadsen (bass) and Per Jorgenson (drums) about commercial success, band comparisons and manning up.

NXNE 2010 Interview: Watching for We Are The City

We Are The City

One year ago, We Are The City were a very different band. They had never done a cross-Canada tour (they've now done multiple), they had never been part of a big music festival (they have now been part of both CMW and NXNE), and they had little to no money and publicity (they have now won the Peak Performance Project and with it $150,000). Not bad for a band of three 20-year-old guys from Kelowna, BC.
