Last week, I got the chance to chat with Chris Carrabba (of Dashboard Confessional and Further Seems Forever fame) about his new band, Twin Forks. During the interview, Carrabba opened up about his long-held aspiration to pursue folk music, the slow and steady formation of the new band, an upcoming tour with Augustana, his current feelings about his other musical projects, his opinions on the modern mainstream folk resurgence, and his friendship with Butch Walker. Check out the interview here and the review of the new Twin Forks album here.

Looks like Butch Walker played a couple of new songs at his show at London's Borderline last night.

Following up on a tweet from earlier tonight, I started (and finished) reading Butch Walker's Drinking with Strangers book this evening. Gotta love birthday presents. I've got to say that anyone in a band, especially those curious about the highs and lows of the music industry (and its shifting dynamic) should definitely check it out. And for anyone that has any sort of interest in the pop/rock/punk wave of music, Butch's career, or the behind the scenes stories of one of the most important producers and song-writers in music, let alone our scene: it's a must read.
