Episode 12. John Booker & Rachel Hirsh (BRUXES, I Was Totally Destroying It)

We’re back to prowling the local scene after Hopscotch (minus Dave this week) with guests John Booker & Rachel Hirsh (BRUXES, I Was Totally Destroying It, 120 Minutes). We talked about playing shows as a cover band, touring and recording with Motion City Soundtrack, and how hip hop is the only genre testing limits in this day and age. There’s also a distinct emo theme to this episode.

Check out BRUXES and I Was Totally Destroying It. Also, be sure to hit up Deep South The Bar, where John books shows, for some live music, especially on 9/22 for Get Sad Y’all, Raleigh’s first emo night.
