I feel like I somehow inadvertently saved the best for last. Viva was my very last interview of the weekend, and they were completely nice, completely funny, poised and full of all the information I wanted to hear. They really made me feel good about interviewing, since as I mentioned before, this was pretty much my crash course weekend in it.
What you don't see in the video is Kevin picking me up at the end. I had completely flubbed up a special highfive he tried to give, and when we went to redo it, he surprised me by picking me up, squeezing me with a bear hug, and planting a huge kiss on my cheek. Talk about a band you want to hang out with later.
Uhm, talk about an appropriately named band, that Robin Pecknold is a fox. But I better not say that since my boyfriend is sitting nearby [and also videotaped this interview...]
I think my banter with Fleet Foxes is some of my favorite out of the weekend. They were really having a conversation with me, rather than tense "interview talk" that people fall into when they know they're being recorded. I also thoroughly enjoyed their set later on in the afternoon at the EMP Sky Church.
