Joey Cape

Anyone who has ever known me knows what a huge Lagwagon fan I am and how much I love Joey Cape and every musical project he does. In 2010, I was given the opportunity to street team for his band Bad Astronaut. It had been about five years since the death of drummer Derrick Plourde and Joey had announced that Bad Astronaut would play only a few shows. I didn’t want to miss this and spent a lot of time walking around with my young son in his stroller posting flyers for the show. It would be at this show that I would finally get to meet Joey Cape in person. Fast forward two years and here I am again finding out that Joey has a new band and is coming to town and needs a street team. 

Naturally, I jumped on it and sent off an email requesting more info. It then occurred to me that I could possibly get an interview. I sent another email requesting and interview and within a few hours I had my “Yes” response that I had been crossing my fingers for. Each day leading up to this moment seemed to drag on and on and take what felt like ages to get here, but then it came and I didn’t know what to do with myself.  When I met Joey at Brick by Brick they were just finishing their sound check. I approached him as he was exiting the stage and he immediately remembered me and gave me a huge hug. I totally melted, but quickly gathered myself together for this interview. I hope you all enjoyed it, I know I did.
