I recently sat down for a cup of chai tea w/soy, with the talented Aaron Pillar of “The Appleseed Cast“. We discussed emo, Sagamartha and what a beautiful home he has! His pet ball python took quite a liking to me…xoxo…and his collection of miniature spoons was impressive. Ok, so I’m full of shit and if any of you hipsters know enough about the present and future of indie music, it’s all about the internets, baby. But these guys were kicking it before the MySpace and the Facebook. Their music rocks, and if you have any plans other than Mohawk on Saturday night, cancel them. BTW-You can tell a great deal about someone through the amount of ellipses they use…

Austinites can checkout The Appleseed Cast this Saturday, February 7th at Mohawk with True Widow and Calm Blue Sea (outside, starting @ 9:00pm).

(In addition to the ellipsis, also take note on the lack of quotes in most of Pillar’s typed words. He’s very straight to the point and wastes no time with the petty use of proper punctuation.)

…………………………………………interview…………………………………………

Stacie: You guys were putting out albums before “emo” was an everyday term. How would you define emo when you were just getting into the music scene?
Aaron: It was certainly different I guess, for me the reason I started playing in this “scene” was access. I saw house shows and bad equipment but people having a good time, and you didn’t have to be an amazing player either..I guess it was easy to love it, easy to be a part of…

Stacie: How would you define emo in today’s environment? (bonus points for including the words “eyeliner” and “girl pants”)
Aaron: Tight pants are ok if you can pull it off, but eyeliner is lame…Emo is a selling point plain and simple…its money always about the money..

Stacie: If you were to die tomorrow (sorry if I jinx you in any way), and you could only be remembered for one song, what would it be? (and why?)
