Who are you?
Dave: I am Dave. I am here to answer questions awkwardly, and play drums poorly.
Joan: Joan da bass player.
Who are you wearing?
D: Liquid Courage, by Anheuser Busch.
J: Ehm... what?
Tell us about your favorite party when you were in high school.
D: Once, when my parents, brother and sisters went away, I threw a week long party called Smilowpalooza. Windows were broken, virginities were lost. Potpourri was spilled. I had a friend tell me that vodka, milk and sugar was a real mixed drink. It's not. The dog had fun, though.
J: I didn't/don't party. I was/am a serious person. No, really.
Pool party or pizza party?
D: Pizza. Any party where I don't have to take off my shirt is a good party.
J: Pizza at a pool party, of course. But I wouldn't really know since I didn't/don't party. No, really.
What is power pop?
D: Bar music for lovers of beer and also for weirdos.
J: Duh. Power pop = Party Lights!
What is your least favorite Cheap Trick song?
D: "Surrender". It makes me want to purchase a car or panties or a household cleaner or something.
J: Probably "The Flame". What a stalker song!
What is the most pop thing you've done in your life?
D: Trying out to be a contestant on "World Series of Pop Culture". This is true. Pat Kiernan told me to shut my smart mouth. And then he spit on me.
J: As in popular? Gee...probably yoga. Ohm.
What popular current artist should cover a Party Lights song?
D: Rhianna should do "Desire". Because it would be terrible. And I want to hear a Caribbean robot sing songs about statutory rape.
J: Lamb of God. Most definitely. What do you mean that Lamb of God is not a popular current artist?
Favorite thing to do when you turn off the light?
D: Spend some quiet time thinking about all of the sins I've committed during the day.
What is your message for the kids?
D: Keep it kosher, kids.
J: Don't swallow gum.
