AMG SXSW Q & A with Trae Vedder of Death On Two Wheels

[ 0 ] March 16, 2010 |

We’re always happy when bands we love start making the transition from local band to touring band to signed band. Atlanta’s Death On Two Wheels has made those transitions. Recently signed to Favorite Gentlemen (Manchester Orchestra, All Get Out, Kevin Devin), Death On Two Wheels has had a rather enjoyable ride. As the lads prep for an exciting week of music in Austin, we sent our SXSW Q & A to DO2W front man, Trae Vedder.

You’re soon to be on the road to SXSW! According to Google maps, the trip from ATL to Austin = approx. 16 hours driving. What are your three essential road trip albums?

The WhigsMission Control
Wilco – Sky Blue Sky
Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story Soundtrack

Fast food, gas station snacks, local diners – where are you most likely to stop for grub on this trip?

Pilot & Loves.
Preferably the ones with Subways and McDonalds.  We never refill our sweet tea at different locations.

There is a band playing at every venue, bar and BBQ joint in Austin – who are you most excited to see?

Dawes, Danielson, Andrew W.K., Ezra Furman & The Harpoons, Madi Diaz, The Walkmen, 40 Watt / Athens Party, Wax Fang
