5GB With The Interns; Playing The Earl, Jan. 25th

internsAthens indie rockers, The Interns, joined us for our 5GB series before their upcoming show at The Earl.

What’s the first gig you ever attended?

The first show I ever attended was Travis Tritt at the NFL Experience before the 1994 super bowl at the Georgia Dome. Really inspired my musical development.

What is the best gig that you ever played/performed?

We got to play Bonnaroo in 2011 to a crowd of 4,000 or so in my other band (Futurebirds), that was probably the best gig if you’re talking strictly crowd size, exposure, etc… We’ve gotten to play tons of smaller clubs that have left us feeling just as good though, most of the time as long as the crowd suits the room then we’re gonna feel good about the energy.

What is the best gig you have ever seen?

Fleet Foxes at the original Georgia Theater (before it burned down) is hard to top. One of the last shows I saw at the old theater, it was on the tour for their s/t full length in 08 or 09. The theater was packed to the brim and completely quiet and attentive. That NEVER happens in Athens. It was an amazing show and one I’ll never forget.

Gig you would most like to play?

Hard to say there’s one gig I’d most like to play. Some of the bigger places we have played have been the most dissappointing, for whatever reason, but Red Rocks would be pretty sweet, or Pompeii.

What would be the lineup for your dream gig?

hat’s really hard to say, can’t foresee a dream gig taking place without Bowie though.

Catch The Interns at The Earl.
