After the scary incident at the Ottawa Bluesfest last week put a halt to the start of Death Cab’s North American tour, they’re surely eager to finally play their first show in Ohio tonight. In the meantime, Ben Gibbard sat down to talk with UK based online music magazine, Gigwise and Canadian newspaper, National Post.
The Gigwise interview, which you can find here, is worth the read at the very least to make fun of the completely aloof interviewer. This music scholar stupidly asks Ben about the “emo movement,” to which he politely replies “I’m not really the best one to know how it’s changed or evolved because it’s not something I’ve really paid attention to.” Next time try doing more than reading a Wikipedia page before you interview someone.
The National Post interview is a little more heavy, and touches on Ben’s recent sobriety. You can read that one here.
Finally, good luck to the guys tonight in Ohio! I hope this show is free from flash hurricanes and collapsing stages.
