The TA Live SXSW ’10 Q & A with Favorite Gentlemen’s Jeremiah Edmond

The TA Live SXSW ’10 Q & A with Favorite Gentlemen’s Jeremiah Edmond

Ticket Alternative is partnering with indie record label Favorite Gentlemen for a SXSW showcase at the Belmont in Austin, TX on Thursday, March 18. AMG sent Favorite Gentlemen president Jeremiah Edmond the SXSW ’10 Q & A. This is what he said.

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?

This year is different in that this is the first year I am attending only from the label side of things (Favorite Gentlemen) and not as an artist. That means I am not making my way out to Austin while already on tour OR making the long drive straight there and back. That changes the choice of travel music for sure.

Past van ride staples –
  • Kings of Leon – Aha Shake Heartbreak
  • Jay-Z – Black Album
  • My Morning Jacket – Z
As I am flying this year the music selection isn’t as major a part of the experience because its ability to keep you away and alert/alive or to inspire interaction and entertainment for the whole band isn’t the main priority. My playlist for the plan ride will probably just consist of new music that I need to check out.

On the list-

The TA Live SXSW Q & A with Trae Vedder of Death On Two Wheels

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.

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

Preferably the ones with Subways and McDonalds. We never refill our sweet tea at different locations. Read more about The TA Live SXSW Q & A with Trae Vedder of Death On Two Wheels
