They are scheduled to play Sunday along with all the weekend’s indie rock acts. Stay tuned for more interviews from this yearâ€™s artists leading up to the festival.
TBB: You seemed to have a lot of success right out of the gate, and you have continued to be successful. How does it feel?
We starting to get into our mold, bigger shows. Itâ€™s still really exciting every day. We are going on tour with Interpol. Playing Treasure Island is exciting. I am happy we are playing festivals. I am happy we are playing Treasure Island especially. We havenâ€™t played many festivals in the U.S. Itâ€™s fun to see people you like.
TBB: Are there any bands you particularly want to see?
There are a lot of great bands playing. Belle and Sebastian are playing. Thatâ€™s like icing on the cake for me. Thatâ€™s my main riff.
