I need to stop interviewing people I’ve admired for years. It’s hard to control the fangirl when I do, and then I just embarass myself.
I met up with Eve 6 in front of Red 7 for our interview, and as soon as the band came out of thier van and introduced themselves to me, I freaked out (well, on the inside).
You gotta understand. This band defines my high school years. I’ve followed this band since “Inside Out.” “Here’s to the Night” is still my jam. I still listen to “Think Twice.” I <3 this band like whoa.
I did tell them that I was a long-time fan and was trying really hard to keep it together for them. They were cool with it.
But seriously, I gotta keep that fangirl in check.
Q&A: Eve 6
’90s rock band to release a new album after nine years
Originally published on March 21, 2012
Believe it or not, this year was the first time Eve 6 performed at South by Southwest Music Festival (SXSW). The band that brought us the sing-alongs “Inside Out” and “Here’s to the Night” has played in Austin before, but never during the week-long festival. Eve 6 chatted with UWeekly during SXSW to discuss the upcoming album Speak in Code, which comes out April 24, and how fans welcomed them back after nine years of not hearing from this rock trio.
