Bonus mini episode! Jason Powell, lead guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter for Guantanamo Baywatch took some time out of his busy tour schedule to catch up with me. We’ve known each other for almost a decade, and I was there when he drunkenly came up with the ridiculous idea for his band. We spoke about their current tour, new album “Desert Center,” stealing drugs from fraternity houses in Boston, his old conceptual punk band PISS and their bad luck-filled mini-tour of Iceland, why Las Vegas rules but sucks, French audiences, and much more. We recorded in a bar before their live show last night, but at least the bartender had a cool playlist on in the background.
Scroll past the embedded episode for a short video and some pics from their show last night at Elsewhere.
