"....is anyone drunk yet?" - The Attraction
Trick or treat, my blogspot readers, it's Devil's Night and Dr. SouthSide's making rounds at two separate shows in one festive night. First stop was to examine the zombified bands at Subterranean before they rocked the stage in front of an all-ages crowd. The costumed kiddies were eager to see performances by The Delivery Boys, Love Me Electric and The Highlife. Unfortunately, this good doctor wasn't able to stay for the headliner, Silent Sirens. However she was able to interview Adrian and Jesse before they zomblied the stage. But first she spent one-on-one time examining Jimmy (vocals) and Corey (guitar) of The Highlife.
Dr. SouthSide asked the guys what The Highlife was all about. They replied the band was about enjoying what they do especially when writing good music. The band wanted blogspot readers to know they're not into following the scene thing because their music/songs are fresh unique and diverse. They're not into playing straight rock while on stage. There's a bit of everything from hiphop to metal within their sound. Another thing about The Highlife - their songs aren't the standards about love or being dumped. Oh there are love songs but also songs about friendship, good times and memories as well as personal beliefs. SouthSide did ask about the idea behind their latest hit, Mama Was Right. Jimmy wrote it as a homage to his own parents giving him sound advice when growing up. Yes, it's clearly true - Mom's are always right. The guys did share their favorite Halloween memories with the good doctor. Jimmy would plan costumes months in advance for Halloween but would never did anything when the holiday arrived. Meanwhile Corey was a party animal! Last year, he partied two days straight - what fun he had! The interview ened with a scoop on future plans for the upcoming year. The Highlife told SouthSide about an album coming out later this year and plans for a spring college town tour. Also, expect bigger shows and more radioplay. After a quick examination Dr. SouthSide gave The Highlife a clean bill of heath to perform on stage.
