This show was on Friday July 30th, 2010 at the Nikon Theater at Jones Beach and it was phenomenal. Unfortunately I hit a ton of traffic on the way to the theater and missed most of Switchfoot.
Mike Phirman is a talented and kind artist releasing music in the style of comedy. Essentially he writes music with a humorous twist. He very recently released his first solo record titled The Very Last Songs I Will Ever Record (Part 1). Mike Phirman is also known for his work with the music comedy duo Hard ‘N’ Phrim with G4 personality and genuine funny guy Chris Hardwick. I had the pleasure of interviewing Mike early earlier this month.
I had the pleasure of doing some Q + A with the wonderful and funny Paul and Storm. I first heard of these guys when i went to PAX East earlier this year. They have great sense of humor and they are the nicest guys to boot. Much like their twitter account Paul’s responses are with a P and Storm’s responses are with an S. Here is our interview. Enjoy!
This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Mike Phirman, a comedy musician. He recently released his record The Very Last Songs I Will Ever Record (Volume One) and I will have a review of this awesome record soon to come. Mike was also a part of the comedy duo Hard ‘n’ Phirm with G4 personality and funny man Chris Hardwick. I had the honor of talking to Mike on Skype and here is a transcript of our interview. Enjoy!
I came across the song, “Walking the Dog” by fun. in a pretty atypical way for myself. Spin Magazine made a compilation for the New Jersey outdoor music festival The Bamboozle. I, being the music whore I am known to be, downloaded this free mix, burned it to a CD and popped it in my car’s radio. I found myself repeating the same song over and over again, something that hardly ever happens. I must admit, any song that has a “nah, nah, nah” chorus makes me weak at the knees. This song has something that a lot of songs don’t have nowadays, coincidentally, fun.
