Last week we were lucky enough to have both The Draft and The Lawrence Arms drop by the studio to hang out for a bit and take a breather from their US tour. Tonight we are going to play an interview we did with Chris from The Draft and the following week we will be playing an interview with Brendan from The Lawrence Arms. Make sure to go out and see these bands live as their wind their way through the US; The Draft supporting their new record "In a Million Pieces" out on Epitaph, and The Lawrence Arms playing jams from their latest record "Oh! Calcutta!" on Fat Wreck Chords.
The show can be streamed online starting at 8pm PST (11pm EST) right here.
