Gimme Noise: What would you be if you weren't a musician?
Justin Pierre: If I weren't a musician most likely I'd be trying to make feature films and failing miserably. Even though I am a musician I still work for my parents embroidery company part time. I'd probably be doing that full time while failing as a filmmaker. Then again, I'm really into Japanese. Just saying.
Who is your favorite local artist?
Low. I celebrate their entire catalogue. Haunting knife wounds of truth and sadness in every serving. Love that band.
Favorite local venue to play?
First Avenue. I saw all of my favorite bands there in the early '90's. I have an extreme fondness for that place. It's a trip knowing I've actually played there.
Favorite place to eat/drink in Twin Cities?
Pizza Luce finds its way to the center of my gut at least once a week. I dig the veggie nuggets and margarita pizza. It's coma inducingly delicious.
Finish this statement: "Never have I ever..."
...banked Del Tha Funky Homosapien in the neck with a cheeseburger.
Farewell Continental kicks off their national tour on May 11, and will be coming through Minneapolis on June 2, 2011 at the Triple Rock Social Club. 18+, $13, 8 pm
