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
