I spoke with Bobby Hussy before the show about that new record, plus his approximately one zillion other projects, including bands TIT, Cave Curse, Fire Retarded and label Kind Turkey Records.
On the new record, Galore:
"The record comes out technically June 30, but we'll have it with us on the tour. It's about to come out. I'm pretty excited. I usually am nervous about the record coming, but now I know what day it's going to be here."
On adding a third person:
"We're thinking about Tyler [Fassnacht, also in Fire Retarded with Hussy] permanently, as a baritone guitar and me as just the regular guitar. We'll see what happens. I love [baritone guitar], and nobody's really doing it."
Thee Open Sex, The Hussy, We Are Hex
A Thursday night at the Melody Inn. Three performers, Thee Open Sex, The Hussy, and We Are Hex, took the stage for a fast-paced, loud and energetic night of music. The night was full of enthusiastic shrieks and guitars on fire.
On playing the White Rabbit:
"It feels like a natural progression, for sure. We've been playing houses [in Indy] for years; we've been playing smaller clubs there for years. I miss the Vollrath; that was an incredible room. ... It's exciting to play what I consider the big room."
On working with TIT collaborator Shawn Foree of Digital Leather, who opens Friday's show:
"The dude's a genius. The thing is, he's a keyboard [master]. He just knows how a keyboard works, can hear the music and is like, 'Yeah, it goes like this' and will just play it. He's one of those guys who will kind of get frustrated if you're not as quick as him. [Working with him] made me step up my game."
On coming back to the Mel last year:
"The first place I ever played in my life in Indy was the Melody Inn, about 10 years before [last year's show at the Mel] with me and Heather. I had never been back since. It was crazy to come back. It was awesome."
