303 Magazine loves any opportunity to catch up with hometown favorites, so naturally we jumped at the chance to chat with Andrew Hathaway of Robotic Pirate Monkey as he prepared to head back to the Rockies for their show at Cassleman’s this weekend. We’ve been keeping tabs on the bassmongers of RPM since they were playing house parties in Boulder so seeing their success over the past few years has been rewarding to say the least. The gentlemen of RPM have been keping busy lately with the new release of thier mixtape titled We Be Postin’ fetauring Taylor Gang’s JR Donato and will be sharing the stage with SuperVision, Buku, and Casual Commander on Saturday night. So to get all of our 303 readers excited for the show we talked Mozart and got pretty technical in a discussion about RPM’s new and improved live show. Show starts at 8 PM and tickets are $17, so make sure you get there early to catch all four acts!
303 Magazine: If you could see any performer (alive or dead) who would you choose?
Andrew Hathaway: Hmmm…it would have been really cool to see some of the classical pianists and composers in their heyday. I want to feel that palpable excitement for a show, but in the 15th century. What was that like? How outrageous would it be to see people outside of a concert hall freaking out, making rave candy. I mean imagine how incredibly exciting it was to see Mozart, and how much more of an analog expression of music that was. It must have been insane.
