Obviously I wish it were under better circumstances, but my interview with one of my favorite NYC bands, The Yellow Dogs, went viral after brothers Looloosh and Arash (second and third from the left respectively) were murdered by a fellow Iranian musician early yesterday morning. Obviously I didn't choose the headline, but I'm sure you know how that goes. I only hope I was able to further the reach and legacy of their music. You can read it in its entirety from VICE.com.
UPDATE: The surviving Yellow Dogs have since released a statement and set up a fund to help offset the costs associated with this tragedy. My sources are even telling me that there will be a Benefit Concert to help gather additional support the band.
UPDATE #2: THERE WILL BE A BENEFIT THIS MONDAY 9/18 AT BROOKLYN BOWL AND THE LINE-UP IS RIDICULOUS. Make a donation and get your tickets here.
LONG LIVE THE YELLOW DOGS!
