What are his preferences where venues and audiences are concerned?
“I'm really weird with clubs, I only play specific places in the States. It has a lot to do with the sound on stage, that I can hear myself, if the club is honest and pays me at the end of the night, and if the audience isn't having cell phones going off or there's some gaggle of fucking sorority girls talking in some corner. That bugs me more than anything else. It's not as much about noise as about the club itself. Sometimes the audience is into the music even though it's a loud place, and that's fine. I get creeped out by super-quiet folk-Nazi audiences, people who are such purists about it, that creeps me out as much as some frat crowd. I prefer to play a rock bar because I'm almost more removed from it and I can get into it more, turn up the monitors and I don't care what's going on in the audience, I can have my own little good time on stage and make a better show of it.”
