If you’re having MR Fest withdrawals by now, your favorite Friday hosts had two interviews the day the San Marcos musical event was held. To celebrate an amazing MR Fest ’14 start, Kelsey and The Fern had two interviews with artists and performers Indigenous Robot and 3D Friends. Both bands shared their origins and adventures with us… along with a few other crazy stories and their excitement for MR Fest!
Colorado native Indigenous Robot’s Elyse Elam (keys), Kyle South (guitar/vocals), Ryan Longenecker (drum), and Vince Graeber (bass) told us how their drive to Texas was met by sneaky cops and crazy performances at the start of their tour. They also shared their observations on how the music and arts are changing and influencing them in the areas they’ve been playing and what they like to do. Indigenous Robot creates their own art, writes and records their own music, and film their own videos — this band’s talent is grand, just like their sense of humor. Last November they released their latest album “Castles” and are touring the United States in their handy van.

Talented trio 3D Friends’ Dan C. Wright, Andrew Alvarado, and Justin Roberts told us stories how their passion for music has taken them to many interesting places, like New York for recording music for TV shows and crazy food restaurants. 3D Friends flared out their unique musical and neon/floral/fancy shirts as they discussed their plans to release a new album and tour during the summer. 3D Friends’ humbleness and friendship shines through their music, performances, and projects. Keep an ear out for them and let them make you feel like you’re part of the family with their expressive style.
