First/Last-The Eastern Sea

"The Eastern Sea is an Indie rock band from Austin, Texas, which originally started as a bedroom project by singer Matthew Hines and eventually morphed into a band. They have released two original full length albums and a full length Christmas album."

The band hits Pittsburgh Saturday night at The Smiling Moose for the all-ages early show touring behind their latest album, "Plague". I want to thank vocalist Matt Hines for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

The soundtrack to ‘Good Burger’.

Your last album bought?
Metronomy “Love Letters”.

Favorite album of all time?
Three way tie: Neil Young “Harvest”, White Denim “Last Day of Summer”, Scott Walker “Scott 4”.

Limp Bizkit “Chocolate Starfish and Hot Dog Flavored Water”.

The Men and Cloud Nothings at The Mohawk in Austin.

Favorite concert ever?
Phoenix at Madison Square Garden in 2010. (Daft Punk played their encore).

Least favorite concert?
Weezer at Free Press Summerfest in Houston.

Any thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
First time we ever played in Pittsburgh we drank a bottle of gin and cut our own hair with safety scissors. Ever since then, I've had an amazing soft spot in my heart for your city.

Thanks, Matt. Pittsburgh = drunken haircuts. I can live with that, I suppose.
