First/Last-Wicked Chief

"Wicked Chief features a wide array of sounds and influences spanning across the music spectrum.
No strangers to the Do It Yourself work-ethic and a “music first” mentality, the band plans to delve deep into touring and recording more extensively."

Wicked Chief are an indie-rock band from Pittsburgh who's excellent debut album "True Blue" was released last year. They are supporting friends of the blog Balloon Ride Fantasy tomorrow night (3/28) at the fantastic Pittsburgh Winery for their new album release. I want to thank Ben Armstrong (Bass/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

The first album you ever bought?
The first one I can remember buying would probably be “Dookie”.

Your last album bought?
Tame Impala “Innerspeaker”.

Favorite album of all time?
“Led Zeppelin”.

Least favorite/most disappointing album?
Brand New “Daisy”. I am still trying to get to like it.

First concert attended?
Midtown and Armor for Sleep at Club Laga when I was 14.

Last concert?
George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic.

Favorite concert ever?
Either My Morning Jacket or Bon Iver at Merriweather in Baltimore.

Least favorite concert?
Brand New, they’re one of my favorites and it was pretty bad.

Primanti Bros.

Thanks, Ben. Ah, Club Laga. That place is so missed, at least to me.
