The Afterdarks: the best thing that ever happened to hot-rodders and beer sales

The Afterdarks is a band from Quad Cities that I first heard on Radio Free Bakersfield. Papa D discusses what is essential to every Afterdarks song, and why you should have the band's music in your collection.

Complete the sentence. The Afterdarks is...

The best thing that's ever happened to hot-rodders and beer sales

What is essential to every song of The Afterdarks?

We don't really stick to a formula. But, we try to use elements that invoke an emotion that the end of everything is coming, so it might me a damn good idea to get up and dance!

What is essential to every show?

Blood, sweat, beer, and dancing, preferably at night of course.

Why should I have your music in my collection?

Because if you didn't, you'd be kicking yourself 10 years from now for missing out on all the fun.

What would you be doing if you weren't making music?

I don't even want to think about how bleak that future would be. I'd probably be pumping gas or teaching physics.

Want some tunes by The Afterdarks? You can hear 29 (that's right, 29 full tracks) of them on ReverbNation.
