In a zombie apocalypse, what is your weapon of choice and why?

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Walnut Room

Dragonfly. Or the Owl. Depending on if I feel like being the bringer of life or the bringer of death (See the zombie apocalypse question).

What Denver band have you been listening to the most?
Strange Americans

Favorite thing about rockin’ out in a folk rock band?
The fiddle works well and isn’t obliterated by other instruments. How many successful death metal violinists have you heard of?? Also, I still have my hearing intact after a show!

Hear Emily’s beautiful violin parts on our new album Union Station. Find it on iTunes and Bandcamp.
