David Liebe Hart Band

Los Angeles, CA

How many times have you played CMJ?
We’ve never been to CMJ, but last spring we were in New York for a few days. All David wanted to do was ride trains around the city.

How far will you travel to get here?
Two members live in Los Angeles. The other two live in North Carolina and Virginia.

What’s your favorite NYC venue/snack joint/bar?
We went to White Castle last time we were in NYC because they don’t have them out west. The food was terrible and there was bulletproof glass surrounding the cashier. At one point, a disembodied voice came over the loudspeaker and told us we couldn’t film in there, but I still can’t figure out how they knew we were filming. So, not that place.

Which other artists are you looking forward to seeing?
I’m not even sure who else is playing, but I’m sure there’s good stuff everywhere.

If you could be any type of sandwich what would you be and why?
Double meat and double cheese with avocado and bacon and all the extra stuff. The grocery store has really good sandwiches sometimes.

David Liebe Hart Band plays Pete’s Candy Story at 9 p.m. tonight and Public Assembly on Saturday, October 22 as part of the Panache showcase.
