“Our survival tips that we didn’t follow: 1. Go home and sleep directly after the gig. 2. Don’t drink alcohol before, during or after gig. 3. Don’t get behind schedule. Then you are screwed.” – Icona Pop
How did your drummer get a $100 subway ticket?
Jonathan Rado: Shaun Fleming, our drummer, is from L.A.—he’s only been to New York a few times. We were coming back from a concert in Brooklyn, and he kept swiping his card, and the thingy kept saying “swipe again at this turnstile.” He got fed up and hopped it before I could stop him. I guess he’d seen it on TV. About five minutes later, a cop came up to us and took him into the station, searched him and gave him a $100 ticket. We dedicated “Brooklyn Police Station” to him every night. Foxygen – “Shuggie” (Official Audio) by Jagjaguwar
