We were really digging on Periscope during CMJ Music Marathon this year, running around and doing quickie interviews with a bunch of bands that were chilling out around temporary CMJ HQ at the Downtown Dream. But those Periscope clips float into the ether after 24 hours, so we took the initiative to upload them to YouTube. Check out our band chats as we post them over the next few days, and look for more of our guerrilla interviews on the reg in the coming year.

Does Joe Jonas need our hype help? Probably not. But while chatting with him and his new band DNCE at CMJ last month, he seemed genuine about starting over with a whole new thing, and his band seemed like they’ve been having fun in the few months the band has existed. Check out our chat, below.
