Friday (December 30th) at the Hi-tone (1913 Poplar Ave.), Little Rock Arkansas’ Booyah! Dad returns to Memphis to play a show with the Dirty Streets and Hi-Electric. When they played the Buccaneer back in October, I was just blown away by how nutty of a live show these guys put on. I sent their singer and guitarist Lieutenant Top a few questions, which he was kind enough to answer:
MRC: Partying seems to be a predominant theme in Booyah! Dad’s music. How does Booyah! Dad prefer to party?
Lieutenant Top: We like to party anyway, anyhow, anywhere we choose.
MRC: Many of you are all parts of different bands. When do you know that a song written is a Booyah! Dad song?
LT: I write most of the songs and some of the parts, bring it to the guys and let them add their own flair to it. Within reason.
MRC: How long have you guys been playing out and how did you guys come together as a band?
LT: We’ve been playing out for a year now. When I moved to Little Rock in July 2010, I grabbed these two gentlemen and we proceeded to become the amorphous blob of everlasting party rock that we are today.
MRC: What have been some of the more memorable moments or shows for Booyah! Dad as a band?
LT: It would be the time that Rick Barton (Dropkick Murphys, Continental) called us a psychedelic B.T.O.
MRC: What can we expect from Booyah! Dad in 2012?
LT: 2012 will bring about a new record and a couple of shirts. Party.
MRC: How can people interested in your music get a hold of it?
LT: The best way to get our record is to go to booyahdad.bandcamp.com and download it for 5 smackeroos.
Doors open at 9:00pm, cover is $7, and this show is 18 and up.
