The only way this Friday the 13th will be unlucky is if you don’t check out these young talented fellows. Chris LaBella, a local rapper will be opening for Bryce Vine all the way from LA! Check them out at Der Rathskeller tonight (Friday 13th) at 8pm!
I got to ask Bryce a couple questions during his busy route to town.
Where were you born, and what brought you to Los Angeles?
I was born in a small apartment in Manhattan. I moved to LA when I was about ten because my mother who was an aspiring actress at the time landed a role on a daytime soap opera.
Did you start as a rapper?
Actually, no. I started as the lead singer of a punk band.
How did you come about the name (of the new album)?
Laissez-faire was the name of the little party boat my mom used to have. My friends and I spent many summers on the lake drinking and rock jumping. The album title was a tribute to those memories.
Who is/are your biggest inspiration(s)
Stephan Jenkins of Third Eye Blind and Frank Ocean are some of my favorite writers. Big fan of Kid Cudi, Brother Ali, and The Wombats, also.
Would you be looking for a girl to go see “50 Shades Of Grey” with?
I’d Probly rather go alone and pretend to weep next to happy couples.
Kama, the Hawaiian Surfer Pig…Google him. –>
What would you do to get some free sour patch kids?
What is your favorite thing about performing on College Campuses?
College students hold nothing back when they are feeling the music. They go ape shit.
What is the weirdest talent you posses?
My perfect impersonations of Macy Gray and Shaggy.
Is there anything crazy we can expect from your show tonight?
Two words…Panda Cannon
