As a founding member of the Mekons, Jon Langford has been making music since the 1970s, so we had a lot to talk about in this two-beer chat at Halyards in Brooklyn.  He covers his entire history, from his childhood in Wales, to art school in Leeds, to his migration in the '90s to Chicago, where he formed the Waco Brothers.  Now backed by his band, Skull Orchard, he's just released Here Be Monsters, his critically lauded sixth solo LP.  Langford also explains how he came to design labels for Dogfish Head Brewery, and reveals the greatest gig he's ever seen.

As the drummer of Soulive, Alan Evans has played several concerts over the years, but the biggest event is always the band's two-week Brooklyn Bowl residency known as Bowlive.  Over a backstage beer during Bowlive 5, Evans gives a brief history of the tradition and shares his daily routine on a gig day.  Alan explains what it's like to feed off the energy of the audience, his bandmates, and any number of special guests that frequently sit in with the band.  He reveals it's this same energy that inspired the Alan Evans Trio to record their latest album, Woodstock Sessions Vol. 1, live in a room full of friends.

The World/Inferno Friendship Society's Jack Terricloth has a few drinks with me at Matt Torrey's in Williamsburg.  He shares his thoughts on what makes a good bar and why he prefers to write songs about historical figures.  Jack reflects on his first punk show, his time in Sticks & Stones, and the collaboration with Mitch Clem to create a comic book to accompany the band's latest EP.
