Q: How did the band form?
Steris: A few of us were at a show together at Ace of Cups at the end of November of last year. We had some drinks, thought of the name and idea surrounding Bummers and decided to go home and get the guitars out.
Q: Can you describe your music?
Steris: Reverb-y garage rock that has all kinds of genres incorporated into the sound. We all have so many influences that they kind of all come out in our music.
Q: What do you tend to sing about?
Pearl: Chicks. Even the most punk song is about love, being poor or some strange drug experience.
We’re positive dudes, but when it boils down, life can be a bit of a bummer, man.
Q: Beyond the Friday concert and recent EP, what else is on your plate?
Steris: We have been recording our full-length for the past couple of months. We want to take our time with it and make sure it’s exactly what we envisioned.
Q: What’s the greatest bummer about being a musician?
Pearl: Working other jobs. We just want to play all day and all night, but it just isn’t possible right now.
Q: And an upside?
Pearl: For some reason, the most divine women come to our shows.
