Interview: Hippie Sabotage On North American Tour, Surprise Guests, New Visuals
RSVP to a show in your city for a special gift from Kevin + Jeff!INTERVIEW
Have you been to a Hippie Sabotage show before? If not, let me give you a run down of what goes on when the duo hit the stage—LED walls are warping, brothers Kevin and Jeff are dancing like it's the last show they'll ever play, concertgoers are losing their sh*t, and the bass is smacking everyone in the room in the face. If this sounds like your cup of tea, you're going to l-o-v-e the Path of Righteousness tour.
Kicking off tonight in San Luis Obispo, California, the "Devil Eyes" musicians will be bringing their high energy set to venues across North America, playing songs from their 2017 album, Drifter for cities from Reno to Brooklyn.
To make this run extra memorable, the Saurer brothers wanted to give their Trackers on Bandsintown a chance to win a special keepsake for RSVP'ing to their show. All you have to do is click "I'm Interested" or "I'm Going" to the concert in your city to be eligible to nab the momento.
We wanted to find out more from the Sacramento natives about what fans can expect during the show, what they're doing on off-days, and what it's like to tour with your brother. Check it out below, then make sure to Track Hippie Sabotage on Bandsintown!
We've been traveling and touring all over the world we wanted the name the tour to represent the path we are currently on. Righteousness.
We always look forward to being in New Orleans and Washington DC, but we've never been to Montana so were excited to see the nature there.
It's. F#$(*&%. Crazy.
The best part is that we get to argue all the time, and still get the job done at the end of the day. The worst part is that you have to let all the complaints and jokes slide.
For this tour, we doubled the size of our LED wall and have built a bunch of new custom visuals from the content we've accumulated from traveling all over. Our production team has a bunch of new surprises for everyone to make sure you have a righteous trip.
We've got a couple guests who'll pop up for a couple show, but expect to see our usual friends like Kembe X and Alex Wiley in a few of those cities as well.
We are usually pacing back-and-fourth and running and jumping in place. Jeff tells Kevin to go "Crazy, crazy, crazy," then we walk onstage. An hour after, we're outside the venue hanging out and smoking with the fans.
We listen to all-things rap, add in some classic rock and soul and were good. Kevin is definitely always grabbing the aux to show us the newest kid on the scene.
Goldfish and Ice Cream.
Day-offs involve watching movies, rearranging some of the set, editing videos, and smoking weed.
Well since it works when we jump like maniacs onstage, we'd both stick with that.
Doing what we love.
