First/Last – Drauve

August 2, 2019

four pals making hazy tunes for hazy days

Drauve is a brand new dream pop band from Pittsburgh who are playing out all over town promoting their fantastic debut single “Haunted”, which was released last month. Catch the band tonight (Friday, August 2nd) as they perform at The Funhouse at Mr. Smalls with The Vics and The Sane. I want to thank Vic Morgan (Guitar/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

The first album you ever bought?
First album I ever bought was Avril Lavigne’s Let Go. My first live solo singing performance was actually singing “Complicated” at my first grade talent show.

Your last album bought?
Sundries by Flower Crown. Supporting local music!

Favorite album of all time?
Tom Tom Club’s self titled album. So extremely innovative and inspires me to push musical boundaries.

Least favorite/most disappointing album?
I was a huge fan of the band Bad Suns until their most recent release Mystic Truth. They completely lost their unique sound with their new record, and traded it in for something more conventional & corporate. Huge bummer.

First concert attended?
Green Day’s 21st Century Breakdown Tour at Mellon Arena 

Last concert?
Men I Trust and Belle & Sebastian at Carnegie Music Hall of Oakland

Favorite concert ever?
Favorite concert ever was the 1975’s Halloween Show in 2016. They are one of the most incredible live bands of my generation for sure, and they went all out with a Star Wars theme for that show. 

Least favorite concert?
Least favorite concert was seeing Two Door Cinema Club at Firefly Music Festival because I got kicked in the head by a crowd surfer & had to leave the show.

Favorite thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
Although I’ve lived near Pittsburgh almost my whole life, this is my first year living in the city, not the suburbs. I just love how each Pittsburgh neighborhood is so distinctive, and has so much to explore. I feel like I have yet to make my best memories here because I still have so much to discover about Pittsburgh!

Thanks, Victoria. Getting kicked in the head and having to leave a show because of it sounds just awful. Crowd surfing is so stupid anyway.
