HughShows Q&A with Casper & The Cookies

Casper & The Cookies did a Q&A with HughShows in advance of tonight’s tour stop in Pittsburgh at Howler’s. Discover the band’s thoughts on Luaka Bop’s 1989 Brazilian comp Beleza Tropical & Fugazi’s In On The Kill Taker, on being disappointed by Genesis that one time, and on Pittsburgh: “every time we play there, we wind up some narrow, incredibly steep hill in our van and trailer. Usually, it’s sleeting.” Check it out here!

Brooklyn Vegan previews Casper & The Cookies’ NYC show

Brooklyn Vegan previews Casper & The Cookies’ NYC show at Cake Shop!

Casper & the Cookies are local legends in Athens, Georgia. Main man Jason NeSmith, who was in of Montreal circa Satanic Panic in the Attic…knows his way around a hook and puts more good ideas into one song than most folks do on an album…Casper & the Cookies are on a short East Coast tour and that hits NYC Saturday (4/5) at Cake Shop with fellow pop pop maven Doug Gillard and Lame Drivers. I haven’t seem them play since NYC Popfest 2009 but they were a bundle of energy then and a lot of fun.

Boston Surival Guide features Casper & The Cookies

Boston Survival Guide features Casper & The Cookies and their new album Dingbats in advance of Tuesday’s show at O’Brien’s:

Jason NeSmith (vocals/guitar/keys), Kay Stanton (bass/vocals/keys), AJ Griffin (vocals/keys) and Gregory Sanders (drums) are currently in and/or have traveled through an impressive lineage — Of Montreal, Olivia Tremor Control, The New Sound of Numbers and Supercluster. They’ve toured with The Apples in Stereo, were Daniel Johnson’s backing band and opened for the B-52s’ 34th anniversary show in Athens…Their eerie contemplation about touring life, “Lemon Horses,” reads like a hazy, confusing dream, at some uneasy place between wakefulness and sleep.
