Today's interview is with Tayler, Tia and Scott of Free Truman, a surf punk band from Fargo/Moorhead. Our conversation revolves around topics like Tia's fear of belly buttons, Scott's love of sinners and the joys & hardships of tour life, including Tayler getting accosted by some huge jerk loser in Kansas City ... and then also in Minneapolis by the King of Mansplaining. Post-interview BONUS CONTENT: I ramble about junk for like a half hour.
You can hear Free Truman's demo from 2015 at freetruman.bandcamp.com.
Thanks to Rod Hadland for letting me goth up the sick photo of Free Truman that he shot at a show at the Hawk's Nest in Fargo! My band Vanity Plate is playing a show there with Free Truman & a bunch uh others on March 31st. See y'all there!!

Dan, Tia, Scott and Gabe are in their tour van, in the scorching heat with no AC, and we talk about pyramids of La Croix, immortality sandwiches, and Mac DeMarco.
This week on the Prairie Goth radio hour, I'm playing tracks from Fargo-based electronic producer, Suspicion. Suspicion has released nine different albums and mixtapes so far in 2016 (if you include the ones he released under other names) so I felt like a radio show highlighting Suspicion's output for this year was overdue.
Grace Clark is a photographer from Minnesota/Idaho/Florida — except that now she's living on the road in a teardrop camper that she built herself, with some help from friends. Grace stopped through Bismarck on the first day of her journey to give me a feel for what the next six months of her life is going to be like. Art projects, pizza & taking it slooooowww.
