EXIT POLL: TRAVIS (MACHINEDRUM) & JOHN
How did you think the show went tonight?
John: It went awesome. It’s nice to visibly see Americans getting down.
So are you his… or, how do you know each other?
Travis: We’ve known each other for about 12 years now or something.
When did you get to Boston?
Travis: Last night… technically [Laughs]
Where are you going after this?
How did you think the crowd was if you had to compare it to England?
John: I think the crowd was conservative, but enjoyed it.
Yeah we loved it; it was awesome.
Travis: That’s good!
Ben: Did you have an idea of what you wanted to do when you came into the show?
Travis: A little bit yeah, definitely. I originally wanted to do more of a live thing, but the mic was really feeding back, if I were to add reverb it would’ve kept feeding back. So I just did more of a live DJ thing.
So did you see the post that said “HUGE!” in the Dig, the one you retweeted?
Travis: I did but I didn’t read it yet…
Well for the paper I write for we do calendar slottings, and usually they have no enthusiasm, they’re just listings. But for Machinedrum @ T.T. The Bear’s next to it I wrote “HUGE!” so it was just funny…
Travis: [Laughs] That’s awesome!
John: It is huge!
Did you have fun?
Travis: Yeah I did! I did.
That’s what I’m telling you, I just got off stage I can’t say anything [Laughs]
EXIT POLL: AARON & CHUCK WOOLERY / CHET CHESTNUT
What were you saying about the last song?
Aaron: Regis Chillbin. It’s very special. I was very excited because I came here to hear him play that.
Is that your favorite remix that he does?
Aaron: Yes, very much so.
Chuck: I came here to hear punk rock and I was very upset … with the results.
What’s your name?
Chuck: Chuck Woolery [Laughs]
What’s that shirt you have on there?
Chuck: It’s some sort of shirt.
What do you think of a shirt that says, “Stop looking at my Dig?”
Chuck: That’s a great shirt. Whoever came up with that should get paid MUCH more money than they’re getting paid…
Aaron: Stop Looking at my Dig? No. Whoever came up with that shirt should be fired.
If you could sum up this night in one sentence, what would it be?
Aaron: I dunno Boston sucks … but Machinedrum is nice?
What?! Why would you say Boston sucks?? Machinedrum was just here.
Aaron: So I brought my friend Steve Lee here, he’s like 35 but he had his British ID. So he couldn’t get in.
He came all the way from Quincy, which, you know, is the asshole of America.
What did you think about machinedrum though?
Aaron: He was great [Laughs]
Chuck: You gotta ask more provocative questions!
Don’t tell me what to do, Chuck. How were people dancing in there?
Aaron: Pretty bad.
Have you ever been to Barcelona?
Chuck: Now that’s an ugly city.
Aaron: Barcelona is fucking gorgeous!
How would you compare Boston to Barcelona?
Aaron: [Laughs] You can’t compare Boston to Barcelona.
What’s your name again?
Chet. Chet Chestnut. This personifies Boston moves. *busts out some weirdo dance move*
Aaron: That’s a bit fluid actually for Boston. You gotta get more spastic.
