Broke-Ass Band (Video) Interview – Emily Jane White

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

I’ve known Emily Jane White for quite some time now.  We went to college together and both graduated from UCSC’s American Studies program.  As you can tell we’re both using our degrees very wisely.

One day, back when I was living in Brooklyn, I was sitting on the toilet and I saw a write up about Emily in Rolling Stone.  I was like “Holy shit! I know her!” and then I went and checked out her music.  It was damn good.  It’s dark and pretty and kind of cinematic in a way.

Now Emily is touring behind her brand new album Victorian America.  A couple days before her release party in San Francisco,  I was able to lure her to my house with the promise of Vitamin Water (I some how won 6 months worth from SF Weekly).  Check out the interview below, then go see her on her current west coast tour:

*I apologize for the shakiness.  Also thanks to again to Susan Lee for the flip camera!
