Andrew Jackson Jihad Tells You Why You Should be at the Magic Stick Thursday Night!

The dudes from the the folk punk band Andrew Jackson Jihad are currently on tour with Dogbreth and Cheap Girls and this Thursday, June 19th they are stopping by the Magic Stick in Detroit. We had an opportunity to check in with them on tour. Read ahead to see what these silly guys had to say and then head up to the Stick to see them play live and in person this Thursday.

HID- Go to tour food and why?
AJJ- "Arugula because it tastes good on its own without any dressing."
HID- Smelliest person in the tour van and why?
AJJ- "Mark because he is always the last person to commit to showering."
HID- Worst show you have played in the last year and why?
AJJ- "Not playing a show is the worst kind of show."
HID- What song do you hate playing live and why?
AJJ- "Songs that we hate don't get played live."
HID- You used a lot of toilet paper in your music video for "Temple Grandin". What did you do with it after the video was over?
AJJ- "Joe Stakun rolled them back up to take them home. The toilet paper eventually met its destiny."
HID- Why should someone check out your live show?
AJJ- "Cheap Girls and Dogbreth are both awesome. We're playing too."
HID- Have you ever been to Detroit before? If so, tell us about your experience. If not, tell us what you expect from what you've heard.
AJJ- "We've played the Magic Stick a couple times before. It's always been great, besides carrying gear up three flights of stairs."
HID- Anything else that you would like our readers to know?
AJJ- "If you're tired, pull over. If you're hungry, eat something" - Dogbreth

The Magic Stick is located at 4140 Woodward Ave. in Detroit Tickets for the show are $12 and can be purchased in advance here.
