Chicago pop-punk band (and newly-signed Equal Vision recording artist) Sleep On It meet up with me for tacos and horchata at their favorite hangout, Taqueria Moran (2226 N California Ave). Zech Pluister (lead vocals) and TJ Horansky (guitar/vocals) talk about why they're "basically the Al Capone of pop punk in Chicago." They also discuss: *How salsa verde "gives our band life" *The "diaper" strategy of taco-eating *Their new record deal with Equal Vision: How they got it, and what's coming next *The joy of making videos *Their friend Shayna, who happened to be walking down the street as we were recording. She says "hi" in the middle of the show. *Why TJ may soon be roaming the halls at Proviso East *Their excellent song "Burning At Both Ends" *Their territorial ruling over two blocks of Logan Square. The thing is, they can never venture beyond those two blocks. It's kinda like the Lion King. *Their Riot Fest after-show on 9/17 at Township Listen, share and enjoy!
