Earlier this month, Pasadena’s Just Like Heaven fest gave us visceral flashbacks to setting “New Slang” as the song on our MySpace pages per Natalie Portman’s insistence with the event’s stacked lineup of bands (minus The Shins, regrettably) who helped influence the rise of indie rock across the ’00s. If you missed it, we captured most of the fest in photos, while even snagging a few intimate portraits with some of the performers—including Cults, The Hives, The Walkmen, and Hot Chip—behind the scenes of the festival.
In addition to these portraits, FLOOD contributor Adrian Spinelli sat down with each of these groups for a series of interviews being broadcast all day this Saturday, May 27, on FLOOD FM. At the top of each hour from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. PT, head backstage with the artists for these one-on-one conversations. Find more info below, and tune into FLOOD FM here.
