Top 3 Remarks Made by Participants in the Vegoose Conference Call

This weekend, the second annual Vegoose Music Festival takes place in Las Vegas. Last week, some of the musicians sat down to discuss the festival with the press. Here are the highlights.

1 Growing up, did you get into the Halloween spirit much? Jack White: The last time I remember doing something for Halloween, I was dressed as Frankenstein and I was asked into somebody’s house and it got really, really odd. . . .  He wouldn’t let me leave. And I think that sort of was the last time I went out trick-or-treating.

2 Is there anything in particular in Vegas you guys are looking forward to? Brendan Benson of the Raconteurs: Burying some bodies out in the desert or digging up some bodies.

3 Is this a sort of homecoming for you? Jenny Lewis: It is in a way, yes. Particularly with our new costumes that we’re wearing onstage, I feel that I’m bringing back the spirit of my parents’ lounge act that they had in Vegas in the ’70s where my mother, as the story goes, apparently went into labor with me onstage at the Sands Hotel.
