If I Dropped By… with Jared Griffin of Sioux City Kid

Sioux City Kid will be at Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 2 this coming Tuesday, June 10 at 10PM.  So, in anticipation of the show, it seemed like the perfect time to pose my "If I Dropped By…" questions to Sioux City Kid's Jared Griffin.  Now, if you're not familiar, scroll down to the bottom of the post and checkout the band's new single "Heartbreak Shakedown".  I think you'll like it.

Quirky NY Chick (QNYC): ... and brought a friend who didn't know your music, what song of yours would you play for them and why?

Jared Griffin (JG): Ol' Tennessee. It's my most personal song. 

(QNYC): ... what song or album would you feel I needed to hear before I left?

(JG): Tumbleweed Connection - Elton John. 

(QNYC): ... would you proudly display the cheesy music in your collection or pretend someone left it by mistake?

(JG): Proudly own it. Because the cheesiest thing in my collection would be a Goo Goo Dolls record, and I stand by that. That's just good pop music. 

(QNYC): … John, Paul, George or Ringo? 

(JG): I feel guilty answering this one, because George deserves some love, too. But... John no question. 

(QNYC): … city life or country life? 

(JG): If trying to have a career in music wasn't a priority, country life. But, city life is necessary. 

(QNYC): ... what's one thing you must have in your refrigerator at all times?

(JG): Sriracha. 

(QNYC): … My thanks to Jared for allowing me to "drop by".
