In the third episode of my Treefort series with DIY label Self Group and photographer Ingrid Renan, I talked to Seattle-based punk band Wimps about gentrification, their favorite Seattle haunts and their advice for artists coming up.
Their latest full length, Suitcase came out late last year with Kill Rock Stars. Keeping a light and self deprecating vibe to infectious punk, the band has been busy on tour and will be playing Sasquatch Music Festival this coming May.
Later in the episode, take a listen to tracks from Kyle Craft including a short interview from The Gritty Birds Treefort showcase.
