Interview with FIDLAR Guitarist Elvis Kuehn

Tonight at the Waiting Room features LA skate/punk/garage band FIDLAR. The band is currently on tour supporting their second album “Too.” Guitarist and vocalist Elvis Kuehn and drummer Max Kuehn are the sons of Greg Kuehn, keyboardist for Long Beach punk legends T.S.O.L., while Zac Carper (vocals/guitar) is the son of famed surfboard designer John Carper. It was only three years after laying down their first song ideas in the studio that this LA band was finding themselves on tour with the Hive as well as the Black Lips.

Their second album shows a growth in songwriting, creative direction, and production, mainly due to the band experimenting in a different studio environment. In this interview, Kuehn talks about the different approach to writing and recording “Too” as well as how much fun and work it is to produce the band’s off the wall videos.
