I recently had the opportunity to chat it up with Bay-area, indie-pop-rockers, The Morning Benders. (And we actually got to sit down outside on a rare winter day in NYC that didn’t call for a scarf and gloves.)
Fortunately, it was drummer, Julian Harmon’s, 21st birthday. Why so fortunate? Shooting in clubs costs money, but luckily the Double Down Saloon let us shoot on their back patio for free. If Julian’s not 21, he’s not getting in, and were left scurrying around the Lower East Side for a place to chat.

Find out why frontman Chris Chu doesn’t like encores, who played drums with Julian at a recent gig, and why The Morning Benders are the best “morning” band around:
