Words by: HollyPhotos by: CandaceKeeping things casual, we got to lounge in the greenroom with Cherub before their show at the Crystal Ballroom last Friday. Pizza in hand, Jason and Jordan, the two behind the sound, talked strip clubs, other passions & even gave us some life advice.The first thing we had to know: what would these two be doing if music wasn't their main gig. Jordan (who sports the red hat) would be cooking food. He might not be a star chef right now, but that's the only other thing he's super passionate about. Food. He loves food. Any food that makes you happy when you eat it.Jason, while enjoying some pizza, oddly didn't choose food. He would still be doing something related to music, maybe on the business side of things, or studio side, but something in music. "It's almost boring to say 'if I wasn't doing music, I'd be doing music' but I feel like that's what I'd be doing."Where would they play if they could perform at any unconventional venue? They both were pretty into the strip club idea. That has never been done. House parties are always fun, and they haven't done one of those in awhile. But, a strip club would be tight. They would commit to that, and commitment is a thing for both of them.Cherub seems to have found a happy balance between touring and partying. After writing Doses & Mimosas at 22 years old, the two were boppin around festivals doing acid and coke. Now, they still party but there's much more of a balance. "If you go over the edge with anything, you get into the blues. It takes awhile to balance out all the crazy shit to realize you've gotta live. Touring is our normal life. So, don't fucking lose your mind in the process."Just sleep. At some point. For 8 hours a day. Then you're good.
We ended on life advice.Their suggestions? Eat food, drink water - you don't need to get an education - pee in the right places, learn how to read & write, learn how to function in today's society, and then, from there... take the bull by the horns & SMACK. Plow. Plow? Yeah..Plow on!
