August 9, 2011 with Darin Ficorelli [Cassette Archives]

Darin and I met when we were impressionable high schoolers and have been musical pals through the years. We’ve written many holiday-themed songs together under the moniker The Next Door Neighbors, and shared many bills together when he was in the band Wafflehouse*. With this history, our musical tastes lined up very well and it was one of the most fun nights.
