Local Natives came by the XRT backstage area today to converse about what it’s like playing a Bernie rally, deceptions of taking time off, and making political statements on Conan.
Last week, guitarist Taylor Rice wrote the phrase “Make America Afraid Again” on his guitar for their Conan performance in protest of Donald Trump. “Well, we didn’t ask anybody so it just kind of happened.” Luckily, they said Conan didn’t seem to mind.
Local Natives takes the stage at 4:45 this afternoon on the northern Bud Light stage. They aren’t going to be back in town for awhile for you can drive up to Milwaukee on September 27th to catch them at Riverside Theatre.
