GRANT GOODMAN is fueled by a steady diet of Ray Bradbury short stories, BoingBoing blog posts, musicians with acoustic guitars, and Trader Joe’s hummus. During the day, he works as an English teacher who is (pretty much) single-handedly responsible for shaping the future of the United States. After school, he can either be found running several miles at a time or hanging out at Matchbox attempting to eat several pizzas at a time.
New Questions for Fall 2012
01. You’re a music lover. Who have you seen lately?
Frank Turner put on a show in Baltimore that goes in the top 5 greatest shows I’ve ever seen. MUTEMATH came to town a week later and their live show is pretty crazy, in a different way (a hundred instruments on stage, jumping into the audience, confetti cannons). At the end of the summer, A Silent Film did a 45 minute set in DC that really blew me away, too.
02. Wait…you mentioned you have a top 5 concert list. What are they?
1. Mumford and Sons at Merriweather, June 2011
2. Frank Turner at Ram’s Head Live, September 2012
3. Guster at Byrd Stadium, May 2005
4. Glen Phillips’ 2 night stand at Jammin Java, August 2004
5. The Format at the Recher Theatre, December 2004
03. Best Chef Boyardee pasta?
I mean, they pretty much all consist of noodles in a beefy tomato sauce. There isn’t much difference between Beefaroni and Beef Ravioli and Spaghetti with Mini Meatballs. I guess I’ll go with Beefaroni, because it’s fun to spell.
04. You have a time machine. Where are you going?
05. Picture? Please?
