Interview with Shark Week: DC Deli's Best Emerging Band of 2012


You may remember the bombardment of year end lists and polls that dominated the social media stratosphere a couple months ago. Of course we at the DC Deli were a part of the chaos, and in that time, more than several local scene experts (mostly venue bookers and journalists) came to us with similar praise for the band that would become our Best Emerging Band of 2012. And that band is the surf garage rockers Shark Week. We wanted to find out more about the quartet comprised of Ryan, Danielle, Dan and Al. We got a hold of singer/guitarist Ryan Hunter Mitchell who tells us about fooseball tournament prizes, recording in Puerto Rico, and performing at Sweetlife Festival this year!

Shark Week will be headed off to SxSW in the coming days, so catch them at their send off show this Friday March 8th at the Rock and Roll Hotel. They will be shooting a live video and premiering a new single! Joining them are DC's dance rock outfit Dance For the Dying, Balitmore's psyche rockers The Flying Eyes, and new DC punk band Joy Buttons. Doors are at 8 PM and it's only $10. -Dawn
