Meet and listen to a band to know: Turnspit (Car Con Carne)

This week, I’m joined by Turnspit members Gillian McGhee and Jason Swearingen for hummus and falafel from Sultan’s Market (2057 W North Ave, Chicago, IL 60647).

They debut a stunning new song called “Walk Away,” but before that happens, we discuss:

  • I got a fish soda, but it’s not a real fishy-fish soda, so it’s okay.
  • The vomit incident that preceded the last Turnspit show (“it was super gross”)
  • Turnspit history: “Don’t ever ask Jason to start at the beginning”
  • The major shows they’ve been part of, sharing the stage with Alkaline Trio and Lawrence Arms
  • The state of the Chicago music community
  • What do Turnspit and INXS have in common?
  • The future of Turnspit (it involves live shows and new music)
  • The Boost Mobile Social Media Message of the Week: How previous guest Doll Spit inspired two different Car Con Carne listeners
