ChiIL Mama was thrilled to shoot their set and catch up with 4 of the 6 band members for an interview. Then we scored a private one on one interview with the resident dad in the group, where we continued our series on How Creatives Parent and How Parents Create. Their drummer is father to twin daughters, and was happy to reaffirm our core beliefs that there IS indeed LIFE AFTER BIRTH. We'll be featuring that interview tomorrow.
