We’d like to thank Louise Post of Veruca Salt for helping us set this interview up. She told her former Veruca Salt bandmate Nicole Fiorentino that she HAD to talk to the girls when the Smashing Pumpkins came to Columbus.
Connie: Our dads were really excited that we were going to interview the Smashing Pumpkins.
Olivia: I know! My dad said that this was one of his favorite bands from when he was in college.
Connie: We interviewed the opening band first (Five Knives) and then got interviewed for a magazine (614 Magazine) before we did this interview.
Olivia: Right in the middle of the interview the other band started playing so we had to wait until they were done but Nicole started dancing so we did too.
Stick around for the “bonus” dance footage at the end of the interview.
