Meet the band ready to put Chicago back in the national spotlight: Friday Pilots Club (Episode 188)

Chicago band Friday Pilots Club (Caleb and Drew) jumped in the Mazda CX-9 (on loan from the spectacular team at The Autobarn Mazda of Evanston) for conversation and food from Red Hot Ranch (3057 N. Ashland).

Discussed this week:

    • The Mazda CX-9 lends itself to an Iron Chef-type scenario.
    • Bands need protein.
    • Friday Pilots Club’s winning the national next2rock competition, earning them a record deal with Big Machine Label Group.
    • The band’s reaction to being judged by the likes of Chris Jericho and Jonathan Davis.
    • The night of the finals: What went on in their heads?
    • Drew’s laptop died like a Viking.
    • The parade that welcomed Friday Pilots Club back to Chicago after their win.
    • Next steps for the band: Album recording with a producer?
    • The bands songs to-date. My favorite song, “Gold and Bones,” an exercise in vocal calisthenics.
    • “Bad as Hell”: It’s a sex song.
    • Swagger is a key ingredient of the band’s total package.
    • Caleb’s crotch issues on stage.
    • Friday Pilots Club needs more fog on stage.

Go to The Autobarn Mazda of Evanston and drool your way across their showroom floor:
