Watch 7th Graders Interview Speedy Ortiz

Kids interviewing bands is a weird thing. There are a few obvious advantages. For instance: I can’t imagine why I, a professional music critic, have never asked a musician, during an interview, whether she’s ever broken a bone. That is a really interesting question! For anyone! But on the flipside: No follow-up questions! You can’t just stiffly read the questions from a piece of paper, kids! Go deeper! Anyway. The same 7th-grade girl who interviewed Sleigh Bells’ Alexis Krauss last year teamed up with a friend and sat down with eminently likable Boston indie types Speedy Ortiz for Kids Interview Bands, and the band members gamely fielded their questions. Watch the result below.
