Interview by Dave Cotton
Saturday July 16th 2016 marks the second annual “Taco Fest” put on by Vancouver based production company Apocalypse Sunrise. 20 bands ranging from stoner rock to post punk are scheduled to provide the soundtrack to the revelry. Johnny Matter, the festival founder is a veteran organizer of these types of events. In addition to this being the second Taco Fest, Matter is responsible for the annual Diecember Fest which gathers many of the area’s best bands together on one bill every winter. When Matter isn’t working on event production he is the frontman for local doomers BOG and noise punk band MESS(one of the 20 bands slated to perform at the festival). Next weekend’s production seems to be Apocalypse Sunrise’s biggest to date and we were curious to what Johnny has been working on leading up to the event.
