You may remember that hit you rocked out to in high school, “All the Same.” (Please, enjoy the throwback to banged ’90s haircuts and angsty glances as much as I did.) Australian trio Sick Puppies have been around for a while, and they’re making a stop in Des Moines for KAZR’s Lazerfest this Friday. I snag a couple of minutes with Emma Anzai, the headbanging beuaty with the bass guitar to talk tried and true advice for local musicians, the story behind the band name, and keeping their music fresh after more than a decade of rock. Be on the look-out for a new album from Sick Puppies this summer.
Buy your tickets to Lazerfest here (if you haven’t already). Also joining Sick Puppies are Papa Roach, Alice in Chains, Bush, All That Remains, and Killswitch Engage. Make sure and check thesite for the full line-up and other information.
