Lisa Schonberg tipped us to this interview done by Tom Tom Magazine, of Portland musician LKN—AKA Lauren K. Newman of Palo Verde (and plenty of other bands over the years).

As she's driving around Portland, LKN fields questions from Tom Tom's Portland TV crew, which is Sad Horse drummer Elizabeth Venable and local filmmaker Jodi Darby. There's also footage of Palo Verde performing at the recent PDX Drum Fair at the Wonder Ballroom on November 27—and, for good measure, LKN ordering some coffee, too.

A great interview—LKN is a force of nature, not just behind the drum kit, but in front of the camera during the interview. I wish more people I interviewed were this emphatic. (Maybe I'm not asking the right questions.) And LKN's dad sounds like a rad dude.
