Top 10 Tune Up Interviews of 2019

So many interviews, so little time.

I can’t believe 2019 is coming to an end already. It’s been a rollercoaster of a year. But at least we’ve still got some killer bands in the world. I interview over 100 bands every year, so these roundups are always difficult. That said, I still have some favorites.

In chronological order, here are the top 10 Tune Up interviews from 2019 on BTRtoday. Read up and become cool/underground music savvy.
