On a Thursday night in Los Feliz, the dudes who throw on the Fuck Yeah Fest set aside an hour to sit on a stoop and have a lengthy, convoluted conversation with me. Despite the perpetual interruptions and digression, I arrived at a very straightforward conclusion. Keith Morris (of Black Flag, The Circle Jerks, and Midget Handjob) and Sean Carlson are two friends who are real characters. They hate doing interviews, they love ice cream (both sugar-free and vegan respectively), they hate technology, and above all, they bask in a concert-going lifestyle. Somehow we connected on a plane riddled with tangents, utmost chaos, and hilarity. The very notion upon which the Fuck Yeah Fest was built.

Sean: He doesn't know the difference between the two.

Sean: Where are you going?

Keith: By the time I get down hopefully the interview will be done.

Sean: Oh, go fuck yourself. Oh man, you know what? We were supposed to do another interview earlier tonight. Luckily it got cancelled.

LAist: Really?

Sean: Oh yeah we both hate doing interviews. It's fun though. You seem much more loose.

LAist: No, this is very relaxed.
