Exclusive Interview: T. Mills
T. Mills fills out our official SSMF Questionnaire—reminiscing about his first show on The Sunset Strip and dispensing crucial festival survival advice—this before taking the Monster Energy East Stage at this Saturday’s street fest.
What other band on the bill are you most looking forward to seeing?
De La Soul! It’s so crazy I get to play a show with them!
Tell us the story of your first show on The Sunset Strip.
My first show on The Sunset Strip was actually not even a show, iit was a fashion show for Paul Mitchell, and I went up and played two songs to MP3 on my shitty laptop. It was funny!
For SSMF attendees, what are the essential do’s and don’ts of festival preparation and etiquette?
If you’re going to be there all day bring sunscreen. Sunburns are a no-go! Bring a change of clothes, cologne, a fake VIP pass and a bag of goodies. Don’t bring any Sweet Tarts.
Everyone has at least one story about a crazy night out on The Sunset Strip. Anything you are legally allowed to share?
My lawyer advised me to keep my mouth shut! Let’s make a new one?
Catch T. Mills live on The Sunset Strip this Saturday from 3:10-3:50 p.m. on the Monster Energy East Stage outdoors. For tickets, visit www.ticketweb.com/ssmf.
