101. Rocco Renzetti (Part 1)
"There was always a way to go see [music]. And not just bands you didn't know [...] Maybe once every two weeks, you could go see the Melvins or Dinosaur at the Trocadero [...] I was just about to turn into a teenager, and all these cool bands were happening."
- Rocco Renzetti on coming of age in Philly in the early 90s
Rocco Renzetti was the first Philly musician Dan met when he moved to the city so many years ago. Dan and Rocco talk about Rocco's upbringing in the Philly during the years when the city wasn't the most desirable place to hang out, and what they think about it being a destination nowadays for music and more. Rocco details his former project, Elevator Parade, and how his following project, New Speedway, began to form out of it, as well as the many forms of psychedelia that have influenced him.
