In the Spotlight - Season 3 - Ep. 8 with Handheld - A Powered By Rock Podcast Short

Hey there, it’s Isaac from Powered By Rock here to bring Pat and Andy from the punk band Handheld into the spotlight for a few minutes, and make them sweat with some on-the-spot questions.

Welcome, guys. Are you ready to be put in the spotlight?

1 - I know you guys used to play Screeching Weasel, Face to Face and Blink-182 songs when you first got started. These were some of my go-to bands when first starting to play in a band in high school as well. What were some of the first cover songs you guys learned to play as a band?

2 - A lot of people may assume you guys are related since you have the last name, but that’s just a coincidence, and I know that being in a band can definitely cause some arguments if not downright fights amongst members. So, if you guys WERE related, as say brothers, do you think you would have ended up fighting more or less than you have in your life? And who’s winning these fights?

3 - What’s the coolest thing you have ever seen or done whether it was on tour, while playing a gig or just related to the band playing music?

4 - I assume from the songs “Old Timers” and “Double Double DUI” that you guys played or still play hockey. Knowing that Kitchener is close to Toronto, I am going to leap to an assumption that you are Maple Leafs fans. So, who’s your favorite Leaf of all time? And why doesn’t Canada know how to pluralize the word Leaf?

5 - I know this movie wasn’t based in Canada, but knowing that you guys do hail from the land of syrup, be honest, have you guys ever tried to do a maple syrup chugging contest like they do in the movie Super Troopers? Or would you be willing to if someone asked you to?

I want to thank Andy and Pat from Handheld for stepping In the Spotlight and answering these hot seat questions.
