I am at the Westbeth Theater in NY, I hope that some of you come
down so I can see you. Get here early cause you don't want to
miss the opening act- The Raging Teens, featuring: Miss Amy,
Boston's most rocking Rock A Billy guitarist.
SkyBlueBell: How do you get the pace of
change? My copy of Got No Shadow didn't come
with it. I’m mad. I heard you could send away for it but
MaryLouLord: Gosh I think that there are
directions in the CD how to get it. They are giving it out at
certain stores but I am not sure which ones.
Pat_Bat: I heard the album will be out in
Canada only on March 3 rd. Is this true?
MaryLouLord: I believe it comes out in Canada
on March 1st. I just played in Vancouver at the Star Fish Room. I
wish that I had merch to sell in Canada. I was hoping it would
have been out for the Vancouver show.
Pat_Bat: Will you play in Calgary soon?
MaryLouLord: I am not sure but I hope so.
blake_babie: Your coming to Athens the 27th

Minneapolis. About 10 shows.

all good little Elliot Smith fans.
Brandon: Any plans for a tour outside of the
states and Canada?
MaryLouLord: I think I might go to Japan
SkyBlueBell: Are you gonna be playing any
shows this summer? I’m turning 18 in June and I’d
travel quite a long way to go see you.
MaryLouLord: I am hoping to get on the Lilith
Fair tour. If not I am sure that I will be doing a whole
load of busking around the country. Where are you Sky?
SkyBlueBell: Flin Flon, Manitoba (closest
city is Winnipeg).
MaryLouLord: Wow! Neil Young country!
Pat_Bat: Will you be appearing on talk shows
or Much Music soon? If so when?
MaryLouLord: I am going to be on MTV
Saturday, on the news and the news special thing that they have
which is a bit longer than the news. I am not sure of the name.
Brandon: Mary Lou, just
wanted to thank you for your support with the Safe and Sound
benefit. It's such a great cause.
MaryLouLord: Definitely. I was proud to be
part of it.
sonicmod: Who are your biggest musical
MaryLouLord: Joni Mitchell, Shawn Colvin,
Neil Young, Elliot Smith , Bob Dylan and Lesta Bangs.
DaveFromBoston: Mary Lou ! Is it really You!?
MaryLouLord: Uh... yeah.
MaryLouLord: Can I ask a trivia question? Who
was the lead singer for Neil Young's first band called the
Squires? They were signed to Mowtown. Does anyone know?
MaryLouLord: The band were from Winnipeg.
sonicmod: The band?
MaryLouLord: That’s a good one. Cute.
MaryLouLord: Nope, The Band weren't Neil
Young's first singer. It was Rick James. He was AWOL in Canada
from the army. Him and old Neil struck up a band. I think that's
the coolest. Old Jail bird James.
sonicmod: Fact IS stranger than fiction.
Pat_Bat: How about an all Boston female
"underground Lilith Fair type tour? Boston
girls have the cutest voices.
MaryLouLord: That would be cool.
Pat_Bat: would you take part of something

Hatfield, Kay Hanalee, Jules Verdone Amee Mann and Miss Amy come
MaryLouLord: I forgot Mary Timmy - on Guitar
and Vocals, Julianana on guitar and Vocals, Amee Mann on Bass and
Vocals and Kay Hanaley on drums
Pat_Bat: Kay can play drums?
MaryLouLord: Pat- That would be the best.
probably - in my dream band yes
sonicmod: Do you ever play around with the
MaryLouLord: I used to but my modem broke.
sonicmod: Is there are goal or destination
that you are shooting for? Or do you just enjoy things as they
MaryLouLord: I definitely enjoy things as
they come. But I am hoping someday, to break into publishing.
blake_babie: When is your video going to
MaryLouLord: Blake- March 5th.
sonicmod: Have you ever hung out with Juliana
MaryLouLord: Yes, and I was in the Blake
Babies for about 5 seconds and they broke up about 5 seconds
later. I have done a few acoustic shows with her.
Pat_Bat: You could even play "Lights Are
Changing Together" again.
DaveFromBoston: Mary Lou. . . Why don't you
play more acoustic (and older) songs at the shows? I'm so used to
the oldies. . . I miss them.
MaryLouLord: Dave- I will now that I am
sonicmod: Is there any popular music in the
world today that you like? Or are you more into the fundamentals
MaryLouLord: Yes I like a band from Scotland
called Del Amitri. They are very poppy.
SkyBlueBell: Girl singer?
MaryLouLord: No. All boys.
Akuma: Where was your last concert held?
MaryLouLord: It was in Fez in NYC the night
geoff: Mary Lou, why did you
cancel your Providence show? Add many fans in CT upset about it.
Any chance of rescheduling soon?
MaryLouLord: I hope so, because the show that
I did at Fez was recorded for HBO, and we thought it would be
good exposure. It was the same night as Providence. But I will be
back soon enough I am sure.
sonicmod: What is the funniest thing to
happen to you on stage?
MaryLouLord: I don't remember!
Brandon: Is that for the HBO
MaryLouLord: I am not sure.
SkyBlueBell: You are so incredibly talented
at guitar, I’ve been playing for 3 years and I still cant
figure out most of your songs. Do you like, make up your own
chords or something?
MaryLouLord: They are mostly D, A, B Minor
and G, with a capo. Its the capo! Its the Capo!
DaveFromBoston: Speaking of Mary Lou chords.
What is the progression to "The Bridge" (the best song
MaryLouLord: Probably A, E, B Minor, D, E and
then add an F Sharp Minor somewhere later.
Pat_Bat: Where can I get that tape with"Smells
Like Teen Spirit?"
MaryLouLord: I don’t want to talk about
that. No where.
SkyBlueBell: I just found out what a capo was
MaryLouLord: Uh huh. Good mechanisms for the
Akuma: I would like to know when was the last
time you recorded a single.
MaryLouLord: Uhhhhhh. Probably. I don't
sonicmod: How do you combat the evils of the
music industry and stay true to yourself?
MaryLouLord: By playing in the subway, and
SkyBlueBell: I have this one recording of a
show and you're like , "I lost my capo! that's my favorite
word, capo!" it was too cute.
MaryLouLord: That’s cute Sky.
MaryLouLord: I can only do 2 more questions
because I have to get ready for my show tonight.
DaveFromBoston: Promise to play in the subway
MaryLouLord: Oh yes I promise.
Brandon: Still touring in a van? If so, how
long until the big upgrade to Bus? Next tour maybe?
