Just stumbled across a pair of great interviews with two former Denverites who are pursuing music careers on opposite coasts. The first article features Andy Butler from Hercules and Love Affair, who got his start here as an underground dance DJ, while the other interview focuses on Patrick Park, who previously played in Idle Mind in the mid '90s before heading to the West Coast at the end of the decade. In both interviews, the two discuss their time in Denver and how they came to find themselves in New York and Los Angeles. -- Dave Herrera
