The Heyday on grassroots capitalism, working independently and not getting dates

The big news here is that the Heyday have a new EP out and will be playing a CD-release show on October 1st at the Gothic. But the Denver foursome has a lot more going on than just that. In this extended Q&A, bassist and vocalist Peter Wynn goes more in-depth on the band's auction-style fundraising and tells us about the challenges an indie band faces without the safety net of a label.
