SABOTA (Center)
WHY DID YOU GUYS DECIDE TO START SABOTA? WHAT IS IT ADDING TO YOUR MUSIC LIVES CREATIVELY? GIVE US A LIL ROBBIE AND MAX HISTORY BREAKDOWN. 
We looked in to eachothers eyes and…
actually max did a remix for my other band and I knew we had to make tunes together. listen to it here
DESCRIBE THE VANCOUVER MUSIC SCENE YOU ARE INVOLVED IN.
Vancouver’s music scene is complex! its kind of hard to dance after a certain hour in the ‘No Fun City‘ so a lot of different genres and groups of people get lumped into the we-wanna-stay-up-late category. We both like to stay up late and dance! that basically defines the underground scene in Vancouver.. except that Sabota for the most part is the music you listen to when things are winding down…
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT SXSW?
Our favorite things about sxsw are also our least favorite things about sxsw — the walking, the beer, the music haha. but seriously — Robbie’s favorite thing about sxsw last year was Club Called Rhonda & DJ Harvey, East Austin and Matthew Dear’s full live band setup.
FAVORITE PIECE OF CLOTHING YOU OWN?
Max – Paper Plane necklace from eugene choo vancouver
Robbie – my simple endovanera scoop neck that is now threadbare! but the holes add to the garment. you know something is good when wear makes it even more wearable…
FAVORITE THING IN MUSIC IN 2013 SO FAR?
hmm. the year is still young! but almost everything that Turbo Records has put out this year has really tickled our fancy. Also keep an eye on Grenier … the remix he did for us is in the mix.
WHEN IS YOUR EP COMING OUT?
we’re going to usher in fall 2k13
SPACE,MOUNTAINS OR OCEAN?
“Space is the Place”
but we come from the forest
OYSTERS,BACON OR ARTICHOKES?
All. Of. The. ABOVE.
IN THE CROWD OR ON THE STAGE?
sometimes on the stage and a lot of the time at the back haha. we both like spotlight but more often than not we avoid it when we can.
DROP OR SKINNY? 
both!
denim is skinny /// cotton is drop
sure denim is coton but you know what we mean. —drop chino
NIGHT OR DAY?
BEACH! so, Day.
