I had the pleasure of a sit-down with Chuck Ragan when he passed through San Antonio. I gotta tell you, I cover a lot of bands in some small, divey venues, but this was hands down the smallest – and darkest – venue I’ve ever covered, as he was playing the basement of the club. It was a bit rough, to say the least, but hanging out with Ragan before the show was a chance to really pick the brain of an artist and talk about art and making music and keeping hope alive in a sometimes shitty world.
