Hopscotch Interview: Naked Naps

John Meier of Naked Naps fame sat down with Jake from State Farm and Granma Kara last Friday at Hopscotch’s Wristband City. He shared tales from the gone-but-not-forgotten Mattress Fort and the story of how he ripped his pants on stage. He also promises that the track names “Toyota Prius, The Silent Killer” and “Honda Civic ’99,” off the Naked Naps and Museum Mouth split, are merely coincidental.
