There are just, simply, no excuses for not dancing yourself silly this Saturday night in Chattanooga.
The show is at 9 p.m.
Georgia’s Baby Baby has become an audience favorite in Chattanooga because of their high-energy performances and addictive songs.
A multi-race band, Baby Baby combines pop-punk melodies with lyrics about how women are weird and surreal music videos. Formed in 2009, the duo of Fontez Brooks and Grant Wallace evolved into the current lineup, a four-piece group with a simple motto for every show: "Let’s get weird."
Baby Baby released a new single in January for a forthcoming album called "Big Boy Baller Club." The song "Keep on Dancin'" might just be the best thing you’ve heard all year.
We asked Baby Baby drummer Grant Wallace a few pertinent questions about playing in Chattanooga and Sasquatch.
Chattanooga LOVES Baby Baby! Why does Baby Baby love Chattanooga?
Chattanooga has everything you want in a city: strip clubs, community colleges, Mellow Mushroom and snowboarding competitions (we played this earlier this year). More specifically, Chattanooga has amazing people; JJ's has the best staff; and it just seems that people actually get what we're trying to do, which can be really difficult in other cities. With that said, Chatt knows how to party.
I think "Fire" and "Keep on Dancin'" are most excellent tunes. How does one write such a catchy song?
Step one: Go to sleep. Step two: Meet up with your bandmates in a dream world and have a drink. Step three: Talk about girls, fly around and get really excited about playing JJ's on Oct. 26. Step four (the easiest step): Because we're all in such a good mood, all the vibes just channel into our band practice. Guitar BAM. Drums BING. Bass BOOM. Seriously, "Fire" and "Keep on Dancin'" were written in like half an hour, but it took years to perfect.
We have in common a belief that Bigfoot (Sasquatch) is not only real, but also plotting the demise of humans. What do we do when the uprising occurs? You have a theory about how Sasquatch came to be, right? Something about dinosaurs and rainbows?
Hahahaha! First off, Sasquatch doesn't like to be called "Bigfoot." He's very insecure about his feet because he's secretly a girl. Same with the Abominable Snowman. Call him by his proper name: Yeti. The word "abominable" makes him feel alone and unwanted. So sad. OK, back on subject. Your speculation of Sasquatch (his real name is Frank) plotting the end of humans is PURE myth. Frank is just a misunderstood dude. Thanks to that god-awful Animal Planet show "Finding Bigfoot," we have nincompoops like Bobo going around trying to lure Frank out of the woods with hot dogs just for the sole purpose of exposing him to the public. DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THAT! Frank told me the real story of how he came to be, though; he was born from the egg of a pterodactyl right at the end of a rainbow. True story.
I'm visiting Carrolton, Ga., for a night. What are we doing? (Don't say "driving to Atlanta.")
Go to the Ally Cat bar! And uh ... go ... to ... ATLANTA. Sorry, none of us lives there anymore, so I don't think we would be able to help you. I w... [Wallace trails off here.]
Baby Baby is known for one-take music videos filled with all sorts of craziness. You're working on a new video, right? What else is in the works for the band?
Yep, releasing it on Halloween, I hope! We have a new badass keyboard player now, so everyone is in for a funnnnnn time! It's going to be the most epic video to date ... not even kidding. You get to watch how a Sasquatch is born.
