THREE QUESTIONS with BOBBLE TIKI: The Artichoke Project

Last week, Bobble Tiki intended to publish an interview with The Artichoke Project prior to the band's show at Stonegate Pizza Saturday night. Long story short: that didn't happen. This tragedy may or may not have had something to do with food poisoning, and wild, projectile anguish spurting from both ends of
