STEREOGUM: I was forwarded a link to Manos: The Hands of Fate. Who wrote it? Were you somehow involved?

MARTY MARQUIS: It was Brian, our drummer, who did the adaptation of a terrible B-movie of the same name. I don't know who the original writer was -- if Brian wanders in while I'm answering these I'll tell you (Hal P. Warren). He does a lot of writing, little skits, comedy routines, etc. This was his first adaptation and he worked with a producer; the two of them were basically Last Rite Productions (along with a web guy, maybe?).[Blitzen Trapper to Stereogum]

Blitzen Trapper are on tour with Fleet Foxes. They play Bowery Ballroom in NYC Saturday night. Ryan didn't stick around to see them at the Sub Pop showcase at SXSW, but he did manage to catch them at one of the Stereogum/Paste day shows. More photos from that below.....
