Whether they're tearing up a trailer at UCI's Acrobatics Everyday, touring small venues throughout Southern California, or taking their dogs out for a day at the park, the members of Moon Pearl know how to have a good time. Its roster is large and fluctuating, but the majority of the band members (Matthew Towles, Katie Tilford, Paul McEldowney, Michael Mermelstein and Sam Farzin) come together for a band meeting…and a dog playdate.
Although Katie, Paul and Michael have been playing together in Moon Pearl for the past several months, this is the first time that their dogs have met.
Paul: “Max would definitely listen to reggae. He's just that laidback. Sandy…I'm not sure.”
Michael: “Coco would probably whine the whole car-ride. She whined for most of the way here; probably thought she was headed to the vet. But she's pretty happy to be here with us right now. I feel like once she got to the show, she'd be really into it.”
Paul: “Riley is adult contemporary.”
Matt (without hesitation): “A Lisa Frank unicorn.”
Katie: “Exactly. Lisa Frank. Like we came off a Trapper-Keeper.”
