When we heard PAPA's singer and drummer Darren Weiss has been running a minor league barber shop out of his home, we had to tag along for a trim and ask a few questions about his new hobby.
It’s a bit ironic that PAPA’s music feels so from-the-gut when the band’s lead songwriter — our friend Darren Weiss — is such a cogitator. In Darren’s poetry, he lets us into his psyche a little more, giving passage to intimate creative moments. It’s how we can know him better, as a friend and artist. The poems are thoughtful, sexy, fun, often just really fucking funny, and worth appreciation.
