The Pros & Cons Of Touring With A Baby According To Grouplove
Their Australian tour kicks off in Brissy tonight, February 9.
Californian indie-pop outfit Grouplove are in the country right bloody now, not only to headline Mountain Sounds and Party In The Paddock Festivals, but a couple of their own headline shows along the east coast. It's their first trip down here in more than 18 months, and over that time things have been a little different for husband-and-wife frontcouple Hannah Hooper and Christian Zucconi. A couple of years back they had a baby together, which as we're sure you can imagine changes the dynamic of the rock'n'roll touring lifestyle...or does it? We asked Hannah and Christian for a list of Pros and Cons when it comes to tour life with a baby to find out, check it out below along with those headline dates (more info/tickets HERE).
CON: We wake up every morning at 6am no matter what the night before looks like.
PRO: There is the love and innocence of a child around to keep people feeling those good vibrations.
CON: She loves a public breakdown/temper tantrum when we are trying to be low key.
PRO: We get to see every park and playground in every city rather then just the inside of the green room.
CON: We never chill out with our band mates cause we’re always running around.
PRO: We get in a midday nap with her.
CON: We’re always covered in food but probably would be without Willa on tour anyways.
PRO: Willa gets to see us do what we love every night.
CON: She already knows how to head-bang.
PRO: We get to eat a lot more pizza.
