This past Saturday at the 2nd date of this summer’s Vans Warped Tour I spent a few minutes with Lynn Gunn who sings for PVRIS.
We played a little game called ‘Would You Rather?’ & this is how it went:
Q: How’s your Warped Tour going so far? I know it’s only day 2 of the tour.
Lynn: Our first day was very hectic, but it was a great day.
Q: You guys got bumped to the main stage at Pomona?
Lynn: We did. We had all of our stuff the night before by the stage we were supposed to be playing at, then we found out like super early in the morning they were all ‘Just kidding you’re on the main stage!’ & we were like ‘Noooo!’ & we had to bust our butts getting all our stuff over, but it was totally worth it. It was a good thing.
Q: Nice. So now what we’re going to do now is play a game of PVRIS Would you rather, so first question: Would you rather be surprised on stage by WWE superstar Seth Rollins, or hologram Goku?
Lynn: Definitely Seth Rollins. I think Alex (Guitarist) would like Goku, but me personally would like Seth Rollins.
Q: Would you rather be surprised on stage by Seth Rollins, or motivational speaker Shia LaBeouf?
Lynn: Oohhh, Shia LaBeouf!
Me: He should just be on Warped Tour doing motivational speeches.
Lynn: He should! & he should be performing ‘Even Stevens’ skits.
Q: Would you rather have ‘PVRIS’ tattooed on your forehead, or have to yell ‘PVRIS!’ every time you shook someone’s hand?
Lynn: Hmm. Both are pretty…jerky. I don’t know if I’m allowed to swear. I think the more subtle one would be the yelling ‘PVRIS!’ thing. I’d be like ‘sorry, I have a condition where I just yell things.’
Q: Would you rather have ‘Aladdin’ or ‘Jurassic World’ on mute while having your album ‘White Noise” on?
Lynn: Oohh, Aladdin.
Q: Would you rather go back in time to meet your ancestors, or go to the future to meet your great Grandchildren?
Lynn: Probably meet my ancestors.
Q: You don’t want to go into the future and see, like, flying cars?
Lynn: No, I don’t want to see what this world’s going to turn into.
Q: I know you had a surprise main stage set on the Shark stage yesterday, but you’re normally going to be on the Journey’s Left Foot Stage for all of Warped?
Lynn: Yep. Correct.
Me: Have a good summer on Warped Tour & thanks for playing.
Lynn: Why, thank you.
