S3E01 - Dan Boeckner (Operators / Wolf Parade)


Over the past 15 years, Dan Boeckner has become a well-known fixture of the North American indie-rock scene.

As one of the main members of Wolf Parade, Operators, Divine Fits, and the now-defunct Handsome Furs, he shows no signs of slowing down with new Operators and Wolf Parade albums set for release this year.

We caught up with Dan before the sold-out Operators Presents Handsome Furs show to discuss the personal and technical logistics of performing Handsome Furs material live, being bullied as a young teenager on Vancouver Island, and the surprising merits of Netflix's Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
