Pack A.D. to play Bogotá’s Blues DC festival

By Adrian Mack

And in this week’s news of the weird, the Pack A.D. will be continuing its world-domination campaign with a trip to Colombia for Bogotá’s Blues DC festival, taking place in the first week of November. Calling from a motel room in Rockport, Illinois, bemused drummer Maya Miller explained to the Straight how she and guitarist-vocalist Becky Black came to be included on the same bill as Colombian heroes Blind Charlie and Smoking Underdog. “There was this fella who worked at a radio station there, and he had contacted us a year and a half ago, said he really liked the album, and he kinda Gmail-chatted me about this festival. I was like, ‘Okay, whatever,’ and then all of a sudden we’re playing it.” Details were ironed out once the Pack A.D.’s label, Mint Records, “scrambled to find a translator”, added Miller. “The only thing that’s a major concern right now,” she continued, “is that we have to get back to Vancouver in time to get a million shots—typhoid, yellow fever, that sort of thing. It’s crazy. Plus, I get all those shots in my arm, and then we play a show the same night. That’ll be fun.” The band has three appearances lined up for Blues DC, which could turn into four if Miller and Black decide to join the festival-closing all-star blues jam, which according to its Web site features todos los artistas. “There’s an all-star blues jam?” asked a surprised Miller. “That’s really funny. I’m sure it’ll be great.”
