INTERVIEW : THE CURIOUS MYSTERY x  LIGHTYEAR
Round three of our Sunday Night Live music residency interviews — a tag game of bright minds performing in the lobby at Ace Hotel New York during March and — in this case — April. On the 25th, you’ll find the svelte voice of Lightyear filling the rafters, and then The Curious Mystery takes the reins every Sunday night in April. See our previous posts with Hallways x Drew Victor and Melaena Cadiz x Ryann, and read on.
LIGHTYEAR:
Band member hidden talents? (Not related to playing the instruments you play in the band.) ……Go!
THE CURIOUS MYSTERY:
Ok, Nic makes really good salsa and guacamole. Not so much of a hidden talent because he will for sure let you know if the subject in any way comes up. Marian is good at table sports (but not Air Hockey). Johnny will beat you at Pac-Man if you are drunk. Shana’s good at volleyball she thinks, but it’s been a long time.
If you could only listen to one band for the rest your life who would you choose? What about for the rest of the week?
LIGHTYEAR:
For the rest of my life: predictably, The Beatles. 
For the rest of this week: Phantogram. Currently obsessed with latest EP, “Nightlife.”
Next question: What is the story behind the name, The Curious Mystery?
THE CURIOUS MYSTERY:
I suppose The Curious Mystery would be life. Or death. 
The story behind the band name is much more mundane. We were scrolling through old radio show titles from pre-TV days and “the Curious Mystery of…” was a common beginning, we just liked the sound of it and thought the redundancy was funny.
Question for Lightyear: Can we sleep at your house?
LIGHTYEAR:
Sure you can sleep at my house, all that’s required is that you like sassy females and felines. All house guests must bring whiskey.
