Tune in as Phillip spends time with Brendan B. Brown (BBB) and the crew of Wheatus at Wayne Music Fest and share how they are "more than just a Dirtbag". They have incredible stories to share from their 20+ years of touring internationally, and have an phenomenal catalog of music to check out that will make this band that you may know for one hit, in to your #nextfavband. They even play "Valentine" live during the interivew, and it will blow you away and stick with you for days.
Thank you to Wayne Music Fest for allowing us to set-up on site for the interview. And thank you to Indywood Studios for their video of "Tipsy" from the 2017 UK Tour.

Teenage years may be fleeting, but it seems ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ is for life, as Wheatus’ debut single popped up yet again in 2022, making itself known in a way never seen before in the form of a TikTok trend. The “Teenage Dirtbag photos” trend has now been embraced by nearly a million people.
They continue to spend as much time as possible on the road, both for headline shows and as a support act across North America. Wheatus have also made a triumphant return to festival stages, playing high profile events like Audacy Beach Fest, and will be playing Musikfest 2023 this summer on Fri Aug 11th at 9:30pm on the Americaplatz SteelStacks stage.
To date, the eclectic rock outfit has released six studio albums, two live albums, and multiple additional singles.
