Iron Horse Brewery: Why the switch from the name Hair Storm to Hair Nation?
Hair Nation: We were never Hair Storm. We have been Hair Nation since 2007. We were originally based out of Las Vegas, NV
IHB: Well that’s embarrassing…. We’ll just move on from that.
IHB: How did Hair Nation become a band and why 80s rock?
Hair Nation: We became a band to give the people of our generation something to have. Nothin but a good time too like back in the 80’s.
IHB: That’s totally radical that you’re taking us back to the 80’s. We hope you bring mix tapes with you.
IHB: What is the best meal to eat before a gig?
Hair Nation: Most of us do not eat before shows.
IHB: Because you’re drinking indie beer right? Makes sense, gotta cut a little loose before you put on a great show.
IHB: How many hours do you spend on your hair a day?
Hair Nation: At least 2 hrs fluffing.
IHB: You should own stock in AquaNet.
IHB: If you could go on tour with another 80s band, which one would it be and why?
Hair Nation: It would be Poison or Van Halen. We are all about having a good time.
IHB: We’d want to go runnin’ with the devil too.
IHB: How does the band like to Paddy On? Paddy On means celebrate St. Patrick’s Day for those who aren’t in the IHB know.
Hair Nation: We all about rolling in green Jello while listening to our fav 80’s hair metal tunes.
IHB: How does your hair stay so great when you’re rolling in green Jello? What’s the secret?
IHB: Which marshmallow in the lucky charms cereal is the best and why?
Hair Nation: I can’t answer because we do not eat breakfast. We party all night and get up for lunch!
IHB: *Adds Lucky Charms to Hair Nation’s lunch rotation.
