Guitarist and vocalist Danielle McConaghy and bassist Jonah Hunter of Greenville band Tom Angst joined The Fringe for memes, pizza and podcast recording, of course. 

This week on The Fringe, we sought an artist outside of Charleston who's been gaining momentum on emotional, nostalgia-laced indie rock. Tom Angst of Greenville played a show at the Tin Roof on Saturday night and then joined us in the studio on Sunday afternoon. 


We've played Tom Angst before on The Fringe, but this was our first time sitting down with and interviewing the Greenville indie band. 

Amid thunderstorms and a meme and pizza break, the band talks more about music and life, along with playing two songs live. There are also new tracks from The Dumbest Kids in School and Dead Swells, both premiered by Charleston Scene. You'll also hear new Nathan and Eva, Michael Flynn and Infinitikiss. 

Hear all of that and more on this week's episode of The Fringe. You can listen now.
