When Dylan Baldi Came to Town: An Interview with the mastermind behind the Cleveland lo-fi pop-punk band Cloud Nothings
By Carolyn Haynes
About an hour before Dylan Baldi and fellow bandmates played at Johnny Brenda’s back in April 2011, I had a chance to sit downstairs and talk with him about what this band was all about. While he didn’t blow up “Wavves fast”, he has gotten a considerable amount of attention in the past three years. The current lineup (which features TJ Duke, Jayson Gerycz and Joe Boyer, along with Baldi, of course) has only been together for a year and a half and already they’ve toured Europe three times supporting acts like Yuck and Toro Y Moi. Not to mention playing SXSW two years in a row, touring with Wavves, and signing to Carpark Records.
