A Sunny Day in Glasgow Interview: Brunch, Gruel, Peanut Butter, and more Brunch.


I sat down with 5 of the 6 members of A Sunny Day in Glasgow before their show at the Great Scott.  They talked about their love for brunch (or breakfast) and some of their favorite spots to eat.

You can find their restaurant recommendations listed on our Food Map at the following link:

Due to some technical difficulties with the recording (including issues with the first few minutes of the interview), there’s just the transcript from the interview below, starting about ~3 minutes into the interview

[On the topic of brunch] 

Josh: I love a good biscuit. Nothing like getting really carbed up and then sitting in a van for 7 hours. 

Ben: It’s good to eat a good fatty first meal, and then trickle it out throughout the day. 

Adam: It’s good for morale…

Ben: You’ve been up since 3 or 4 in the morning the night before and you wake up at 9 or 10, so you’ve gotten five hours of sleep…

Jen: On someone’s floor.

Ben: Yeah, on someone’s floor.  You feel terrible.  You get a little respite before you have to go in the van for another 8 or 9 hours.

Tiff: Is the brunch enough to hold you over until dinner?

Ben: No, I eat a ton.  Every time we stop. 

Ben: I always keep peanut butter in the van.  I make my own peanut butter at home.  I’m very passionate about peanut butter.

Tiff: Do you have jars of peanut butter in your tour van for this whole tour?
