Spotlights bassist Sarah Quintero delves deep and raps with Allen about, among other things, Liz Cheney, the ups and downs of being in a band with her husband Mario (turns out it's almost all ups), their time as a two-piece band traveling with backing drum tracks and how that helped them hone and shape their live show, the power of playing live, how silly and restrictive genre labels are for bands like theirs that successfully straddle several, why she doesn't care what anyone thinks about her career choices and we talk about when she realized she wasn't a part-time rocker who worked temp gigs; she had become a full-time musician and it was right.
