Fresh off their appearance at the 2011 VMAs earlier this month, MTV Posted artist Cobra Starship recently took the stage at Fueled By Ramen’s 15th Anniversary show and at a Buddy Holly tribute show to celebrate what would have been the late singer’s 75th birthday. Band member Victoria Asher was cool enough to check in from the road to discuss the tribute.
So things have been pretty nuts lately. The boys and I have had lots of traveling, lots of rehearsals, one-off shows, the VMAs and just recently, Gabe and I flew to Los Angeles for two days to play a Buddy Holly tribute show on what would have been Buddy’s 75th birthday — Sept. 7, 2011! My father Peter Asher produced a really fantastic record entitled Listen to Me. We’re on it along with our friends Patrick Stump, Zooey Deschanel and lots of other incredible musicians.
The show was amazing, and we got to perform with such great people. It was also incredibly exciting to meet Buddy Holly’s wife Elena Maria Holly and to watch her in the front row singing along and smiling. Here are a few video clips and photos from the show/rehearsals that you guys will hopefully enjoy.
