Four days before Markus was supposed to be in Ottawa I came up with a great idea to interview Markus before his show. Club contact, Interviewer set, questions submitted to Markus, everything a go.
As the night went on things started falling apart. Original interviewer, Lexxy, was not able to make it, and she so badly wanted to do the interview. Luckily I had contacted Anne and found out she was in Ottawa that night, she war bar tending, but she was here. Then through reading Markus’s twitter updates we found out his flight to Ottawa from Montreal was delayed. Only a two hour drive by car.
Markus did end up making it to Ottawa for his show, started way late, but here! But no pre-show interview for me. At around 2am Anne showed up, we quickly went over the interview questions, and then made our way back stage to snag Markus before he rushed off to Toronto for the Labor of Love.
We were given five mins to interview Markus, so we pretty much just ran into the green room sat down and started. I was shoved in a corner and couldn’t really move the whole time. So what you see here is uncut raw footage. Gorilla style with all the mistakes, camera shakes and all.
Markus was amazing to let us do this, and Anne was also great despite doing this last minute.
