Passafire Get to Be "Anthropologists on the Road" When Touring

Summer might be nearing an end, but there are still a few lingering moments of hot and sticky musical goodness to look forward to, like the third and final installment of Propaganda's indoor/outdoor pool party concert series, Summer Daze.

This Sunday, Savannah, GA, reggae-rock outfit Passafire will headline along with Stick Figure and the Heavy Pets to make up a roster of 20 acts ripping it all day long -- noon to midnight -- on two stages at the downtown Lake Worth venue. If the first two days in the series were any indication, this say-goodbye-to-summer bash is going to be a blow-out.

In preparation for Sunday's block party music marathon, we got to know Passafire singer and guitarist Ted Bowne, who took a break from a hectic schedule of touring and new album prep to chat with us about the band's roots at SCAD, the tight-knit Savannah music scene, and his top five songs of summer.
