Black Map frontman Ben Flanagan didn’t exactly struggle when it came time for college acceptance letters to come rolling in. The cerebral singer got into several top schools – but rather than stay on the east coast, he chose to head to what he felt was a hot spot: San Francisco. It was a move that would not only take him far from home, but would seriously alter the course of his life.
And by the way, Don and I have decided we’d like to put a little twist on our interviews – choosing the weirdest, most random, or busy spot in each venue. I think the staircase leading to the merch area was a brilliant choice, and I’m sure all the crew/roadies for Nothing More and As Lions that had to circumvent us appreciated it too.
Thanks, by the way, to Black Map’s support team. Sometimes in this biz you find a bit of…attitude, especially in the hours before showtime. These guys were absolutely great, charming and cool. It’s much appreciated!
