Our next featured Crossroads Music Fest artist is The Good Foot, who posits itself as the Seven Saviors of Soul. We get the inside scoop from guitarist Tim Braun.

The Deli: Gun to your head, 1 sentence to describe your music. What is it?

Tim Braun: If there was a gun to my head, I would say our type of music is, "Hey man, take whatever you want, just don't shoot me in the head."

The Deli: Tell us about your latest release or upcoming shows. What can we expect?

Tim: Crossroads Music Fest! We don't have any other big dates on the books currently. We hope to have another 45 out by years end.

The Deli: What does "supporting local music" mean to you?

Tim: Buying a bands merch, paying a cover to see a band, supporting the establishment that has the show, telling your friends about your favorite local bands, bring sandwiches for the band to the show, KEEPING YOUR EYES PEELED FOR A WHITE '95 GMC 15-PASSENGER RALLY VAN....there are a hundred ways to support artists.

The Deli: Who are your favorite "local" musicians right now?

Tim: The Making Movies guys are killin' it. Diverse is great, The Hearts of Darkness is great, The Grisly Hand is rad.

The Deli: Who are your favorite not-so-local musicians right now?

Tim: DIO.

The Deli: What bands are you most excited to see at Crossroads Music Fest this year?

Tim: We're actually booked Saturday night, so I'll miss the big night of CMF...balls.

The Deli: What is your ultimate fantasy bill to play on?

Tim: House band for The Colbert Report. Bam.

The Deli: Would you rather spend the rest of your life on stage or in the recording studio?

Tim: I hope I don't ever have to choose one or the other.

The Deli: A music-themed Mount Rushmore. What four faces are you putting up there and why?

Tim: This one's too hard.

The Deli: All right, give us the rundown. Where all on this big crazy web can you be found?

Tim: http://www.thegdft.com

The Good Foot will be playing the pre-party at Crossroads KC at Grinder's this Friday at 11:30 with The Grisly Hand and The Supernauts. Check out their fabulous brand of soul!
