Superchunk Talks With Us About Their Last Show Ever, Which Will Never Happen


After chatting backstage at the Village Voice Media SXSW party with Surfer Blood (who told us about their Twittering philosophy), and Pains of Being Pure at Heart (who recounted an innocently embarrassing incident involving a condom), we cornered Merge Records honchos/Superchunk leaders Mac McCaughan and Laura Ballance to probe them about their best SXSW memories, an Austin club toilet that Mac doesn’t miss, and what Superchunk’s last show ever would be like. But they insist that such a thing will never happen–at least deliberately. That’s good news, right?
