Jason Collett: No Bum Bags

Jason Collett on fanny packs.

Jason Collett I talked with Arts and Crafts recording artist Jason Collett yesterday over the phone while he was down at South by Southwest. Even though he had a show in an hour and a half, he was more than willing to answer ridiculous questions.

I had read this blog post from someone on the tour, saying Collett had received a fanny pack as a gift from a fan. Logically, I was curious: is Collett a fanny pack kinda guy?

He couldn’t remember having received a fanny pack at all when I asked him, though it doesn’t seem like it would make much of a difference.

“I’m not a fanny pack kinda guy,” says Collett. “You wouldn’t catch me dead with one.”

Keep it mind, folks, if you were planning on bringing him a gift when he’s at the Exchange on April 2. Check out his MySpace where you can listen to all of his new album, Rat a Tat Tat, and watch out for a story on him in an upcoming prairie dog.
