We invited Brooklyn-band Wakey! Wakey! – frontman Michael Grubbs and his merry band of musicians – into our lair for an early-afternoon hootenanny. The Cobras were fueled by a big old slumber party, sleeping in a real pile the night before and waking to Jables cooking up a breakfast feast. The band was just returning from a trip to North Carolina. We got together and made beautiful music.

Yeasayer’s “Ambling Alp” was stuck in our heads all winter and we got to wondering how violins could replace synths. Enter Brooklyn’s beautiful Wakey!Wakey! and the beginning of a series.

Cobra Den Invitationals: Our favorite people. In our favorite places. Reinterpreting our favorite things.
