30 Seconds with Pentatonix's Mitch Grassi
Ever since Pentatonix won the third season of Sing Off, the group has only gotten better and better. We sat down with Mitch Grassi to see what we could learn about him in 30 seconds.
Rocks Off: What is the worst song in the world?
Mitch Grassi: "Cyclone" by Baby Bash. I think we all know why.
RO: What is the best lyric in the world?
MG: "My self-worth measured in text-back tempo," from "Half Life" by Imogen Heap. Pretty apropos for our 21st-century obsession with technology and relying on texts from that "special someone" to get us through our day.
Also, fun fact, "my self-worth measured in" was a lyric I used to try and work into my own songs before this one even came out!
RO: Someone throws a beer bottle at you onstage. What do you do?
MG: Hope it's not broken, and completely full.
RO: Without worrying about space, time or the laws of physics, what would be the ultimate gig?
MG: Somewhere in Iceland on a gorgeous mountain range. It's my dream destination.
RO: What would you buy with a million dollars?
MG: A super-nice modern house in a secluded, scenic area of the world. And a corgi.
RO: What would you buy with your last dollar?
MG: A Snickers bar.
RO: If you could canonize another musician, who would it be and of what would he or she be the patron saint?
MG: Azealia Banks, Patron Saint of Ratchet.
RO: What will be written beneath the giant statue future generations erect in your honor?
MG: "Bad Mitches like me is hard to come by."
Pentatonix plays Thursday, March 14 at House of Blues, 1204 Caroline. Doors open at 7 p.m.
