The Wild Moccasins aren't playing the Showcase this year, but we caught up Nick Cody and asked him what he was doing here.
Who are you here to see?
I want to see Buxton and the Tontons. I'm also going to play with Tontons, a song that Tom wrote and he's going to play guitar to it. I'm going to be on bass. Also, Fat Tony but I think he's playing the same time as the Tontons.
Who are your HPMA picks?
Nick Cody for Best Bassist. (Are you really nominated?) No, I'm not popular.
Best Local Song: I've never heard any of those songs, so I can't really say.
Best Guitarist: Adam Martinez of the Tontons.
Best Female Vocalist: Zahira Gutierrez
Best Miscellaneous Instrument: Geoffrey Muller
What have you been listening to lately?
Olivia Tremor Control, Brian Eno -- I got them on tour and have been listening to them.
How was your recent tour?
My favorite city was playing in Brooklyn -- both shows were very well attended. First we played at a punk, DIY place and the second night we played at an upscale, yuppie bar, which was awkward.
