An Interview with the Hafner.
Who is HAFNER?
Travis Hafner was a portly baseball player
who outgrew his use and is currently coaching
college ball. His nickname, Pronk, is a combination
of ‘project’ and ‘donkey’. I think we can all relate
to that. Burd is the singer and primary songwriter,
Woods plays the guitar, writes and is team-mom,
Davy is plays drums and Jimmy was the subject
for Jorgen Leth’s ‘The Perfect Man’ and plays bass.
Where are you guys from and how
did you guys meet?
Burd and I (Brian) are from Daly City and San Mateo
respectively. We met at an all-boys catholic
school just like the Beatles, even though we are
not fans of either.
What’s the last song you listened to?
Wallflowers - One Headlight.
How do you feel about the music scene currently
in San Francisco?
Well, no one goes to shows anymore, but
that’s cause there are no good bands, but also
cause they’d rather be raving at a corporatesponsored
Skrillex concert. I don’t know, it actually
does seem like there’s a bunch of stuff
still going on, but it’s the people who are most
concerned with promoting that you hear about
and usually they suck, ie Third Eye Blind and The
Beatles. People simply have their own priorities
and that’s fine.
Pink, Danzig, Jesus Lizard, Matchbox 20 and
Shout outs to any artist?
Big shout out to our boys in Black Flag and
