If you imagine a concert, you probably picture the stage. But for performers, there's a whole other space tucked away from the public eye: the green room. Inside, they can find food, fellow artists, and hopefully a little peace.

In this new video series, The Current interviews artists in the green rooms of beloved local venues. Here, Manchita (GRRRL PRTY) and Jeremy Ylvisaker (The Cloak Ox, Alpha Consumer) talk about their pre-show rituals, the time Jeremy got called a poser, and Chita's first performance with GRRRL PRTY.
