Our Teen Press Corps interviewed Alan Palomo of the band Neon Indian at Pitchfork Music Festival in July, channeling their musical knowledge and interviewing skills during an on-the-spot Q&A with Palomo, who is old enough to reference MySpace but young enough to know about Grand Theft Auto V. Read on at McSweeney's, and look out for our Teen Press Corps' forthcoming collection of music writing And the Rest is Noise at the Wicker Park Secret Agent Supply Co.
