The NewsHouse caught up with the Block Party special guests on the formation of the band, playing in front of their parents and holographic Tupac.

NewsHouse: Let’s start from scratch: how’d you two meet and when did you know it was time to make a band?

Sarah Barthel: We’ve been friends since we were 15 or 14 years old. We went to high school together and my neighbor was one of Josh’s best friends. It was just that little block where all the kids would come to hang out. Then I went to college and Josh went to New York to work on different bands and we both moved back upstate at the same time in 2005. We started hanging out and after about two years we decided to take the band seriously.
