On a sweltering Sunday afternoon in early July, KSLU General Manager Caleigh Horan embarked on her first interview in a series she has deemed Caleigh's Corner. Her first guests in this thrilling saga were The Slaps and Manwolves, two Chicago-based bands that played RKDE on Sunday, July 8th. The St. Louis stop was an early part of a three-week "Southern Hospitality" tour that extends through July 22nd.

There was much diversity to be found among the groups; The Slaps are heavy in beach-rock guitar while Manwolves incorporate elements of hip-hop into their serving of indie (DON'T call it Ska, though). Fresh off of 6 hour car ride down the always thrilling I-55, the boys were giddy and random, allowing the conversation to transverse from their Wisconsin farming experiences to their latest favorite memes. With wit and sarcasm and charm, these band members filled the KSLU studio with laughs through the entirety of their visit.
