The Paste Happiest Hour: What We Do in the Shadows + Ben Nichols of Lucero

Tune in today, Thursday, April 30, for the latest episode of The Paste Happiest Hour, our daily livestream interview and music show hosted by Paste editor-in-chief Josh Jackson.

Today’s episode begins with Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillen and Mark Proksch of FX’s What We Do in the Shadows at 5pm ET, followed by Lucero frontman Ben Nichols at 5:25.

We begin with the cast of What We Do in the Shadows, Natasia Demetriou (vampire Nadja), Harvey Guillén (familiar Guillermo) and Mark Proksch (energy vampire Colin Robinson) us for a discussion of the hilarious FX comedy. The new season finds Guillermo wrestling with his family’s vampire-hunting heritage, even as he dreams of one day getting turned by his master.

Then we’re joined by Ben Nichols of roots-rock band Lucero. The Memphis quintet has a dozen studio albums to their name, from 2000’s The Attic Tapes through 2018’s Liberty & Lament, recorded at the legendary Sam Phillips Recording Service in the band’s hometown. Watch Lucero at the Paste Studio in New York last year.
