Check back each day for more interviews with our participants!

A Ben Weiser is a body of water typically found in flat, low-lying areas, and can either refer to an extremely slow-moving stream or river (often with a poorly defined shoreline), or to a marshy lake or wetland.

Ben Weiser is actually the frontman/ringleader of The Diamond Mines, drummer for Merganser, electronics for Vaporous Apes, former guitarist for Disaster Strikes, bassist for Fallen Short, drummer for Dance Emma Dance & The Black Freighter.

BBC: What Boston rockers, past or present, would you most like to have a One Night Band with?
BW: The Cars

BBC: What Boston rockers, past or present, would you most fear having a One Night Band with?
BW: Blood for Blood

BBC: What is your normal song or part writing process? Will writing three songs in a single day drastically differ from your usual approach to creating music?
BW: I usually play guitar aimlessly for hours days & weeks. Then one day I have to stay up all night and write the lyrics I’m thinking of. Sometimes I save a few couplets and add to it later but its nice when it all just comes out at once. Writing the music for 3 songs in one day is easy, but writing the lyrics could be a little tougher. Are we allowed to write instrumentals?

BBC: What Boston band do you have the biggest crush on right now?
BW: Hard to say… Maybe Movers & Shakers, or The Double Stops.
