'Waiting for that career-ending F-bomb': Catching up with Tony from MEST at 350 Fest by Yak Channel Podcast Network published on 2018-09-02T21:24:29Z In this episode, I sit down with Tony Lovato of Mest in the parking lot of this year's 350 Fest in Tinley Park. Discussed in this episode, sponsored by Boost Mobile: Looking back, what would Tony have done differently about Mest's major label run? Why an influential radio station wanted the band to change its name. The band's initial break-up, announced on MySpace. The band's return at Riot Fest, a few years ago. Is that tea in Tony's cup? It would have to be. We're in a car. 350 Fest is the first place where you can get a rug burn in a circle pit. Tony's a "fucking gambler." The claustrophobic attractions of the Museum of Science and Industry. I had a "radio flashback" listening to Tony talk. This is a rare Car Con Carne episode that is sans food.
