I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME have opened up a discussion with their fans on social media about the concept of paid meet and greets. 

The duo, comprised of Dallon Weekes and Ryan Seaman, created a Twitter poll asking about meet and greets and if they should be paid.

“Meet & Greets: We’ve only ever done a handful of them, & they’ve never been paid. I’m still not sure how I feel about that. Extra income on tour would be very helpful, but is it exploitative of fans? I’m still sort of wrestling with the ethics of it all. What do y’all think?” they wrote.

The poll started a huge dialogue about the pros and cons of meet and greets and how they could be improved to better service the fans and the artists.

One person said they didn’t like the small amount of time fans typically get to spend with the bands at meet and greets, which is why the band would have to limit them.

Other fans suggested that iDKHOW BUT THEY FOUND ME make their meet and greets more interactive with like crafts, games, q&a sessions and more, which the band was a fan of.

Other fans who were against the idea brought up the point that paid meet and greets create a barrier between the artist and the fans. Also, they said it’s not fair for those who cannot afford to pay for VIP tickets. The band responded to both points, furthering the conversation.

You can see some other dialogue from the thread below.

I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME gave Riot Fest attendees a potential taste of their new album during their set. The band wowed the crowd with “Lights Go Down,” a track that might be on their full-length debut for Fearless Records in 2020.

Judging by Seaman’s exuberance behind the kit and Weekes hitting his bass a bit harder than usual in the middle, it is obvious they are stoked to be playing new stuff. Man does not live by EPs (however great) and Beck covers alone: Not surprisingly, “Lights Go Down” is a diamond cut, a driving pop number that hits all of the sweet spots (’70s glam, ’80s new wave and 21st century energy) we’ve come to expect from these two.

In the last few months, we’ve been hearing all kinds of rumors about the possibility of some brand new recordings from iDKHOW before year’s end. We’d be ecstatically happy to see these “Lights” in our playlist queue before the end of the year. (Hop to it, dudes.) But with all the references that Weekes has made in interviews from the usual suspects (Sparks, T. Rex, Queen, Starlight Mints) to the kind of stuff your great grandparents banged their heads to (the 1930’s combo the Ink Spots), we know to never, ever predict anything iDKHOW do.

Check out the performance of the unreleased “Lights Go Down” below.
