10 Questions for HB Riots

Posted By Emily Hope, Tuesday, September 20, 2016

For years, AdJam, ThinkLA's Annual Battle of the Agency Bands, has unleashed the raw, savage – if unheralded – musical talent upon an unsuspecting planet. The top agency bands compete, and the winner receives the coveted AdJam Axe, plus bragging rights in the industry for the whole year. 

This year's AdJam is at The Novo DTLA and we are ready for the battle. We're profiling each of the bands to help you decide whom you should root for come decision day. Check out what we asked HB RIOTS (Innocean), and make sure you're registered for AdJam on Sept. 22. #ThinkAdJam


HB RIOTS - Innocean

Why do think so many ad people seem to be musicians? Ad people need a creative outlet after having their dreams crushed on a daily basis.

What’s the hardest kind of ad-musician to find? One that accepts meeting invites.
Are you involved in a band beyond the Adjam? Can we get tickets? Yes! The tickets are usually $135, but you’ll get the bro deal.
Is there a genre or band that is your agency’s soundtrack? Creative Dissonance.
Is there a battle for the music played in your office? What kind of music wins? 80's and Emo run neck and neck.
What is the part of an ad presentation that’s most like performing? Pushing "play".
John or Paul? John AND Paul.
Jay Z or Kanye? ZZZZZZZZ.
Mick or Keith? They're different people?
John Mayer or Permanent Hearing Loss? I'm not familiar with PHL, but I like the name.
