Marika Hackman released her Sub Pop debut, "I'm Not Your Man," in June. The British singer-songwriter recruited London quartet The Big Moon as her band for the album and subsequent American tour. The Big Moon adds a vicious punk rock edge to much of the record, but the band is just as capable playing Hackman's subdued folk songs.

Hackman and the members of The Big Moon stopped into the CPR Performance Studio the day after a gig at Lost Lake Lounge. They played four songs and spoke with Alisha Sweeney about how their musical collaboration began, their pre-show rituals during the American tour and the London music scene.
