At this point it’s pretty clear Dan Boeckner is one of the coolest dudes in the indie rock music world.

Not only is he in the reunited Wolf Parade and was one-half of the RIP Handsome Furs, his newest band Operators are pretty rippin’ in their own right.

I spoke to Boeckner about all these things and more in a feature for SOCAN’s Words & Music magazine.
