Andrew Dwiggins of Greenwheel

   Greenwheel has been touring relentlessly for the past year and a half in support of Soma Holiday. They have been touring with everyone from Flickerstick to Saliva to our Lady Peace and it has paid off as Philly is popping for the band every time they hit town. Finally back in town as a headliner, I had the chance to sit down with guitarist Andy Dwiggins before their show at the Pontiac Grille. We talked about getting played on MTV, MP3s, and even worked in what its like having to win over crowds.
