Self-proclaimed team motto: “We throw glitter, we make it rain…we love CalVegas, bang-a-rang!”
[Sidenote: they also have a team handshake – ask them to do it on stage at a screening]
Good afternoon Team CalVegas. Please state your name and where you’re from for the record.
Courtney McGuire (CM): I’m Courtney and I’m from Portland, Oregon.
Chelsey Eschevarria (CE): Chelsey, Tarpon Springs, Florida.
Logan Richards (LR): My name is Logan and I’m from Mineral Wells, West Virginia.
Martha Pelayo (MP): I’m Martha and I’m from Monterrey, Mexico.
Martha, does anyone ever tell you that you look like Miranda Kerr?
MP: No, who is that?
She’s just a Victoria Secret supermodel who is married to Orlando Bloom. No biggie. How did you all learn about Invisible Children?
CM: I watched a Fall Out Boy music video and saw a link to IC. I went on youtube and watched The Rough Cut.
CE: My freshman year of college at UCF, I went to a screening on campus. I interned this past summer and was a roadie last semester.
LR: A friend invited me to The Rescue in Huntington, WV. I went and then watched The Rough Cut, and then booked screenings at my college (WVU-Parkersburg).
MP: Roadies came to my school and I saw The Rescue. I went to LA in 2010 for the Bamboozle Festival and met Kenny and Alex. Then I hosted a screening at my school last semester (ITESM).
Any personal habits that your teammates will be annoyed with after tour?
CM: I can’t wake up in the morning; I sleep like a rock
CE: I have lots and lots of energy. And I’m a stickler for time.
You should be in charge of waking Courtney up from her deep sleep. It’s time! It’s time! You’re welcome in advance for solving your problems.
LR: I’m stubborn about not eating fruits and vegetables, and I’m on a team of vegetarians and vegans. I goof off a lot and like to say random things that don’t sense. And I’m really talkative.
You don’t say.
MP: I can’t stop laughing when I start (proceeds to laugh…and laugh).
What is your favorite football team? As with other roadie teams, if you don’t have one, I will choose the Chargers for you by default.
CM: I don’t watch football. So, Chargers?
CE: Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
LR: The Boston Red Sox.
MP: Pittsburgh Steelers.
I’m not really happy with any of your answers, but this is not about me. What is your favorite food?
CM: Dessert…any kind.
And finally, who is your celebrity crush?
CM: Male or female?
CM: Emma Watson and Darren Criss.
CE: Tim Allen. And Taye Diggs. I have jungle fever.
LR: Natalie Portman and Drew Barrymore.
MP: Angelina Jolie.
Oh, Angelina. Yes. She really does surpass all reasoning. Well Team CalVegas, good luck on your adventure. Stop at nothing.
