Best concert experience: I’m the worst at choosing bests – they all have special places in my heart for different reasons…but top 3 would maaaybe be:
1) The XX at the Fox – You know when performers just rip open their chests and show you their entire hearts and souls? That happened and it was magical.
2) The Sounds – They did a 10-year anniversary tour of Dying to Say This to You in December, and my heart nearly burst from the energy and overall badassery.
3) Green Day at the UC Theatre – smaller venue, HUGE performance, and everyone in the audience was a super fan. Swoon.

Most recent album purchase: Grimes – Art Angels
Favorite Lyric: “But you can set sail to the west if you want to
And pass the horizon, ’til I can’t even see you
Far from here

I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my way”
-My Way, Frank Sinatra
