Department: Customer Support
Now playing: Lower Dens – To Die in L.A.
Best concert experience: (2013) Peaches pouring a bottle of champagne on my head at Public Works.
Next upcoming concert in January or beyond: Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Most recent album purchase: SOHN – Tremors
Favorite Lyric: “Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”
Department: Product Training
Now playing: NxWorries (Anderson.Paak & Knxwledge) “Suede”. Always. Forever. On repeat.
Best concert experience: This is a tough one, so I’m going with the most recent one. Seu Jorge Presents The Life Aquatic: A Tribute To David Bowie @ Union Transfer made my heart explode with joy. It was so beautiful and such a spot on tribute to such an incredible man. Plus the sea of red beanies just makes any Wes Anderson fan smirk.
Next upcoming concert in January or beyond: Phish New Years Eve run @ MSG, Run the Jewels @ The Electric Factory, and The Wood Brothers @ Union Transfer. Plus it’s not for a while, but can we talk about Okilly Dokilly (the Ned Flanders inspired metal group) @ Kung Fu Necktie?!
Most recent album purchase: I’ve got my eye on Ween’s limited edition green vinyl of The Mollusk.
Favorite Lyric: “I hope you never get off Fridays, And you work at a Friday’s, that’s always busy on Fridays.” – Action Bronson feat. Chance The Rapper – Baby Blue
Now playing: Pandora station built around the album: Come From Heaven by Alpha
Best concert experience: Difficult to choose just one. But two that stick out:
1. Pulp at Warfield 2012 because we all waited almost two decades to see them! And did they deliver! Plus everyone, and I mean EVERYONE was at that show, so it was a party!
2. Esthero at The Independent 2006 – An acoustic, impromptu, unrehearsed show, where, a 30 min story about how Esthero met Prince for the second time, and in the process humiliated both Mary Kate Olsen and Lindsay Lohan, alone, was worth the price of admission.
Next upcoming concert in January or beyond: PJ Harvey at the Masonic
Favorite Album released in 2016: A Seat At The Table – Solange
Most Listened to Album in 2016: Deep In The Iris – Braids
Most recent album purchase: New Radiohead record
Favorite Lyric: “And my big secret, gonna hover over your life, gonna keep you reachin’ when I’m gone like yesterday. When I’m high like heaven, when I’m strong like music, cuz I’m slow like honey, and heavy with mood.” – “Slow Like Honey” – Fiona Apple
Now playing: Silversun Pickups
Best concert experience: Roger Waters performs Dark Side of the Moon (Oracle Arena in 2007)
Next upcoming concert in January or beyond: Voodoo Glow Skulls in Santa Cruz (The Catalyst in February)
