Favorite Lyric: “Every time I comb my hair / Thoughts of you get in my eyes / You’re a sinner, I don’t care / I just want your creamy thighs” – Prince & The Revolution
Now playing: Shigeto – Silver Linings
Best concert experience: There are a lot of great concert experiences to choose from but one that really stands out is Air at Outside Lands 2016. It was their first US show since 2010 and they played such an incredibly beautiful set. The crowd was also a big factor in the experience. Some lovely people off to the side were blowing massive bubbles that would float their way over the crowd and seemingly morph and break apart to the music. It was such a fantastic addition to an already amazing show.

Now playing: Francis and the Lights; Future ‘HNDRXX’ album
Best concert experience: Hmm..Blink 182 2011 Honda Civic Tour at Jiffy Lube Live because I won tickets on the radio and Travis Barker floated above the audience with his drum set for the encore.
…Or being in the pit at Kanye’s Saint Pablo tour in LA last October (Kanye actually did a full show).
