We listen to a lot of music and go to shows every week. It’s just what Ticketfly employees do, so every month we share our current tastes and upcoming shows on our calendars. Right now we’re loving STS9, Café Tacvba, My Jerusalem, Sun Glitters … and Christmas music of course!

Next upcoming show: Lettuce at Brooklyn Bowl
Most recent album purchase: Still listening to Arcade Fire’s “Reflektor”
Favorite lyrics or random fact: Bowie sat in on the “Reflektor” recording session and said he wanted to steal the song. Arcade Fire asked him to sing background vocals instead.

 

 

Name: Amélie
Department: Client Services
Now playing: The Shouting Matches
Next upcoming show: Kings Of Leon (who will play tons of pre-Only By The Night songs… right?!)
Most recent album purchase: Asaf Avidan
Favorite lyrics or random fact: In Quebec, in the 1960s, a lot of English hit songs were translated to French to appeal to the French speaking audience. I grew with these playing on the radio, so I sang along Les Baronets’ “Twiste et chante” (Twist and sing) before I even knew about “Twist and Shout”. “C’est fou mais c’est tout” has an awesome video too… And on the far left, that’s René Angelil, Celine Dion’s husband.

Next upcoming show: Princess at Mezzanine, 2/9 (SF Sketch Fest)
