I grew up in Washington, DC, but I missed out on most of the cool bands (Minor Threat, Bad Brains) because I went to a tiny all-girls Catholic school in the suburbs. Where we did have a big-name go-go band play at a school dance one time, so it wasn’t all bad. Oh, and one of my classmates gave me that first Doug E. Fresh album on cassette and I still know all the words to those songs. In college I discovered ska music and was obsessed for the next 8 years, but then I got restless and moved to San Francisco to start over. That was more than 20 years ago. Now I’m content to listen to whatever’s on the radio, and I’d rather get up early and take some dogs on a nature adventure than stay out all night at the rock show. I’m a writer and editor by training, but my superpowers are decluttering, dogsitting, and making other people laugh when I’m being 100% serious. Midcentury antique stores and golden retrievers are my Kryptonite.
My TueNight: A quick stop at the local dive bar to say hi to friends and their dogs, then in bed before 9 with a book and/or Netflix.
