Nine Questions 

When not exchanging bon mots with customers while presiding over the bar at Barrio Food and Drink, Shelli Piechura may be found painting, hosting late-night dance parties and extending her aesthetic presence at various downtown watering holes.

What was the first concert you ever saw?

Crystal Gayle--My mom dragged my twin sister and me to the Arizona State Fair just to see her. Mind you, I was 6.

What CDs are in your changer right now?

Atmosphere, Talking Heads, Pretenders, Tool, Billy Bragg and Wilco, Led Zeppelin, Wu-Tang Clan, Bad Brains and the Grateful Dead (not by choice!).

150 CDs, 100 cassettes, one LP.

Do you download music, and if so, legally or illegally?

No, I have a phobia of the Internet.

What was the first album you owned?

Alvin and the Chipmunks, A Chipmunk Christmas--it rocked!

What song would you like to have played at your funeral?

"Shiver Me Timbers" by Tom Waits.

Top-secret old-school dance parties with music provided by Salt-N-Pepa, Paula Abdul and Ms. Nasty.

What band or artist changed your life, and how?

But for my former chef Obie Hindman, I would not have the love and passion I do today for the butt rock.

Figurative gun to your head, what is your favorite album of all time?

Tom Waits, The Heart of Saturday Night.

  • Battle Acts: Sgt. Pepper Then vs. Sgt. Pepper Now

    We have no Summer of Love to ponder, no Vietnam War to protest, no miracle drug that's going to save us. But we do have an unpopular president and Sgt. Pepper to marvel over all over again. It's not the same, but it kinda is, and that's about the best splendid time that can be guaranteed for all in 2017.
