What was the first concert you ever saw?
I saw *NSYNC in 1999 when I was 12. I am a product of my generation, and honesty is important, right?
What are you listening to these days?
Little Dragon, Best Coast, Tanlines, Architecture in Helsinki, the Los Angeles band Kisses, and the Cincinnati band Walk the Moon.
What was the first album you owned?
I actually got two tapes when I got my first Walkman in 1996: the Space Jam soundtrack, and Boyz II Men's Cooleyhighharmony.
What artist, genre, or musical trend does everyone seem to love, but you just don't get?

What musical act, current or defunct, would you most like to see perform live?
I'm a little too young to have ever seen the Pixies live, but I can only imagine it would be amazing. If only I could trade the Pixies for *NSYNC in question one ...
Musically speaking, what is your favorite guilty pleasure?
I love my Top 40 jams! My recent guiltiest pleasure is "Call Me Maybe."
What song would you like to have played at your funeral?
I'd like to have Seashell Radio perform "Tsunami." Will you guys do that for me? If not, play "Call Me Maybe."
What band or artistchanged your life, and how?
I heard The Bends by Radiohead when I was a freshman in high school, and it was my first taste of noncommercial genius. If only I could trade Radiohead for *NSYNC in answer one ...
Figurative gun to your head, what is your favorite album of all time?
69 Love Songs by the Magnetic Fields never gets old, because it's so diverse. Is it cheating because it's actually three CDs?
