Worst pre-Hinge date?
I haven’t had many, thankfully. The worst was probably when I walked into an empty bar on a Saturday afternoon to for a first date. The first words out of her mouth were insults, before I could say anything, and they didn’t stop. I lasted about five minutes before I had to pull the ripcord - there weren’t enough drinks in the bar to cushion her terrible manners. That was the last time I used Tinder.
We hear you’re quite the live music junkie. Care to elaborate?
Yep, I’ll admit to that. I listen to a little bit of everything — indie, synth pop, folk, bluegrass, underground hip-hop, classic rock, and so on. I prefer to go to concerts for smaller, up-and-coming acts, because seeing them play intimate venues like Rickshaw Stop, The Independent, Brick and Mortar makes the entire show more personal and significant for me. Favorites right now include: PAPA, Grouplove, Ghost Beach, Wild Child, Misterwives, Walk The Moon, Magic Man, Smallpools, Carousel, Cherub, and Har Mar Superstar.
I also have a music blog, but it’s fairly lightweight (no copy, just what I’m currently listening to) but I’ve been pushing music to that blog for over 3 years, so it acts as a musical time capsule now, which is cool.
