2015 –

EmpressOf_PressPhoto3.jpeg

2015 in summation: a festival, a space, never having worked harder, never having felt lonelier, and never having felt more support and love from friends and family. Empress Of’s “Standard” was the crucial jam. Her album, Me, was the need. Malportado Kids were the crucial band. Jonathan Richman was the truth. There’s so much more and too much. But here’s what I have, for myself:
