Grammy nominated alt dance duo SOFI TUKKER took the world by storm this year. While I eagerly wait to see who takes home the dance album trophy on Sunday night (San Francisco’s own Tycho is in the running too!) I’m hoping to make it to SOFI TUKKER’s long sold out show at the Independent in San Francisco tonight. The buzz surrounding the show is just mind blowing, and having caught Sophie and Tucker plenty of times before both in San Francisco and Austin, I predict their performance to more than live up to the hype. San Francisco, prepare for a dance party, a mighty fine one, at that. In the meantime, rev yourselves up with this unexpected but oh so sumptuous remix of Local Natives’ Dark Days by the LA based pair. They give the song a bounteous injection of vigorous bouncing Latin spice. I can bet on it you’ve never heard, or danced to, Local Natives quite this way. Alternatively, you can stream the edit on Soundcloud below.
your past relationship teach you:
I’ve actually never been in a relationship before, despite the fact that I turn
19 in less than a month. I’ve never been on a date, nothing. The reasons for
this include but are not limited to the following, I have actual diagnosed
social anxiety, I have never met anyone I was interested in, no one has
expressed interest in me, I spent most of my high school time in hospital in
and outpatient programs.
or spiritual: Religious. I’m a fairly liberal
Christian. My dad teaches religion, logic, philosophy at universities so I’m
pretty well versed in a few belief systems.
color: I like any shade of blue
hours of sleep: Depends, I’m an insomniac so it varies.
character: Fuck man… this is hard. I have a
lot but at the moment the one that sticks out is 100% Jasper from Steven
blankets do you sleep with: Two. My
duvet and my baby blanket :)
Dream job: Storyboard artist or author maybe an animator.
games, table top, or video games:
Video games obvs. But I do love a good game of CLUE.
have any OCs: As stated above, I have plenty of
OCs over on my fankid blog.
you wish was canon in fiction/fandom:
I MISS JASPER AND I WANT HER BACK ON THE SHOW
thing to draw/write/think about:
When it comes to writing I don’t gravitate to any particular genre and I’ve
written a lot of different types. I like to write complex and imperfect characters
though, so long as I’m writing good characters I enjoy writing any genre. As
for art I’ve always been partial to cartooning but every once in a while I’ll
whip out the ole charcoal and do a still life or something.
strangest song you like: My music
tastes are all over the place… I think a really weird and interesting song that
I suppose could be considered strange is Bathtub Mermaid by Mili
