I got a taste of punk rock when I was a weird, awkward 9th grader and stumbled upon a Fat Wreck Chords compilation in a discount bin at a local record store. I remember taking it home and listening to it for the first time. The music on that CD jumped out, punched me in the face, and changed me forever. Suddenly, the world made sense. I can honestly say that punk rock saved my life and gave me purpose.
Over the next 20 years, music was my constant partner as I grew into an equally weird adult. Though I’m technically a grown up now, the teenager in me never outgrew her love of live shows and I still go as often as I possibly can. Music will forever be my happy place and I’m so excited to share my experiences with like minded people.
