Michelle Edwards, What Are You Listening To?
The local improviser performs with Dangerville at 7 Minutes in Love on Saturday, February 12 at Space 55 at 9 p.m., immediately followed by Dangerville in the Cagematch improv competition, also at Space 55.
When you put your key in the ignition and turn on the radio, what station would play right now? I don't drive, and I don't listen to the radio in my home. When I am in a car, I will usually turn it to 100.7-FM. That is the station I grew up listening to. My mom introduced me to good music as a kid.
What's the last song played on your portal music player? "Underdog," by Sly and the Family Stone. I listen to this song frequently -- it just makes me happy. I have very strong sense memories to music. This was the song that played right after I first kissed my husband...on a mountain at sunrise.
What's the first record you bought? Nirvana's Nevermind. I was 9.
What's the first concert you saw? Ringo Starr. I was 12 and went with my best friend and her dad. That was the first time I made a connection to watching people smoke stuff and the smell that came from my mom's bathroom. That may be a big reason as to why my mom liked such good music.
What is your favorite local venue to see music? The Trunk Space will always be my favorite music venue. In an era of seeing so many small venues try and fail, it's nice to have The Trunk Space still going strong. Even though the summers are miserable inside, being covered in other people's sweat is part of the music experience I cherish.
What is your favorite music video? My husband keeps watching Lady GaGa's "Bad Romance," like over and over. I have to say, it's grown on me. I also really like the Fiona Apple video starring Zack Galifianakis ("Not About Love")--it's just so out of place.
