Beesley-Brown is the owner/operator of The Royale Mesa's newest independently owned microcinema. I've also done shows in the Valley for the past 5 years under the moniker of the Midnite Movie Mamacita.
When you put your key in the ignition and turn on the radio, what station would play right now? If I'm not listening to my iPod, it would be NPR, or if it's late at night, Coast to Coast AM. I heart George Noory and all the kooks that call in -- it is endlessly entertaining. I mostly have the iPod on shuffle. Right now it's on my electronic playlist with Justice, Nero, deadmau5 and Daft Punk.
What's the first album you bought? Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.
What's the first concert you saw? It was either Bryan Adams, Meatloaf or the Village People? How random! I wish I could remember. They were all with my dad and totally awesome memories, especially the Village People, my first exposure to a mass crowd of men in chaps!
What's your favorite concert you've ever been to? I would have to say deadmau5 last month -- epic light show and just a totally fun night. Danced my ass off for 5 hours, seriously fun!
What's the last song played on your music player? "Ready to Uff," by Uffie.
Preferred format: CD, vinyl, cassette, 8-Track or digital? Vinyl or digital, for sure. I love exotica music and have a pretty decent vinyl exotica collection and some rare soundtracks, too. I'm a sucker for obscure soundtracks on vinyl like Emmanuelle, Record City or American Fever.
What was your favorite new or new-to-you album from 2010? 4x4=12, by deadmau5.
