Seeing a band or performer who you really like play live for the first time is such a delicate situation. Let's say that you've been listening to a certain album non-stop for months, are madly in love with it, and then you go see the songs performed live and they just majorly stink up the place.

Kid Sister (AKA Melisa Young) is really fun to talk to on the phone. For the first five minutes of our conversation she asked me questions about where I was from, having called me out on my Midwestern accent. Born and raised in suburban Illinois herself, Melisa credits the drought of suburban entertainment options for the creativity that grew from it. When there's nowhere to go but the yarn barn and the local Walmart, might as well start banging some pots and pans ... Read More
