Religion aside, Jenn can’t help but subscribe to the above Vonnegut quote. Always an integral part of her life, some might say music is her raison d’être. Jenn made the move to DC after an exhilarating but exhausting four years of living in NYC—and while she’s been called “too edgy” for the District, she finds that the live music scene makes it tenable. Some of her favorite things include synthpop, steel drums, and capturing musical moments on instagram.
Born in Colombia, the now Baltimore-based bioengineer is an avid music enthusiast.

Jon—grad student of GW and current resident of NY—originally hails from Ontario, Canada, hence his affinity for ketchup chips. He also plays guitar and violin in his spare time, and has a voracious appetite for new music. Fun fact: his dad was a real-life poet!
