Sarah A. DJ Profile

A Pennsylvania native living in Chicago since 2006, Sarah has a lot of ~feelings~ about music, and Chicago, and music in Chicago, that she feels the need to share with the masses.  While her main hobbies include trawling the internet for new and interesting things, wasting time on Tumblr, and buying cute things on Etsy, she blogs in various places about books and music, and also sings with Jungle of Cities, a folk-rock/Americana inspired band. Sarah has also previously performed with several local ensembles, including the Chicago Licorice Sticks, Lakeside Pride symphonic band and saxophone ensemble, and the DePaul Community Chorus.  She enjoys dystopian fiction, stories about zombies, peanut butter, and being chased by her cats.
