Meet Jacob, 24 years old from St. Louis, MO
“I made the playlist during spring break of my senior year of undergrad. I was in a confusing position: I wanted to have fun my last few months with my friends and be hopeful about life after graduation, but at the same time didn't want to leave, was starting to question my post-graduation life plan, and was pretty terrified about everything that was coming next. I created "im a rebel just for kicks" so I could have a soundtrack to that ambivalence.”
What is the soundtrack to your life?
Probably the last two AJR albums
This is a very weird answer but I'm gonna go with three very different artists: Ra Ra Riot, Portugal. the Man, and Chiddy Bang.
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be? (Dead or alive)
What is the best concert you have ever been to?
Either Vampire Weekend (I saw them in St. Louis the night the Blues won the Stanley Cup which was wild) or The Lonely Island.
Do you have a favorite quote?
"In nonsense is strength" - Vonnegut
What is the most annoying song in the world?
"Closer" by The Chainsmokers. Some of my friends would sing a version of it where every word in the song got changed to "boulder," and I've never been able to unhear that.
