The Weeknd, I’m a fan.

I spent a really long time trying to figure out what all the hype was around the Weeknd. I had a small gig selling merch for this guy back in September and he completely go the royal treatment. For a single shirt he wanted $40. Not many people who’ve only performed three times can pull that off. I think I sold ten or twelve, just remarkable!

The gateway tunes for me were “The Party & The After Party” and “Loft Music.” Two tunes that are based on Beach House tunes. At first I was offended that he sampled them, but they sound terrific. Shhh…! Don’t tell anyone I like this band…
