Tell us a little bit about yourself

I’m 17, from South Florida. I’m in London through an internship which placed me at Songkick for the month of July. I hope to one day be living in London and working in music business.

What’s your role at Songkick?

Data intern

What was the first concert you went to (that you’re not embarrassed to share..)

My first legit concert was Secondhand Serenade. The tickets were a present from my friend for my birthday. They played at this little venue in Fort Lauderdale called the Culture Room. After the show, John came out, completely drunk, and he put his arms around my friend and I. He signed my jeans and he and his set players signed the toe of my converse and a poster.

Any particularly awesome/interesting concert memories/stories to tell?

My best concert memory is from my sophomore year in high school. My friend Lauren and I are slightly obsessed with John Mayer and we got tickets to his show at the Bank Atlantic Center February of 2010. It was my first time seeing him live so we made shirts and a poster that said “John will you be my valentine?” (the concert was February 4th). We were like 5 rows back from the stage. We held up the sign after every song, and he never acknowledged it. We were pretty bummed until after “Gravity” he said goodbye and at the very end he said “and yes I’l be your valentine” – we died.

What upcoming concerts/festivals are you looking forward to – any recommendations?

Adele is coming to Miami in October and I really want to go, but I’m not sure if I can afford the tickets. My dream is for Mumford and Sons to come to South Florida, or the Kooks!


Lily Siwak

Tell us a little bit about yourself

I’m from St. Louis, Missouri and in London for the month of July with an internship program.

What’s your role at Songkick?

Data intern.

What was the first concert you went to (that you’re not embarrassed to share..)

The first concert I ever went to was an ‘N Sync concert when I was 7 or 8, and I’m not ashamed to say that I still listen to them when I’m feeling nostalgic.

Any particularly awesome/interesting concert memories/stories to tell?

This past spring I was in Aspen, CO with my brother and we were walking to get coffee one night and we saw Vampire Weekend setting up their equipment just on the street corner, and we stayed and got to watch them play a 45 minute set outside of a coffee shop less than five feet away.

What upcoming concerts/festivals are you looking forward to – any recommendations?

Arctic Monkeys is coming to St. Louis in October and I’ll be getting my tickets the second they go on sale. I’d kill to see Eminem and Skrillex perform, but I think it’ll be a while before I get that opportunity, seeing as no one really ever comes to the Midwest.

Thanks guys!
