Season 1: Monique Doron

In the first of 2 interviews from the Audiotree studios in Chicago, I met (for the first time besides BLED FEST for like a second, which doesn't count) Riot Fest graphic designer and Support Your Fellow Rockers founder Monique Doron. From their beginnings in the music scene sitting on a washing machine at metal basement shows to being a part of one of the biggest punk rock festivals in America, Mo's a relentlessly positive force in DIY music. Also, we discuss how no one should ever, ever eat untoasted bagels.
