My self-summary
Hey! My name is Alex! I'm new to SF and looking to meet new people, to go out with and have as much fun as is humanly possible! I am a musician by trade and am also looking for singer/songwriters interested in collaboration!

update 10/21/2013 - I stink at this online dating thing so I'm mainly leaving this up to look for musicians for collaboration and joining my new band. That being said if ya wanna grab a drink I'm always down! cheers!
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated from college last year and moved to SF a little over four months ago. I am working in IT for a really cool company right now and have started up a new band. I'm a guitarist, bassist, ukuleleist (basically anything fretted), keyboardist, singer, and songwriter (I consider songwriting to be my primary instrument). As of now my band is just me and a drummer so I'm looking for a whole slew of new members (guitar/bassists, keyboardists, and female and male singers) as I generally like to have a five piece band... I am also actively producing an album I wrote and recorded with my college band the DOTS.
Other than that I'm just trying to have as much fun as possible with my life. To achieve this goal I'm going out dancing, seeing shows, and exploring this awesome city as often as I can and looking for people to join me and my shenanigans.
I’m really good at
A whole slew of different things! Most of which involve music in some form. Although you should see me dance!
The first things people usually notice about me
Definitely my smile: my gargantuan, goofy-ass, giggly, sweet smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Just started MaddAddam, the third book in Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake series! On the whole I love fiction - there's nothing like reading a good story. I am of course open to almost anything as long as it's well written, non-fiction included. Marquez and Calvino are some of my favorites but I do love a good dystopia every now and then.

My taste in music is insanely broad. I know that saying you like everything conveys no information but it's true for me - there is stuff I like in almost every genre ever made and I'm always open to new sounds and new music. My own writing is usually for ensembles of male/female vox with tight harmonies, guitar (electric and acoustic), bass, drums, and fun keys/synth parts. The bands I've been digging most recently are Mother Mother and the Kopecky Family Band. I love to talk music and hear new stuff so that's really the best way to figure out my tastes.

I love Wes Anderson movies and am also trying catch up on all of the classics that I've missed out on. Don't always have enough time to watch a movie but I love a good movie night every now and again.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out at a show, either as a spectator or a performer! I love live music and the scene out here in SF is amazing. I'm having a blast hearing all this new music and haven't seen a bad show yet.
You should message me if
You think I'm cute and you love yourself. Also definitely message me if you're at all creative, regardless of whether or not you're looking to date; I love collaborating and creating new projects in all mediums. more than anything I'm looking for people that inspire me and whom I inspire.
Or hit me up if you just wanna grab a drink and get to know me! I'm always down!
