“The song I have on repeat this month is Stand Up by Joshua Henry. I’m a big believer in manifesting positive energy, and this song brings me joy as we look ahead to a brighter new year!” Megan | Box Office Coordinator

“Defying Gravity” from Wicked

“There may hardly be a time I’m NOT listening to ‘Defying Gravity’ on repeat, but I’ve been playing and singing it in the shower extra this month as I prepare to take on a new year.” Taylor | PR/Marketing Specialist

“Residue” by Tayla Parx

“I had never heard of this artist, but she came up in a playlist in 2020 and I haven’t been able to get her out of my head. She’s stuck to me like glue!” Todd | Visual Arts Assistant

“Bang!” by AJR

“2020 was a rough year for me in soooooo many ways. I’m happy to see it go and I’m excited it see what the future holds. I’ll be playin this on repeat all month cuz to quote the song, ‘Been a hell of a ride, but I’m thinking it’s time to go…Come hang. Let’s go out with a bang. Bang! Bang! Bang!’ AND ON TO BETTER DAYS!” Victoria | Ticketing & Brand Dev. Manager

“Good Kisser” by Lake Street Dive

“Bad Self Portraits” by Lake Street Dive

“I love LSD because of the amazing lead singer and every person in the band is amazingly talented, Bridget rocks the bass! They have such a clean, pure sound, no fancy mixing. I saw them once live and they were great live too, probably won’t get that chance again!” Robin | Scheduling Coordinator

“I’m So Happy I Cry” by Fantastic Negrito feat. Tank & the Bangas

“Aren’t you happy to leave 2020 in the dust?  A new year represents the fabled Tabula Rasa to many and sometimes there’s no better palate cleanser than good old-fashioned American gospel.  The organ swells meet hand claps and foot stomps along with a big call & response gospel chorus can take you to your own musical church.  This Fantastic Negrito track features Tank from Tank & The Bangas who you may have seen at New West Fest a few years ago.  Play loudly for best results.” —Jack | Director

“Brazilian Soul” (Acoustic Bossa Version) by The Knocks feat. Sofi Tukker

“My daughter introduced me to it. I like the song and it makes me happy and laugh because it sounds like there is a turkey gobbling in the background.” Liz | Cultural Services Admin

“Figure It Out” by Blu DeTiger

“I chose this song because it is very catchy and lifts my spirits if I’m feeling down. The message of figuring it out is helpful for me when I’m faced with indecision or stress; this song reminds me that everything is ‘figureoutable!'” Cierra | Box Office Associate

“Stars” by Mark Owen

“With the new year, I find I need some help taking a step back and taking a lay of the land. This song always helps, which is why I have it on repeat.” —Alison | Publicity Marketing Coordinator
