Earlier in this century, Stacie was a DIY promoter in Boston, earning the Boston Phoenix's "Best DIY Promoter" award in their readers' poll two years in a row. She once paid the Arcade Fire for a gig with a watermelon.

Stacie can recite long poems from memory, cares more about shoes than she probably should, and loves hanging out in the middle of nowhere in Delaware County, NY.
