Kristin Gallegos x So It Goes: Alix Brown

Alix Brown, (@alix_brown) with signature blunt bangs and cat eye makeup in a classic 60s style, is one of those people who has a certain air of familiarity about her. The native Georgian is a music industry veteran, having run Shattered Records with Jay Reatard in Memphis before moving to New York City where she worked at Academy Records in Brooklyn and played bass for Golden Triangles. These days, she's involved in music in a different way - she's frequently found DJing at some of New York's coolest spots (Soho Grand, TriBeCa Grand, Paul's Baby Grand...) and recently got married to Lias Saoudi of Fat White Family, one of London's current buzz-bands.
