Contributor Limelight: Genevieve Smith
If you’ve popped by the SLUG office lately, you may have noticed a new face around these parts—Junior Editor Genevieve Smith’s! We caught on to Smith’s genius when she began as the Data Analyst Coordinator for our sister organization, Craft Lake City, in 2013. She got her degree in Economics from the U this past spring, and we knew that her profuse knowledge of music would make her a perfect fit to be SLUG’s Junior Editor. Her penchant for D-beat/crust music is apparent by the patches on her clothes, but don’t let them fool you, as she’s got a handle on American roots music, too, among many other genres. If you haven’t seen her riding around town on her bike with her cello strapped to her back, then you’ve likely seen her play that thing in one of her many bands—Wing And Claw, Moon Of Delirium, in The Dirty Thirty with Vincent Draper and Charles Ellsworth, and, soon, with SLUG Managing Editor Alexander Ortega. Be sure to catch Smith’s feature on Bastard Feast on page 12, and watch her play in The Dirty Thirty every Monday at Copper Common!
