Shimer College

I have a friend from college who saw Cake before they were all that well known. I believe she was still in high school at the time. She remembers this particularly vividly because her boyfriend, who was dancing up near the stage, was told by a member of the bank that his hair smelled good. Also, seven years ago, Cake was one of the things that people were telling each other to listen to. Um. Still instead of Metallica, but, yeah. --Cassie

Don't feel too bad about it. I too lack all taste in music, although I like whatever I'm played; I'm just bad at picking stuff. There aren't a lot of Indigo Girls fans out there.

I listen to obscure things, but I'm also a sucker for some of today's popular music (and I possess a guilty pleasure of the '80s). It did surprise me, however, that Shimerians have such a wide range of musical interests - no doubt reflective of the all-encompassing, far-reaching interests that Shimerians tote.
