As I Said to Billy Corgan – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans
Nick Pejic is a psychiatrist.
Nick spends his days treating people with varying issues, including depression and addiction. By the end of the day he’s ready to let loose. That’s when he gets out the guitar and gets wailing like Billy Corgan from Smashing Pumpkins. Billy is Nick’s musical idol and he’s met Billy three times. Each time was a little different, but each interaction was pretty successful and Billy seemed to like talking to Nick. That’s not how it went down with Nick’s other musical hero, Harry Connick Jr, when Nick ran into him in the Quarter.
Today is the first time in her life that anybody called Jaime Glas a fashion designer. Despite the fact that Jaime is actually a fashion designer. She started out as an engineer on oil rigs but soon came to discover that the fire retardant clothing she was forced to wear was all designed for men. It didn’t only look terrible, it was so baggy and badly cut for her body-shape that it was downright dangerous. And so Jaime’s line of fire retardant clothing for women was born. It’s called Haute Work.
Johanna Divine is one of the hippest singer-songwriters you’ll ever hear. Johanna is so hip she doesn’t even try to make it in the music biz. Though she’s had record deals and released records – which you can find on Spotify and everywhere else music is streamed or stolen – Johanna is happy to pursue her other interests in lieu of the self-promotion and hustling it takes to make it as a musician. But wait till you wear what she sounds like. Laid back, languid, smart, funny, a great guitar player with a sensuous, seductive voice. If you don’t know Johanna’s work, listen to this, you’re going to love her as much as we do.
