“It seems mystical to many people but I actually find it quite logical.”
Sydney Jones kicks nards and spits for the band Separate Spines. What does that entail?
“Stomping around. Singing and dancing. Screaming as loud as you can because no one can hear you anyways,” she says. Jones, this month’s curator of What I’m Listening To, joined the band after seeing them perform at the Colonial.
“Performing with the Spines has been an incredible channel of release and empowerment for me. I feel the freedom to be forthright and ridiculous in equal measure.”
In addition to singing, Jones has practiced palmistry since she was a kid.
“It’s fascinating to me that people’s idiosyncrasies affect the way that they carry their body, which is manifested in what they do with their hands. It seems mystical to many people but I actually find it quite logical.” Jones made use of her palmistry and singing skills at this month’s TUBE. hosted Crocker Art Mix.
