Hey, everyone! There's a new sheriff in town, and her name is Emily Nokes. Here's the back of her head:

Deal with it.
  • Deal with it.

She's previously written for The Stranger about how to go on tour without killing your bandmates, about her obsession with weird rock bios (like Dave Mustaine's!), and about Sasquatch this year. Emily has a degree in graphic design from the Art Institute of Seattle, so expect the music section to get a little more graphic. Before working for The Stranger, Emily was a designer/illustrator at Wexley School for Girls and then was the art director at Icanhascheezburger, where she learned how to be a big scary boss and spell things wrong.

She's also the singer in some band. Her email is here. Let the shit-talking begin!
