Jimmy is a jolly, portly fellow with a taste for frozen, girly drinks and thai food. He is greatly loved by his peers, mostly because he gives them soup… and he makes a mean soup. Any kind of soup, broth, stew, porridge, bisque or chowder…you name it. He and his buddy Scott decided to start Do512 after a few drinks back in 2006, and that’s where the magic began. And whatnot.Do512: do512.com/sweettxjimmy Twitter: twitter.com/do512_
Lawrence is the Editor of Do512. He was the first official employee, which means he’s been writing, promoting, and partying with Do512 since 2007. He also runs Covert Curiosity, one of the oldest music blogs in town. He created it way back in 2006 after seeing Ghostland Observatory and White Denim play a show together at Trophy’s, and wondered why no one was there. Lawrence enjoys cold beer, hot women, fast cars, football and fashion. He’s huge on fashion.Do512: do512.com/
Jamie Jett totally digs camping, riding four-wheelers and drinking delicious beer while making new friends. She doesn’t like anything, but she loves everything, especially writing for the do512blog. She can cook a beast of a meal that is both delicious and high in nutrients. Her list of habits and vices is a long one that includes cigarettes, booze, caffeine, and geeking out online looking at other people’s awesomeness and getting insanely jealous. Her 7-year-old son thinks she laughs too much and that she’s weird, but he is 6 and lacks logic: “My mama, like, she hates the color pink and that’s weird cuz she’s a girl…that’s weird,” See? What kind of a basis is that? She mostly does awesome stuff and things for Do512Family.Do512: do512.com/do512jamie Twitter: twitter.com/do512_Jamie Blog: do512family.com/
Neda manages operations at Do512. She aspires to one day have as much money as she does mileage on her car. One day she did finally graduate from college, but unfortunately has yet to graduate from the little kid’s table at Thanksgiving. She tries to balance a rock n roll life with a 9-5, but her bedtime is 10:30 so the “rock n roll” part is mostly delusion. She refuses to do anything until she’s made an accompanying playlist, and she keeps forgetting to pay off speeding tickets. That might blow up in her face later. She makes art sometimes.Do512: do512.com/do512neda Twitter: twitter.com/do512_Neda
Matt Bradshaw (Do512′s Brand Manager) was born on the internet. He quickly learned the ways of the world through is education at Wikipedia University. He left his facebook family and friends to work in the great Do512 mines, digging for precious upcoming events to tell people about. You’ll find him at any of the Soul Dance parties in town, including the ones he DJ’s under the moniker Stereo Stepdad.Do512: do512.com/Do512Matt Twitter: twitter.com/do512_
Courtney Goforth (Content Manager) can normally be found professionally Instagramming live music or crushing some Mexican food around town. She relies on her record player and her annoyingly cute puppy, Brisket, to pull her out of a sour mood usually caused by Austin traffic. She is happiest in warm weather with a cold beer in hand. She hopes people are not deterred by her excessive collection of owl figures or the fact she thinks all old people are adorable. Take her to see a good band and you can do no wrong.Do512: Do512.com/Do512CourtneyG Twitter: twitter.com/CourtneyGoforth
LoCoco is someone you are sure to catch singing karaoke downtown to Prince, sipping on an IPA at happy hour, pleasantly beating the crap out of his guitar with his band Transit Method, cuttin’ a rug at the many live concerts around town, or headbanging to a Rush record, of which he has every one ever released. Being the Jersey boy that he is, he enjoys home cooked Italian meals. And wine. Only red (white is sacrilege). He is also big on the outdoors, barbecues, haunted houses, roller coasters, slasher films, and a solid game of bocce ball. Bring it.Do512: do512.com/Do512LoCoco Twitter: twitter.com/lococomj Favorite website: blabbermouth.net
Thoroughly enjoying live music, queso and sarcasm, Krista’s an Austin transplant who refuses to leave the city alone. She finds any and every excuse to attend a festival and stay out late. Want to find her at a show? Just look for Pocahontas hair being whipped back and forth- she whips it good. Krista’s got a group of wild friends who she calls family that are a terrible influence on her, so when you inevitably see her acting like a fool, it’s not her fault. Always remember that.
Rory Jones is a guy that likes writing, and he does that for Do512. His favorite song is “Don’t Worry Baby” by The Beach Boys. He has expressed strong interest in writing a 1200 page novelization of the movie Joe Dirt, though there has been no publisher interest in such a project. He is the only person in Austin without a tattoo. He loves you very much and he’s going to change for you, baby. Just give him one more chance.
Ashley can be found sauntering around New York City enjoying the overabundance of music venues. She has red hair as fiery as her passion for good music, enjoys a classy drink of Bailey’s on the rocks and knows that it’s as embarrassing as it sounds, and consistently talks of her glory days as a native of Austin. When she’s not at concerts or over-sending music emails to friends, she can be found blogging her thoughts on bands and festivals on Do512.
