DJ, musician, stylist and fashion muse Alix Brown was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia by music-loving parents. After a 4-year stint playing in a band, touring the world and running Shattered Records with Jay Reatard in Memphis, Tennessee, Alix decided to make the move to NYC. She immediately got a job at Academy Records in Brooklyn and began to play bass in Golden Triangle. The band gained great success, winning Battle of the Bands at SXSW, which led to being signed by the Sub Pop subsidiary, Hardly Art, and the band landing a song in an international BMW commercial. Just like many bands on top of the world, however, they soon dissolved. Having worked in vintage clothing and record stores growing up, Alix realized she had amassed thousands of records, a vast digital music library, and quite the jaw-dropping wardrobe. With such an impressive arsenal of pop culture artifacts, she began to pursue her career as a DJ and a stylist. Since then, she has landed increasingly more high profile DJ gigs at Don Hills, Kenmare, Paul’s Baby Grand, The Standard Hotel NYC, weekly parties with co-DJ Tennessee Thomas at Soho Grand, TriBeCa Grand, Hotel Chantelle; and parties for the likes of Jill Stuart, Ralph Lauren, Helmut Lang, Pamela Love, and many more.
Jimmy Michael Giorsetti (born July 7, 1956 in Phoenix, Arizona), also known by the moniker Don Bolles, is an American drummer who was involved in the 1970s and 1980s punk scene in Los Angeles, California, performing with Germs, Nervous Gender, 45 Grave and Celebrity Skin. Prior to relocating to LA in February 1978, Bolles had played in several Phoenix punk bands, including Heavy Metal Frogs, Krazy Homicide, Liars and the Exterminators.
He took his stage name from Arizona journalist Don Bolles, who was killed by a car bomb in 1976 while investigating a land fraud case with connections to the Mafia.
Concurrent with his performing with Celebrity Skin, Bolles was a DJ for the short-lived radio station Mars FM. He has continued to DJ and produce events throughout L.A., as well as work with other musicians, most recently, recording and touring with Ariel Pink.
Bolles co-authored the 2002 book Lexicon Devil: The Fast Times and Short Life of Darby Crash and the Germs.
