Intern Update #1

Hey everyone! Claire and Sara here, new interns at Glassnote. It's officially our one-month anniversary at Glassnote and we thought it was the perfect time to commemorate with a blog post. It's been just long enough for the four of us (including intern #3/photoshop-wiz Hannah and intern #4/paper-jam extraordinaire/token male, Drew) to learn the ropes and settle in. We were quickly initiated and have been able to each focus on the departments of interest to us. There has been so much to learn from already as the new GIVERS video for "Up Up Up" was released, tours have been put into motion for Two Door Cinema Club, Royal Bangs, and GIVERS, and a number of publications from Rolling Stone to Billboard have featured Glassnote artists.

We've already had some surprise guests here in the office (did you see our twitter picture of Winston from Mumford & Sons? He catches on quick), and had an office trip to hang out at Village Voice’s 4Knots Music Festival, it was so much fun! Music-related things aside, another really awesome part about working at Glassnote is our location....right next to Sprinkles. They're pretty delicious but we've heard nothing compares to our very own Jenna's infamous cupcakes!

We’re looking forward to seeing a few of our bands live as they come through New York in the next few months. Two Door Cinema Club will be at Terminal 5 on September 15, and then GIVERS and Royal Bangs in October! It will be interesting to experience what goes on in the office at Glassnote during those busy times, and we're excited to welcome the bands here at home-base.

Keep checking back to read our updates over the next five months! We'll be talking about our favorite GN moments and unofficial “Life as a New Yorker” experiences, and once a month letting you in on events we're looking forward to. Check out August:
