Roll Call: Jessica Tonder

" width=

For today's Roll Call, we call out Jessica Tonder, whose new album The Robot and the Little Girl, debuts this month.

Who are you?

Jessica Tonder and many things, but mostly my dreams, my family, my adventures, my fortunes, my misfortunes, my flaws, my heart....

Describe yourself in three words.

Today? Emotional, bewildered, and belligerent. Typically: thrifty, nutritious, dashing.

Who — dead or alive — would you most like to meet?

Thomas Edison, Lee Morgan, Ella Fitzgerald

Who would you most like to slap in the face?

Why slap someone? It’s not really in my character. It looks really satisfying and dramatic in movies though ... something to think about.

What song do you wish you had written?

Usually I just appreciate songs instead of wishing I had written them.

Elvis Costello or Elvis Presley?

That’s kind of a tough one. Elvis Costello had the Attractions. Elvis Presley was pretty, attractive; he had moves.

LP, CD or MP3?

All the same, as long as they play music. We need all of it.

If you could start one trend, what would it be?


If you could end one trend, what would it be?


With whom would you most like to play a game of spin the bottle?

Thom Yorke

Jessica Tonder plays with Alla, and Like Trains and Taxis. $8 advance. $10 door. 7 p.m. Mon., Jan. 19. Smith’s Olde Bar, 1578 Piedmont Ave.  404-875-1522.
