Molly Lewis: Live
If college is about preparing yourself for a lifelong, satisfying career, Molly Lewis did college right — though, to the chagrin of her professors, most of her education took place outside the university campus.
She "job-shadowed with industry professionals" like Jonathan Coulton, Paul and Storm, and Marian Call; she did a few "unpaid internships" at W00tstock and conventions; she attended "industry nights" like Dragon*Con and PAX.
But a board of advisors at her university disagreed, telling her that though her extracurricular musical pursuits were interesting, they were "a distraction" from her "real responsibility" of being a full-time student.
On June 22nd 2012, Molly walked out of her last university class ever, thereby completing her degree requirements and graduating. A few days later, with the help of Dammit Liz, she put on a sold out concert at The Triple Door in Seattle. Suck on THAT, board of advisors.
This is the live album of that show.
