Scenesters share their New Year's resolutions

By Peter Holslin

What are their hopes and dreams for 2013?

I asked some musicians, label heads and club owners what their resolutions are for 2013. Here's what they said:

Rafael Reyes, VAMPIRE / Nite Ritual: "To be more forgiving and loving of myself, surrendering to what the future holds, 'cause I know it's full of love."

Sean Cute, The Ruby Room: "To keep smoking and to buy more jungle records on vinyl."

Lety Beers, Schitzophonics: "To invest some band funds into finishing up our new record in the spring, making schwag and exploring outside of town. We've been talking about this damn new record for too long. No more talk, just action!"

Lety McKenzie, Ship Records: "To be a better person. I'm content with myself, but that doesn't mean I'm a good/bad person. I'm not exactly selfish but not completely giving. If I can make one person smile on a daily basis, that's enough to make me feel like a better human being."

Scott Wilson: "To get a couple of albums finished that I've been recording this year by 2013. I'm closer on one than the other, but they're both pretty close. And I'm hoping that neither of them come true, either."

Josh Damigo: "More alcohol, less coffee."
