Name: Jake Webb
Hometown: Rogers, Arkansas
Time in Lawrence: About a couple weeks, I'm thinking about moving here.
What were you doing when scouted: Making friends at Henry's.
Favorite places: Henry's, The Jackpot, The Casbah Market, and in front of the Antique Mall where I play my guitar.
How would you describe your style? I take inspiration from my surroundings.
Where do you get your hair cut? I usually let my friends cut my hair.
Favorite trends? I like rocking the fedora, I'm a fan of boots....cowboy boots in particular. I like Western shirts and flannel.
Least favorite trends? I really hate furry boots on girls and overly poofy shirts.
Tattoos/piercings? I have a Stellar's Jay Bird tattooed on my thigh...it's something that's kind of a symbol for my music.
Favorite coffee shop? I really like Henry's, because the coffee is cheaper than at other coffee shops. It's also a nice place to meet people and have good conversation, and Alicia is a good barista.
Favorite bar? So far, I like the Jackpot the best. I went there once when they showed a really funny movie, and the bartender that was working was hilarious. I seem to laugh a lot there.
What would you like to see more of in Lawrence? I haven't been here for very long, but I would like to see more festivals, and more art festivals in paricular.
What would you like to see less of? I'd like to see less bike/walker conflict with cars. I almost got ran over earlier today.
Who are your fashion influences? I don't really have any fashion influences, but my musical influences are John Vanderslice and Colin Meloy.
People say I look like: I get Jack Black occasionally, and once someone said I looked like the lead singer of mewithoutyou (a band)
Tell us a secret: I currently live in the office of a dog food factory.
