Name: Seth Wiese
Sign: I'm usually closer to a dead-end sign.
Hometown: Davenport, Iowa
Time in Lawrence: 5 years
What were you doing when scouted? I was discussing logo and layout design for the Baby Boo 7" split with my Lovely Sea business partner.
How would you describe your style? Band t-shirts and jeans. That's what I wear every day, and I have over 80 band t-shirts.
Where do you get your hair cut? Hannah Hyde cuts it, or sometimes I go to Malcolm at Amyx's.
Favorite trends? I would say my favorite fashion trend is Aaron Strelow. He has got class. Also, whatever his wife Rachel is wearing, because she always looks stylish.
Least favorite trends? Girls who put on makeup and leave the house wearing their pajamas.
Tattoos/piercings? I have three tattoos on my right arm. They're for my family, my music, and my God. They were done at Big Daddy Cadillacs; two of them by Carlos and one was done by Carrie.
Favorite coffee shop? I like going to Aimee's for the food and to hang out, and The Pig is good for getting a lot done because it's brighter.
Favorite bar? I like The Replay and the Taproom the best. Good people, good times.
What would you like to see more of in Lawrence? I would like to see a fire escape on the corner of 8th and New Hampshire St.
What would you like to see less of in Lawrence? Art thieves and high-class hotels in the place of sandwich shops.
