Name: Zach Jones
Relationship status: I have a girlfriend.
Hometown: Brooklyn, N.Y.
Time in Lawrence: Just since this morning.
Occupation: Musician — I play drums with A Great Big World.
Style Scout: Chris Kuffner of A Great Big World
Dream job: I’m doing it.
What were you doing when scouted? Walking to Chipotle to get dinner, which is so lame to say — we should say a cool Lawrence place. We did have breakfast at The Roost. That was really good.
Describe your style: Rock ‘n’ roll. I’m a mod and a rocker.
Fashion trends you love: Denim on denim — Canadian tuxedo. I like that Doc Martens are officially a thing again. They’re never out of style, but they’re in it right now.
Fashion trends you hate: I’m trying to think of something that really bothers me and I can’t. I don’t have a good answer for this.
Fashion influences: Ryan Adams, The (Rolling) Stones, The Beatles, Buddy Holly — all rock ‘n’ roll guys.
What are your favorite and least favorite things about Lawrence? My least favorite thing about Lawrence is that I missed the showing of “The Muppet Movie” last night at the (Liberty Hall) theatre. My favorite thing about Lawrence is there’s a lot of great stuff to do and it’s a beautiful day. Everybody’s very kind, and it’s a beautiful venue, (Liberty Hall).
Tattoos or piercings: Five tattoos, no piercings.
What’s your spirit animal? Kermit the Frog because he’s kind and he likes to entertain people. And he hangs out with a lot of weirdos. And he’s kind of a weirdo himself.
Whom do people say you look like? People used to say I looked like Harry Potter before I dyed my hair blonde, and then once I dyed my hair blonde people said I looked like Draco Malfoy. Now I’m the bad guy.
Tell us a secret: I have a secret band that people should listen to: Big Star, from Memphis, Tenn.
