What’s on the Headphones

By Molly Segers @funnyhairpin


Ticket Alternative is probably more than a little bit more musical than the average office. There are a handful of current and recovering musicians, and band t-shirts seem to be seemingly everyone’s wardrobe staple. Someone is usually gushing about a new record or bringing in a stack of beloved bootlegs and rarities to share with a like minded listener.

Then there’s the satellite radios scattered around the office. The CSRs frequently indulge in some 90’s one hit wonders or memorizing every word of “Call Me Maybe” between calls and XMU sets the scene while Hilllery is knee deep in accounting. The printing room is better known as Club TATP thanks to the afternoon dance party sing-alongs that accompany daily order packing. As for we client support managers, headphones are practically mandatory for us. TA even gifted us with shiny new noise reducing headphones to help up get our work done. While this means that we get to listen to as much cheesetastic pop as we want (ok, maybe that’s just me) without getting any heat from out highly opinionated coworkers, we miss out on some of the fun of sharing.

So without further ado, here is a sampling of what’s on our headphones while we’re getting all of those shows on sale.
