From her Wikipedia entry:
Liz Armstrong lives in Chicago, Illinois. She has performed solo and with the bands To Live and Shave in L.A. and To Live and Shave in L.A. 2 under the stage name “Misty Martinez.” Since 2004, she has written first-person party journalism for the Chicago Reader in her “Chicago Antisocial” column.

But that doesn’t begin to cover our knife wielding interview. Liz is the first guest to show up “heavy” to an interview. She was none-the-less delightful and wacky to talk to. Amanda and Liz have a battle royalle and end up pals! This interview is a non-stop action fest loaded withconfessional jaw dropping moments. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, it will become a part of you. You’ll listen again and again. It’s downright worthy of Chicago Anti-Social.
