Anthony York

Anthony York knows politics. He’s covered the beat for notable online and print publications including, The Stranger and The Believer; and he’s the editor for Capitol Weekly, a local newspaper on California government and politics. As it turns out, York also knows how to shake his moneymaker. “I was sort of thinking about a dance-party playlist for hipsters—to show that you can love guitars, hate Justin Timberlake and still find good, old-fashioned ass-shaking music,” he explained.
