Meet the Mayor: Lansdowne Street

Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in their natural habitats.

Lansdowne Street
Heather Martin

So you're an accountant at the House of Blues. What have been your best and worst experiences here on Lansdowne?

I'll start with worst. I saw a fight: two yah-bros going at it, with backwards hats and everything. One punched the other into the street, and a car came. Didn't hit him. Everything's fine, everything's great, but just considering people could be that angry. . . . In this area, there's a higher concentration of drunken jockocracy, which can lead to getting hit by a car.

How ‘bout your best experience?

My first concert at House of Blues, before I worked there, was Hole. Courtney Love's ridiculousness set a tone that made me want to work where I work. She pulled her dress up and showed everybody her designer underwear.

Your all-time favorite tourist encountered?
The ones with elastic waistband jean shorts and hip packs stopping to take a picture of Fenway Park. That's kind of every day.
