When Jenna Thornhill, co-vocalist of local punk band Mika Miko, and Cali DeWitt decided to live together in spring 2008, they moved into a one-bedroom rental on the bottom floor of an Echo Park house. With this new home came opportunity. "This was my first time being able to decorate my own place. I had all this stuff that was usually in my bedroom or just piled in my car," Thornhill says. "Now we're just displaying all our little things."
DeWitt, a longtime member of the L.A. music community and owner of the indie record/publishing label Teenage Teardrops, says that in the past, "I didn't like mixing my stuff with my roommates' stuff. I selfishly wanted to keep it to myself."
As the first installment in our series on Southern California music-industry personalities, L.A. at Home takes a peek inside the world of DeWitt and Thornhill, whose band is scheduled to play at Sunset Junction this weekend.
