Birthday at the Bar Mixtape, Kathleen Rooney & Elisa Gabbert

Artifice Magazine has two birthdays per year, one for each of the founding editors (we are a pisces and a scorpio, in case you’re wondering).

In celebration of Artifice’s biannual birthday, and Artifice 1 contributor Kathleen Rooney’s annual one, we present a mixtape by co-Issue 1-contributors Kathleen Rooney and Elisa Gabbert.


…plus a delicious Lego cake.

In keeping with our poem from Artifice 1, “The One About Violence,” we present a playlist of bar songs:

“Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before” by the Smiths

“I Was Dancing in the Lesbian Bar” by Johnathan Richman

“Lived in Bars” by Cat Power

“When I Was Drinking” by Hem 

“Dear Chicago” by Ryan Adams

“Portland, Oregon” by Jack White and Loretta Lynn

“Don’t You Want Me Baby” by Human League

“The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get” by Morrissey

“Drunk Girls” by LCD Soundsystem

“Between the Bars” by Elliott Smith

“One for My Baby (and One More for the Road)” by Billie Holliday

“Clean Getaway” by Maria Taylor

“Grounds for Divorce” by Elbow

“Outside This Bar” by American Music Club

“Polyester Bride” by Liz Phair
