This tattoo that Rodriguez has inked on her knee is a sign of her will to always be playful and creative, like children who play tic-tac-toe for hours: "Friends always call my style whimsy and funky," says Rodriguez.

The band Plastic Children is very genre-mixing, Rodriguez says, with everything from trip-hop to jazz to soul-pop to metal, and caters to music fans with a broad palette: "Come check out our show this Friday at NORAD on 22nd and Champa. Support local music and local everything." Check out the event page here.

This is spiritual news if I've ever heard it.  I like the idea of being more playful in life.
