Best Barback in a Music Club (2008)

Jordan at the Knitting Factory

Working the shift at a totally sold-out Magnetic Fields show, Jordan at the Knitting Factory dealt with a fervent, whining assemblage in need of being turned away by suggesting that people be let in if they were willing to be stamped on the center of their foreheads. But besides being an apt perceiver of vanity, Jordan is never boring, because he can draw insanely well (helping to diminish malaise with that game in which two people fold a piece of paper in half and then take turns drawing either the upper or lower body of an ultimately gross amalgam. Example: a dragon torso with shapely human legs and high heels). Music-related fact: He used to be the roadie for the Toasters.
