    Multi-instrumentalist Zia McCabe, keyboardist of The Dandy Warhols, is today's Take Aim opponent.

    Having sold over one million records combined, The Dandy Warhols released their first live album Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia Live at the Wonder on March 25 via The End Records.

    Recorded in their hometown at The Wonder Ballroom during the 13th anniversary of breakthrough album Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia, the live album puts you front and center at a Dandys show.

    Now we have them front and center in the Take Aim ring. Zia's pretty awesome.

    If you were not doing music, you would be...

    Dancing, acting or working at a yoga retreat on a tropical island.

    Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?

    I can weld, use most power tools, minor auto work, sew, knit, cook, dance and punch.

    Pick ONE song on your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?

    'Don't Shoot' from This Machine is about my sister getting robbed at gunpoint in her home when she lived in Eugene. Drummer Brent DeBoer wrote the music and I knew when I heard it that her story fit the music.

    Finish this sentence: The Dandy Warhols are the band that...


    Favorite venue to play EVER and why? And you can only pick one!

    The Olympia in France. It's legendary, we sold it out on a Sunday and our show was epic.
