UGA student Allison Weiss started playing guitar at age 15 to impress a boy in her creative writing class. She decided to become a punk rock star, learned a few power chords, and he asked her out. One month later their relationship ended, but her passion for music lived on. Her first night in Athens, Weiss played an open mic night, and she’s played at least one gig a weekend during her college career. She graduates in May with a degree in graphic design. Her second album, “…Was Right All Along,” was released in November.
