MIss Ess: What was the moment you really got into music? What were yobonnie raittu listening to? Where were you?

When I walked in the first time I felt so overwhelmed and so excited I thought I was at an amusement park… but for music. I ended up spending 4 hours and way too much money but I was instantly in love.
