Pop Etc's Chris Chu and I go on a Cobble Hill bar crawl, stopping for drinks at the Long Island Bar and Henry Public. Chu reveals how seeing Elliott Smith in concert made him realize that an artist's success isn't necessarily tied to their own happiness. Instead, Chris' hope is that people will listen to Pop Etc and bond their personal experiences to it, which is why the band's latest album is called Souvenir. With a tune in the final scene of the final Twilight movie and couples asking him to use his songs for their weddings, he's getting his wish.
