La Sera’s Katy Goodman’s On Her Last Day on Earth: “I’d Probably Do ‘Shrooms”

Read all of the indie rocker’s answers to the DuJour Questionnaire

Katy Goodman shot to indie rock stardom as part of Vivian Girls, the New York-based band that helped popularize the hazy, girl-group-tinged guitar rock that’s been so popular in recent years. Now Goodman’s on tour with La Sera, her equally gauzy and charming solo act—she’s playing Montreal’s Cabaret Mile End on Oct. 26 and will make her way across the country in the coming weeks.

La Sera’s most recent release, Sees The Light, has rased the profile of Goodman, who’s played concerts around the globe and been the entertainment at high-profile events like a recent Helmut Lang Fashion Week party. Here, Goodman answers our questionnaire.

What was the best day of your life?

Hmm, that’s a tough one!  I’m gonna go with today.

The worst?

Oh, God, I don’t even want to think about it! 

If you could spend a day in someone else’s shoes, who would it be?


What’s your favorite hour of day?

Probably 10-11 p.m. That’s usually when La Sera is performing.

If you could relive any day in history, what would it be?

The day I was born—but I would be weirdly aware of what was happening. Not in a gross way, in a cool, this-is-the-first-time-I’m-breathing-air-and-seeing-the-world way.

Did you break a sweat today?

Not at all. Although I did take a nice walk around Williamsburg.

What was the best conversation you had today?

Hmm, the one with Ben and Sasha from [online music channel] Noisey while we ate sandwiches.

If you wore a uniform every day, what would it be?


I didn’t want to, but today I _________.

Ate a carb. Just kidding. I would never do such a thing.

How would you spend your last day on Earth?

I would probably do ’shrooms or something.
