Guns, sex, incarceration, violence, addiction and getting ready for prom… These are all very dramatic situations that plague our every day lives while living in the wealthy neighborhoods of California. Will Brenda break up with Dylan? Is Pacey going to die? These are the questions that ensure our summers won’t end soon enough, however for those that don’t really care (and don’t even know that Pacey isn’t a character), The OC still manages to leave us with probably the most puzzling question of all- why are Abercrombie clones rocking out to a Matt Pond PA cover of a Neutral Milk Hotel song? Who is responsible for this apparent injustice and how can they be stopped?

Her name is Alexandra Patsavas, music supervisor for The OC.

My initial intention was to grill her. To do some serious investigative reporting and uncover the dark exploitative truth about indie rock being on The OC. However, and I am somewhat sad to report, it’s all legit. Indie snobs, do not read on because as I was doing this interview not only did I learn that Ms. Patsavas is 100% on the real, but the cast and staff are as well. *sigh* It’s a dark day for elitism.

Can you give me a brief work history, pre-OC?

I used to be a college promoter and bring bands to campus. Then I was in Los Angeles working in the Film/TV department of BMI which is where I got started in the music supervision. In 1995 is when I officially started working with Roger Corman on Roswell and Boston Public.

How did you end up working on the OC?

I was working with the executive producer when he was working on Fastlane and he introduced me to Josh who created The OC.
