Getting over your exes can be hard. But what about the songs that remind us of those relationships? In 2017, after a particularly bad breakup, a Spotify playlist of over 70 songs entitled, “The Ex Files” was created as a means of catharsis and nostalgia. Songs harkening back to flings, crushes, puppy love, and more were added. As the playlist grew, so did the desire to hear these songs materialize on stage along with the stories they inspired. Join our narrator and band as they travel through decades and genres (and technology) to play the songs that bring up memories of her most noteworthy exes. From Memorex to Air Pods, mall bangs to mom jeans, and Janis to Robyn, these songs and stories span twenty years of love, loss, and laughs.
