Caecilia Hubbard, 26
Lives in: West Graceland
Backstory: “People often jump to conclusions when they meet me,” says Hubbard, who deejays under the name Mother Hubbard. “They assume I am some uneducated wild and crazy party girl. Nights that I am not spinning at a club, I spend at home reading, playing video games, cooking, or watching hockey.” Raised in Austin, Texas, Hubbard grew up listening to classical music and played the French horn well enough to consider making it her career. She graduated from Loyola University with honors and now works with Life During Wartime, a music collective dedicated to promoting political awareness.
