SF WEEKLY -- Belchere met Nelson as a freshman studying Creative Writing at San Francisco State — “One of my first memories of him is playing Dance Dance Revolution with a couple of friends at a friend’s birthday party,” Belchere recalls — although they didn’t begin writing music together until after she’d graduated.
