This probably won’t be a regular sort of post for me, but this is too good not to share. After seeing Chromeo live at 9:30 Club last Monday, I stumbled across their new video, “Old 45’s.” Awesome shot, right? Hello mirrored guitar!
I saw a comment on Instagram that basically said…this is what would happen if Peter Frampton and Prince met up in 2014. I pretty much agree. Happy Monday, peeps!
This past weekend I crossed another goal off the old 2014 list and went to the Sweetlife festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion. It wasn’t the usual 3-day festival, but it met necessary criteria by having a lot of great bands there, so I jumped on board. I went with a friend and we kept the day fairly casual, showing up well after doors had opened and sitting back on the lawn people watching in between bands. See, here’s me being casual…
There were a few rain drops during the day, but ain’t no thang…
As the day went on, we managed to make quite a few friends that were seated near us. As it turns out, Sweetlife was riddled with 15 year olds getting high before their parents came to pick them up, so all the “oldies” decided to band together. Ahhh, to not be a teen ever again.
And of course as the day went on, there was plenty of dancing…
All in all, a really fun day that was drama-free and quite memorable! Goal accomplished.
As a little nod to my weekend plans, I’m just going to leave this here. Released in 1995; to be relived on Sunday.
Taking a break from the travel selfies, let’s give a nod to one of my fave 90’s artists that have *surprisingly* come up a lot in conversation this week. So here you go, here’s a little bit of TLC and ‘What About Your Friends’ (released in 1992).
Last weekend, I went to see Bastille at 9:30 Club. If you’re not familiar with their tune Pompeii, you need to crawl out from under that rock and turn on your radio. The gig was completely sold out and couldn’t believe the massive queue circled around the block to get in the doors. I wasn’t even sure how that many people had legit tickets.
But somehow they managed to squeeze them all in and the show was fantastic.
I was up in the balcony, so got a really nice view of everything. Especially when lead singer Dan came down and sang on the bar. So close, yet so far. Classic.
They didn’t do loads of talking in between songs, but they really got the crowd going. Everyone was just so excited and they have an amazing first album.
If you need a song to get you hooked, here’s one of my faves at the minute:
“I’ll see you in the future when we’re older, when we are full of stories to be told.”
