music

……….And its coming closer

So if anyone ever pays attention to me or anything that I am about, I love music. I just went to see a band in the city(San Francisco) last Friday and had the best time. Went to see a local band that is no longer together but came back to do one show. Strata….Look them up. Awesome. I was in such a funk last week that I thought nothing would be able to get me out of it. Super depressed and emo for NO REASON at all. I couldnt figure it out but take me out for a show in the city and BAM! Im back. I am going to Oakland on Thursday to see Chvrches which is one of my favorite bands and to top this whole week off I am going to see Interpol too! Music is my world and I cant imagine my life without it. It makes everything better. It makes everything sadder. It makes everything happier. It makes me.

3 weeks and counting and I will be hopping on a plane to Austin, Texas for my first trip to Austin City Limits. ACL if you’re local. Haha. Anyways I have always wanted to go to Texas because in my mind everyone is in cowboy boots and big ole hats. I know its not true but everyone thinks California is all palm trees and beaches….Well I guess it kinda is. Anyways I cant wait to get out of here for a few days, listen to new music, and explore a town I have been dying to go to forever. I promise to whoever is reading this that I will meet every single person humanly possible while I am there and really soak up the experience. I want to be part of everything, do anything, and see it all. Be nice to me Austin and I promise to be nice back.

I cant wait. I am going to party my face off x 10. Looking forward to meeting so many new friends.

That one song………

Every now and again I hear a song and something about it just moves me. Is it the words? I dont know. Is it the music? I dont know. All that I know is that everything about it combined together just works for me. Love this song and band. Small group from New Zealand who are going to blow up one day and I thought I would spread the word before they do.

Broods. Check them out if you can.

Most amazing song. It really pulls on my heart stings, whatever that means. Your mom has heart strings.

 

 

Turn down for what?

Well I can name a few things. How about:
Turn down for bed
Turn Down for work
Turn down for cleaning
Turn down so your neighbors dont get mad at you
Turn down for church
Turn down for eating
Turn down for taking your dog to the dog park
Etc.

I have heard this damn song so much that it makes me miss Gangnam Style. So a little about me…..I love music. I am currently in a music slump so any suggestions would be helpful. I just bought tickets to see my favorite band in Oakland in a few short weeks. Interpol. I cant wait. I also just bought my mom Rascal Flatts tickets for her birthday so that should be fun. I am going to rent a limo and the whole nine. I also have a few Dave Matthews shows to go to later this year but I am kinda over them. I have seen them about 50 times now so you can see why. I still like DMB but I enjoy other music so much more. My most favorite thing I am doing this summer/Oct is ACL(Austin City Limits). I have never even been to Texas before let alone a music festival there. I am super excited and I cant wait to just stroll around and get lost. If you have any tips or places that I must see and get drunk at please let me know.

If you have an album from beginning to end is a must have, please let me know. I am down to try anything at this point and I trust you since you have read this far.

Hella music

I don’t play any instruments. I don’t know how to produce an album. I don’t know anything about pitch. But I know that I love music more than anything in my life. Art is a close second but I guess music falls under art.
When I wake up in the mornings I have music on while I get ready for work. When I get into my car i plug my phone in and listen to an album that I love. When I get to work I plug my phone in and listen to a playlist. When I drive home I plug my phone in and listen to more music. I have to have music on most of the time. Everything evolves around music and sound. Music can put me into a happy mood, sad mood, it can wake you up and it can calm you down. I believe there is a song for every occasion. I love being able to hear a song and remember exactly when and where i was in my life when that song was important to me. Who it reminded me of. How it made me feel. Good times and bad times. What else can bring all that back? I love going to concerts and I have probably been to over a couple of hundred in my lifetime. I wish I had a list of them all. Such great memories.

Music is everywhere. Try saying the alphabet without singing it. I dare you. I can remember a song I loved from 1988 word for word But I can’t remember the information from my history book that year. That’s amazing to me.

I would list out bands that I love but I would be on here forever. Instead I will show a couple of albums that I am Into this week. I suggest you check them out if you are looking for something new. I only like great stuff.

I use rhapsody on my phone. I pay $10 a month and I can listen to anything I want at anytime. No need to download , unless you want to. It’s all streaming.

Wonder what I will like next week?

What are you into? I love discovering new bands.
