Let’s kickstart the start of the semester/year with concerts! YESSSSSS! Since the start of my job I am able to save a little money for the good things ;). And I decided that I should record/write my experience and thoughts about the concerts I attend to this year. What better way to start it than with Soccer Mommy, Hovvdy and Motiongazer.
This is the last week of classes! The semester went by so fast! This past weekend I went to a concert at The Baracuda for Levitation Fest and saw The Garden. Opening for them was Tijuana Panthers who had a really great set and performance.
The venue was really cool, I got to be literally 2 feet away from the performers. I could have reached out my hand and touched their guitars. To prepare for seeing The Garden, I’ve been listening to their latest album and other favorite songs of mine from them. I know I’ve talked about them before, but I really like this band.
Call The Dogs Out
Give it a listen, give music chance.
ON OCTOBER 1 I attended a concert for one of my most favorite artists ever
What I forgot was that The Garden is touring with Mac Demarco’s group. I bought these tickets to ACL Live about maybe six months ago and what I only new what that The Flamming Lips was performing with a opening performance of Mac Demarco (which is who I really wanted to see, but I do like The Flamming Lips). Anyway, I had no idea that The Garden was going to perform. The week before the concert I kept getting emails reminding me to print my tickets before the concert. At the end of the email it had the line up which was:
The Garden 8:00
Mac Demarco 8:50
Flamming Lips 10:40
And I completely flipped out. My boyfriend told me not to get my hopes up. But why would they even put that in the email? Was my ticket finally fully worth what I was paying for. And what do you know…….The Garden came out and did an amazing set. Nothing could describe how happy I was to see them. Me and RJ where up in the balcony assigned seating in the first row so the view was perfect. The only problem was that no one in the balcony wanted to stand and jam out. Technically the population of the crowd was 80% in their forties with no idea who Mac Demarco or The Garden was. Me and RJ were itching so bad to stand up but we didn’t because we would block people behind us. Next time though, we will see Mac in the pit. Damn, I can’t even describe the feeling when I saw him, it was so surreal.
Damn, twenty songs of the week in. I actually have a good list of songs of the week. Recently I went to a concert for Mac Demarco and a surprise opening of The Garden! But I will talk about that in another post.
These are my songs of the week 😉
For this weeks SOTW here is a little taste of the artist CUCO. Who is an 18 year old Chicano artist. I may have mention about on of his songs a long time ago. The one I a currently listening to is
Lover Is A Day
There is other songs but this one is always on my mind.
Last night my boyfriend told me that CUCO is coming to Austin, Texas in October. And of course…I want to go!
I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe week, my prayers are out to my fellow Texans during Hurricane Harvey.
If you have any music recommendations PLEASE let me know!
Give it a listen, give music a chance.
ARE YOU READYY FOR YOUR BLESSINGGGS???
This past weekend I went to the JMBLYA festival to she Chance the The Rapper. This was one of the greatest weekends I have ever had. It was actually one of the longest weekends I have had and the Friday was the last day I had classes. Which I was not able to go to any of them for certain reasons. Anyway, this weekend was extremely eventful, which is the reason why I could not write or post anything these past days. Most of the time we stayed up until 3. My body would wake up at 9:50 am every new day, which was very weird considering that we stayed up so late
On Friday my boyfriends sister’s,friends, and cousins all came to Austin to take us to the JMBLYA festival. JMBLYA (jambalaya) is a festival where all artists derive from hip-hop, rap,and EDM music. Honestly, I did not know any of these artists except for Chance the Rapper. But I feel that this festival gave me an opportunity to listen to new music and artists from this genre.
Here is the Line Up
