I had a very busy week filled with a work party and back to back shows. I’ll also be taking another quick jaunt up to LA to see my loves, Parade of Lights! I’ve missed them so much!

I’m not entirely sure what happened last week. It all seems to be a blur right now. Guess I was either super busy or super tired or some weird combination of things. But this week I’m looking forward to two shows in particular… Dirty Sweet, who swore they wouldn’t play again (so much for that) at their farewell show many moons ago and Nothing But Thieves. I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing them before so I’m super excited about that!!! Here’s hoping you all have a lovely week of music as Rocktober continues!

Last week I had the absolute joy of seeing Neon Trees at the Troubadour in LA! It was such an incredible and amazing experience and I’m totally okay with the four hours of sleep I got that night. It was such a joy to see a band I love so much in a much more intimate venue than of late. There were some amazing moments and memories made that I will cherish for quite some time.

We’ve had a pretty busy calendar lately but in case you haven’t noticed ROCKTOBER is upon us again! Tons to choose from this week and there really is no bad choice. Have fun!!!

I had what felt like one of the longest and most exhausting weeks ever. It seems like I didn’t get everything done and even though I was busy, all I wanted to do was take a nap.

I just got back from Vegas after spending the weekend eating, sleeping, and dancing. I was at the Mix 94.1 Bite of Vegas shindig where I made new friends, ate some good food, and got to dance to Vertical Horizon, Eve6, LeAnn Rimes, Rachel Platten, and Neon Trees!! I did miss Sean Hook, which is a bummer but the whole event was absolutely lovely! I’d totally go back again.

This weekend we have Kaaboo, which should be a blast! I can decide who I’m looking forward to seeing more… Pink or Alanis Morissette. I haven’t seen Alanis but Pink is such a badass and I’ve only seen her once. Thankfully they don’t have conflicting set times! Small favors.

I’m still riding that post show high courtesy of the double header of The Silent Comedy this weekend. Those guys just warm my heart so much. It’s kind of hard to put into words. And while their shows are few and far between these days, I always have the absolute best time with their music and friends I’ve made from their shows. I could probably go on but I’m just going to stop right there.

It’s a new week and fresh shows! I don’t know if I’ll be able to make it out to anything after my past weekend, which included some very early mornings. However, if I can, these are some good options…
