Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 5/20-5/26

I’m noticing how I start off every post talking about the weather. At least, I have been the last few times. In keeping with tradition, the weather is a wonderfully sunny 85 degrees outside. It’s been pleasant all weekend but all I’ve wanted to do lately is sleep. Maybe it’s because I’m finally done with school or maybe it has to do with being out 3 times in a row last week. I have to say that Friday night’s Jimmy Eat World and IAMDYNAMITE show was pretty epic. I’m smitten with IAMDYNAMITE and despite not being super familiar with Jimmy Eat World’s discography, I had a blast watching them play. Such good times. We have more coming this week with the likes of Bloc Party, The Neighbourhood, and Cold War Kids this week.

Amanda’s SD Show Calendar 8/29-9/4

So, I tried to be a good person and get this post out yesterday because I have school Mondays and Wednesdays. This obviously didn’t happen and it might have had something to do with the fact that I was at a shoot all day. Exhausting and wonderful though it was, I was not able to compose my post. However, you should take the time to look up SD Soundsystem. They have been doing some really cool stuff with some really cool bands and I’m thankful to be a small part of it.

Anyways, the day is still early, school is done and I can do what I’m here to do today….

Happy Turkey Week! Or if you are of the vegetarian/vegan persuasion, Happy Tofurkey Week! I hope everyone is getting ready for a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and loved ones with lots of good food to go with the good company. I’m spending my time with my mom and all the animals. Not sure what we are doing yet but I know there will be tons of leftovers. Even with the holiday, its a rather busy week. However, if you do anything this week, cruise to Mossy Scion and donate for the food drive. Three cans of food for the homeless will score you a show with The Howls and The Silent Comedy. It’s win/win all around 🙂
