The Moldy Peaches - Anyone Else But You
This song came on when my itunes was on random just now and the wave of nostalgia that hit me literally knocked me down. Gonna take a moment to process those emotions while Kimya Dawson and Adam Green are adorable.
Paramore - Still Into You
Because this was on a mix someone made for me recently and i have all sorts of feelings associated with that.
Kate Nash - Navy Taxi
So I’m pretty thrilled to see this lady tonight in Santa Ana. She’s one of those artists that just makes me smile and feels so right when I listen to her. I’ve been a bit knocked off my foundation by the actions of some people in my life lately, so this couldn’t come at a better time.
Alkaline Trio - Kiss You To Death
There will be a day when I won’t only post music on here, hopefully soon, but today is not that day. Some things changed in my life and this doesn’t feel like the most safe space at the moment, at least not the way it used to. Because of that, I’ve been a bit more reserved with sharing my life. However, I adore all of you to bits and do keep up on all the wonderful things you post.
Taking a ride down to your place,
Dropping by in just a while.
And I don’t care if we fuck,
or if we talk,
or if we cry.
I just miss you,
I want to kiss you to death tonight.
Bayside - Mona Lisa
This month is a marathon of amazing shows for me, yet I’m still overwhelmingly excited about seeing Bayside and Alkaline Trio tomorrow. I’ve seen them both before, but there’s something about how I’m feeling emotionally lately that cannot wait to be sweaty and gross as I scream every word to the songs of these 2 fantastic bands.
Jimmy Eat World - Damage
I spent Record Store Day this past Saturday at Fingerprints in Long Beach with Jimmy Eat World and Best Coast. It was pretty amazing to see these 2 amazing bands live, for free, and 5 feet from me. I’m too busy lately, but it’s hard to complain when I’m busy with shows like this one.
Tegan and Sara - Closer
Did I mention I get to see these ladies tonight? Because I’m really freaking thrilled. Long drive with a good friend and good music. I definitely need a night away and listening to Tegan and Sara and Stars as the sun sets over the beautiful Dan Diego bay isn’t a bad way to go.
Stars - Your Ex-Lover is Dead
I’m not sure if I’m more excited to see Stars or Tegan and Sara tomorrow. The show is in San Diego and I’m already running on empty, but I know it’s so, so worth it. I have loved this band for so long and missed too many chances to see them. Stars is one of those bands that is just perfect to me and makes everything in this world a little more right. To say I’m a mess lately is the understatement of the year and a night listening to 2 bands I love with all my heart sounds like a much needed step in the right direction.
The Postal Service - Nothing Better
There are not words for how excited I am to see these guys tonight. I’ve been overwhelmed these past few years by the number of bands I thought I’d never get to see, getting back together to tour. There is so much nostalgia wrapped up in every single song on this album for me. If I can survive the massive wall of emotions hearing these songs will surely hit me with, it’s going to be a tremendous night.
Passion Pit - Little Secrets
At long last I finally get to see these guys live, tonight. I was out of town last time they were here, so this has been long awaited. I’m certain it will be a great night.
