Seryn at North Star Bar 10/17

I honestly don't know where/how to even start to describe my experience at North Star Bar last Monday night. So, instead of attempting to recreate the night with words, I'm just going to post a couple of videos that I took of my favorite songs. It in no way makes up for not actually being there in person, but it's the best way that I know how to express how amazingly beautiful it was. I hope I haven't offended anyone listing this post as a live review still...

Deer Tick + Fun at UPenn 10/14

Originally, I thought that going to this concert after a very long 12 hour work day was a great idea. I mean, what better way to de-stress than a concert? Well, it turned out to be a little more stressful than I had hoped. I broke my #1 rule when it comes to concerts: get there before the show starts!

Seryn - Playing North Star Bar TONIGHT! (10/17)

Flashback to about two months ago, when I flew to Texas to visit some family right before I started my prep class for nursing boards. I set up an interview with one of my favorite up and coming bands, Seryn, in their hometown of Denton. Don't go searching for it though, as I got so caught up with studying for boards, passing boards, and now my actual big girl job that I have yet to put the final touches on it.

Kingsfoil - "Give It Up Now" Video

Just wanted to share a new video from one of my favorite local bands, which shouldn't be of any surprise to you as I post about them all the time. The video features Kingsfoil jamming out, interspersed with scenes of frontman Jordan David playing acoustic guitar while floating on water. Yes, you read that correctly. I hope the guitar didn't get water damaged!

The Boxer Rebellion Cancel North American Tour : (

I'm so bummed that this just popped up on my news feed. I've been a fan of this band ever since I first saw then in Going the Distance, and have been looking forward to their 11/17 show at World Cafe Live ever since they announced their tour. I can only imagine what personal tragedy they've endured, and I wish them the best. I really REALLY hope to see them next year.
