VOXHAUL BROADCAST



I have been meaning to share music by Voxhaul Broadcast, I have been listening to their music for about two years now. I just love their song Leaving on the 5th. summer 2010 I think is best described with the song Why Not, I probably played that song on every bike ride. I don't believe I have seen them live, not sure why! I am going to put an effort to see them live this year because they are seriously a great band, and I bet their shows are a fun.


Here are my favorite songs FOR FREE
ya, your welcome xx






The Do LaB's Lineup at Coachella 2012


Week 1
Week 2



The Do LaB @ Coachella 2012 on

One of my many reasons why I love Coachella is because of the Do LaB. The vibe, the energy, and the music is just amazing and complete bliss. I am so excited to be spending my time at the Do LaB again this year.

SWIM DEEP



Can you guys play shows in Los Angeles for me? Please. Swim Deep is a trio of lads making great music. They recently came out with a music video for King City, which is fabulous. I love the song and the vibe of the music video. I would love to see them live one night, I think they would be a great show.
HERE BELOW is King City music video


Wanted to share this track too because I love it. OKAY.

Village - ALPINE








WALK THE MOON



Indie/Rock band from Cincinnati, OH Walk the Moon came out with a song Anna Sun that is just playing on almost every radio station, and I'm not complaining! I love their sound, at first I thought perhaps Young the Giant had came out with a new single when I first heard Anna Sun on the radio because I think the lead singer of Walk the Moon has a similar voice to the lead singer Sameer in YTG. 
My favorite songs from Walk the Moon are obvi Anna Sun, and Tightrope. Check them out, please they are amazing. SPIN Magazine says, "poppy, art-rock quartet. Nylon Magazine has even caught their eyes in Band Crush with Ultraa girl





Get Gone (remixed RAC) - White Arrows



Love this band, song, remix, music video.

NAIL TATTOOS ♡ TOPSHOP



I am so excited to finally try out nail tattoo art! I had seen these on a blogger's site whose from the UK, and she had gotten them from Topshop for £7. I was so lucky enough to have one of my great friends in London this week go buy them for me and bring back to the states for me! 
Honestly, putting them on is the easiest thing ever. I normally paint by hand designs on my nails which takes quite some time, but these tattoo things are so quick and easy. They have directions in the packet, and its pretty self explanatory. It was my first time putting nail tattoo art on my nails so I did mess up on one of my thumbs.. the symbol is upside down! 
I recommend this product to anyone, I really had a great time painting my nails today!
Thanks Melissa for the Nail Art Tattoos!!

Saint Motel show at the Constellation

Last night was so much fun! I was literally in my PJs going to bed at 8 pm wishing I was going to the Saint Motel concert at the Constellation Room but to broke to pay for a ticket.. when I tweeted about my sadness. Then got a tweeted back randomly for a pair of tickets!! I called my good friend and jumped out of bed and tried looking decent! Such a great unexpected night! 
We ended up seeing like four bands... don't say anything but jumped from the Constellation Room to the Galaxy and saw The Dirt, Orgy, Saint Motel, and Jeramiah Red. Of course my favorite band was Saint Motel. I have been to over a billion of their shows and every time I just have the best time! Anyways, I just wanted to share my great unexpected night.

FESTIVAL WEAR || SHOES

What I have learned from camping at Coachella, is that sandals are nice to wear but when you're walking from your site to the festival grounds your feet get FILTHY! so much dirt, and water = mud. My feet were black by the end of the weekend last year.
This year I am getting High top Converse!! Don't really care if they get dirty as long as my feet don't!
If I have time before Coachella weekend I might stud my new converse... possibly.

I think I'm getting these cute booties for the weekend too... they look like a pair I want but are to expensive. So I compromise with these

Bongo Women's Dominique Rouched Bootie - Black


If you must wear sandals (which I will probably end up doing) I think these are pretty cool.
TIP, if you are buying new shoes wear them at least week or two in advance to try them out... you don't know how many times I bought new shoes for Coachella and they end up giving me the ugliest blisters. your feet = comfort > fashion

WHY I LOVE CONCERTS

^^Deadmau5 @ Coachella 2010 ^^
^^ Temper Trap @ HOB San Diego 2010 ^^
^^ Vampire Weekend @ Hollywood Bowl 2010 ^^
^^ Passion Pit @ Coachella 2010 ^^

^^ Coachella 2009 ^^
^^ Cold War Kids @ HB 2010 ^^
^^ Pheonix @ Coachella 2010 ^^

ALL PHOTOS TAKEN BY MYSELF

One of the main reasons why I love going to shows is probably because of the crowds. I love that everyone at shows come from different places, and we all come here for one reason. We share equal taste in something. A good show I think depends on the crowd, I get energy from the people around me. I mean can you see yourself having fun if no one is happy, or wasn't dancing?

IS TROPICAL - BILLABONG

IS TROPICAL working with  BILLABONG

I am obsessing over these T-Shirts! I live in a surfer town (Huntington Beach) where billabong brand is in almost every shop. I am waiting patiently till I see this tee or tank in HSS or Jack's Surf Shop. I would buy online but spending $50 on a Tee is way out of my broke college student bank account price range. I already have an outfit picked out to go with the Tank! If I see the price of it go down in time before Coachella I want to wear it when I'm in Indio. Or at least I want this tank before the summer for sure! Unfortunately until then I can only dream about it.
If you have no idea why I'm obsessing over this shirt and this band then please educated yourself with the video below.

RORY PHILLIPS



I stumbled upon this artist through twitter, and so happy I did. He is a London based DJ that has played in clubs through out Europe. He does remix from The XX, Digitalism, Munk, YACHT, etc. My favorite is probably the one by The XX or the one with Theophilus London. I would really love to go see him at a club in LA sometime soon, that would be a great night.
CHECK EM' OUT

GRIMES


GRIMES ||  FACEBOOK ||  TWITTER ||  MYSPACE 

Since her music video for Oblivion came out in the beginning of March I have been non stop listening to her new album! I watch that music video probably at least once a week, just something about it makes me so happy to see the video. Her new album is Visions. I recommend going out and getting it. I hope to see a tour in the near future for a couple of gigs in LA area. I just love her energy and style, and artistic view. If you didn't know she also likes to paint below is from her new album Visions and she actually drew the art, it's crazy good. I think one of the reasons why I love her work so much is because she is so different from all the other electronic artists, she is weird and strange. I enjoy seeing artists love their work and not trying to sound like what is already out there.


From the Visions new album here is a FREE download of Oblivion. My personal favorite song at the moment! Enjoy!!


In a post earlier I shared the Oblivion music video.
Here is another amazing music video for her song Vanessa.

The Ting Tings



I know you all must know The Ting Tings, they are a great duo. I really enjoyed their last album. I saw them back in 2009 at Coachella and their set was so much fun! They just released a new album out called Sounds From Nowheresville. Check it out, if you liked their first album then you'll for sure love their new work. Take a listen to their song Silence remixed by the Bag Raiders. I love it.


Also here are a bunch of remixes of the Hang it Up.

The Parlor Mob


Such a great band! They were an opener for The Pretty Reckless the other night at the House of Blues in LA.  I have never heard their music before that night and it was a great discovery. There was one song that I fell in love with, I'm not sure of the name but I got a White Stripes kinda vibe from their music. I loved it. And there was a point where the lead singer brings out a harmonica! That song was so good.
One random thing I noticed is that the band all were wearing really nice shoes, they all looked put together. Which I admire in a band.

Check out their soundcloud: DOGS





THE PRETTY RECKLESS GIG AT HOB SUNSET BLVD.

 
 
 
 

Taylor Momsen is by far the coolest girl ever. It amazes me that she is younger than me, and she acts way older than her age. The Pretty Reckless show was everything I expected and more. Surprisingly I loved her outfit, I was expecting some corset get up but her outfit was actually something I would try to wear (minus the sky high heals). My favorite song live was probably Zombie. Also the drummer from System of a Down played aerials with her and it was so good. I would totally go to another show of hers! Love her and her band.

ONE DIRECTION ON SNL



Boy bands are making a come back for sure! One Direction is a young British-Irish boy band that got their fame from singing on The X Factor, and shortly after the boys got signed with Sony Music. Their most popular song is "What Makes You Beautiful", it's so catchy! My favorite song is "One Thing".
I am so excited to see that they are performing on SNL April 7, 2012!!!! I know American teen boppers are going to fall hard for these young boys.

This music video is so cool! One Thing.
