Happy Thursday! I’m sorry I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog front. I have been thinking a lot about music and you lovely music people though. I had a near-religious moment earlier this evening while in a bubble bath listening to Van Morrison. It was specifically an absurdly beautiful version of Into the Mystic that got me going. Reminded me yet again that music is magic.
But alas, I’m here to announce another Nothing to Get Hung About hiatus. I’m attending Outside Lands Music Festival in my lovely home city of San Francisco, CA this weekend. I’m insanely excited, but it does mean I won’t be at my computer.
You can however expect detailed reviews and witty commentary next week when the festival is over. Expect to hear about LCD Soundystem, Radiohead, Lord Huron, The Oh Hellos, Third Eye Blind, Chance the Rapper, Major Lazer, Sufjan Stevens and more! The sets I’m most excited for by far are LCD Soundsystem and Radiohead. My love for LCD literally knows no bounds and the very idea of partying with James Murphy makes me giddy. Listen to this insanely good version of All My Friends. LCD is just the perfect child of punk and electronic/dance. Ever since seeing Shut Up and Play the Hits I’ve been dying to see LCD live. I’m so excited. And Radiohead has been one of my favorite bands for as long as I can remember. I’m stoked to see Thom Yorke in the flesh and hear his beautiful, beautiful voice.
Anyways wish me and my weekend in the park luck and love. May the music be with you.
