Perfect Ending

We all know that Summer ended September 21st but the days and nights surely haven’t gotten the message; which I am perfectly content with at the time being. A couple of nights ago Chris and I went to a Wilco concert at the Hollywood Bowl (if you have never been to the Hollywood Bowl, you MUST go) and it was perfect. The Hollywood bowl offers outside seating under the stars, where you are free to bring in your own food and beverages to enjoy while you marvel at the amazing acoustics that the bowl has to offer.

When I bought the tickets to see Wilco I initially did it as a gift for Chris and I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to appreciate the live performance that the band had to offer, to my surprise I really did have a good time. Although there were a few songs that tugged on my heart strings I can say that it was an experience I was glad to have.

Wilco was the perfect event to mark the end of our Summer; for me it was back to school and for Chris it was off to China for work.

It has been only 5 or so days since the concert and I cannot stop listening to Wilco, my mind goes back to that night and of the good times that I was able to have with my friend before having to get back to the real world. If you aren’t familiar with Wilco I suggest checking them out, Chris and I have dubbed them “Old Man Rock” if you see the band and listen to their tunes you will know why. I can’t think of any other band that sings about doing the laundry and mowing the lawn and does it so well and makes it rock.

Endless Summer

20120731-231830.jpg

If you know me then you know when I like something I REALLY like something almost to the point of overdosing on it. What’s that saying? You can never have too much of a good thing. Well I completely agree! Lately I cannot stop listening to this band called Best Coast. (for your investigating pleasure…. www.bestcoast.us) I don’t know what it is, the simple melodies, the singers soothing vocals, or just the memories that their music provokes, but I LOVE it. It has an endless summer feel, which is only fitting for California. I have found myself tuning my pandora and spotify to a channel that reflects the music of Best Coast and I have been pleasantly surprised by the selection that I have received. All of their lyrics seems to resonate deep within me, and they bring back memories of such good summer adventures as well as those that were experienced in other seasons. In California we are blessed with many days where the beach is an acceptable place to be. If you are stuck in the office or in traffic or even inside on a rainy day I suggest turning their tunes on it will definitley brighten your day.

Endless summer? Yes please
