I Love Going To Concerts

So the concert I went to was absolutely ACE.  I'm officially in love with the band Grouplove.  Like, to me, they are the epitome of what a band should be.  They got up on stage and just grooved and danced and generally had a kick-ass time up there doing something they loved for all of us in the audience, and I just wanted to go up and hug them all and tell them all that they are beautiful people and that they are one of the reasons I listen to music.

Here.  Listen to their music.  It will make you happy.  Or at least, it makes me happy.  So give it a try.

Honestly, they acted the same way on stage that they did in these videos.  They just seemed to be having an crazy awesome time.

Plus it doesn't hurt that their lead singer is attractive.  I mean damn.  He had pink hair too, at the concert.  Adorbs.

But the concert was so much fun.  Reptar, who I had no idea about before, are now becoming a new favorite.  They are like stoner music, like, the kind of music you would listen to stoned.  A little bit like MGMT.  Not that I'm a stoner (I am morally opposed to smoking weed; that is another post for another day, however.), as I am not.  It just makes me think of that genre of music.  It was really good.  You should check them out.

So were Stephie Coplan and the Pedestrians.  THEY WERE ACE.  Oh my god, she is my hero.  I love her music, and that band just has such a cool sound, and oh my god so good!!!

You should go to their bandcamp and buy their EP since I can't yet.  DO IT DO IT DO IT!!! They are so talented and they deserve everything they get.  They are better than half of the stuff on the radio nowadays, and they aren't even signed.  Get on that, yo!

And Two Door Cinema Club.  Oh my god.  I can't even begin to describe how much I love this band.  It's a lot.  Let's leave it at that.  I was dancing like a lunatic for the full hour they were on.  They were just so good!!!  I can't wait for their new album; lucky me, I got to hear two new songs off of it.  Winner winner!

So summer has started for me, finally.  It doesn't feel like it, but it is summer.  Hopefully the weather will pick up.  Here's hoping!

Let me know how your summers have been!  What have y'all been up to?

Love and kisses,


P.S. Was that enough links?  I'm crazy :)


  1. This sounds like so much fun and ultimate cool. I went to a concert with lots of screaming teenage girls around me. I loved it, but it wasn't very cool.

  2. That sounds like so much fun!

    So, this is completely unrelated to this post, but have you watched Death Note? I just started watching it, and your name is the same.

  3. Argh! Your post reminded me how I'm missing Coldplay and Ben Folds Five in the next few weeks!

    Sorry, I'd listen to the music now, but my little bro's in the room an he'd probably start giving me looks that resemble the face of a middle-aged man watching as his boss comes into work with a dildo strapped to his head (I'll listen to them later though, I promise).

    I do like Grouplove and Two Door Cinema Club, so I'm not completely clueless!

  4. Ugh, that sounds awesome! How come you get to go to all these cool concerts, ay?


Hey ya goon! If you liked it, tell me so!
