~Tranquilize, Finish Ticket [[Such a great band. Check them out.]]
So last week I went to yet another music festival. The 2nd one of the week/month/year. It was great. I saw American Authors, Smallpools, Charli XCX and Andrew McMahon from Jack's Mannequin. It was awesome. Sigh. Neon Trees were also there but I don't like them so I left when they came on.
I was in the front row for the whole thing, meaning I was standing for like 6 hours or something lol. Only in the name of music. American Authors were fantastic. The lead singer is kinda cute. He got off the stage and went into the crowd. Songs you should listen to: Believer, Luck, Keep Me Dreaming, and Hit It.
Smallpools were amazing!!! I discovered them last year on 8tracks and fell in love immediately. They're perfect live. The lead singer Sean Scanlon was smiling/nodding at me a lot because I was singing along to everything. They're coming back in the fall. Makes me happy :) Sean also came into the crowd. Their full length album is coming out soon but every song on their EP is lovely. Especially: Mason Jar, No Story Time, and Dreaming.
Charli XCX was so great! She's a great performer. She's just so cute and silly. I seriously love her music. I love almost every song off her record. She's up there in my mind with Marina Diamandis and Lorde. Ahhhh she's so "next level" which is her favorite phrase hahaha. When she went into the crowd, she was literally 12 inches away from me. I have videos on my tumblr if you wanna see. Songs you NEED to hear: Nuclear Seasons, You're the One, Stay Away, Set Me Free, SuperLove, You (Ha Ha Ha), Take My Hand, So Far Away, and Lock You Up.
Andrew McMahon was great too. I love his EP but he didn't sing any songs from it. I love Synesthesia, Catching Cold, and After the Fire. Oh, and his daughter is adorable (she wasn't there, but her pics are on his IG). It was perfect when he sang Dark Blue, of course.
IT WAS ALL SO GOOD! (: I coulda met many of the artists if I had given up my spot in the front but I didn't wanna do that... Also I am majorly deaf now owwwww I just got some earplugs lol seriously this concert life is hard to keep up with. Hehehe...I might just have to start not trying to get to the front...
Ingrid Michaelson and Kodaline next... We shall see if that works out.
