Getting Tuesday started off with some good tunes

21 May

Ok, it’s not Monday but we’ll continue the Monday Happiness into this Tuesday. Here’s a little playlist to crank up as you work away the day. This one is all over the place and spans a bunch of different genres but I hope you enjoy!

Where Did This Come From?! Firefly Music Festival – July 20-22 Dover, Delaware

1 Apr

WOW. Ok when I think of Delaware I usually think of Capriotti’s, Blue Hens and the first state to ratify the US constitution but certainly not music (but did you know Bob Marley once lived there?!) until now courtesy of the Firefly Music Festival.  JUST ANNOUNCED and set to rock July 20-22 at the Woodlands of Dover International Speedway, this music festival is coming in hot with plenty of fire power.  Headliners include The Killers, The Black Keys and Jack White! WHOA!  Also slated to perform are The Flaming Lips, Passion Pit, Lupe Fiasco, Michael Franti, GROUPLOVE, Allen Stone, Girl Talk, Trampled By Turtles, Walk The Moon, Bombay Bicycle Club, Charles Bradley, The Head and The Heart, Matt Costa, Penguin Prison, Imagine Dragons and more.

On The East Coast? Check Out: The Sweetlife Festival

28 Mar

Ok, this may be one of the coolest events of the year.  Check out The Sweetlife Festival being held May 1 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland.  Presented by sweetgreen, a Washington D.C. based restaurant group dedicated to sourcing local and organic ingredients and with a commitment to the environment and their community, the event will pair wholesome food with an amazing line-up of music.  Performing at the annual festival this year are: The Strokes, Girl Talk, Lupe Fiasco, Crystal Castles, Cold War Kids, Ra Ra Riot, Theophilus London, Walk The Moon, U.S. Royalty and Modern Man. I personally think this is an insane event and if I lived in the area you better believe I’d be going.  Even better, tickets are only $55 and VIP tickets are $100. Big props to the Washington D.C. based company and bringing music to help push the case for eating better and caring for our environment.

Now Playing: GIVERS – “Up Up Up”

24 Jan

It’s Music Monday and what better way to start the week off than listening to GIVERS’ “Up Up Up.”  Hopefully this upbeat track from the pure fun Louisiana rockers will get you going on the right foot and have good vibes running through your veins.

If you’re in the Northwest catch them this week with Ra Ra Riot and for the rest of us, GIVERS will be once again playing SXSW this year.
