Do you ever find yourself reverting back to all the music you listened to in high school. Well, it has been one of those weeks for me. I've been revisiting all of my old favorite albums, and remembering why I loved these bands so much. The last few days bands like The Early November, Brand New, Underoath, Cursive, Copeland, Stars, and Hellogoodbye (oh geez) have come up on my playlist. Lets just say, I've been taking a long walk through memory music lane (and fully enjoying it!).
I really have so many good memories tied to music. Growing up, music was such a huge part of my life. I remember never being separated from my cassette player (ah haha), CD player (oh my!), and ipod in later years. I will never forgot being about five years old and jamming out to Barry White on my cassette player (I thought I was so cool, haha).
In high school I went to A LOT of shows. Every week there seemed to be one, two, or sometimes even three shows that I just had to go to. Usually the shows were at local venues, and sometimes in random backyards. I know I've mentioned this before, but I've always envied those on the East Coast that got to experience basement shows. I swear, if I would have grown up there, that would have been my scene. I love a good, intimate show!
Nowadays, this is the type of outfit I would most likely wear to a show. Flat, comfy shoes have always been a must, but I kind of like getting a little dressed up for shows. In high school my show uniform was always a band t-shirt, jeans, and a pair of Vans. Funny how things change!
Today I have more grad school work to catch up on, and I also hope to get a little walk in with Scott. Tonight I'm hanging out with a few of my favorite friends in downtown Phoenix to discuss the final details of the Phoenix Style Collective launch party/benefit for The GrowOP. If you're local, we would love to have you attend! It's this Friday (the 27th), and you can find all of the details right here. XO
