So it's now July and mostly what I've been up to is writing and stressing out about my thesis. Which will basically be the tune that I will be singing for the next two months. Ah well. C'est la vie... Just a small step towards the career goal right?
ANYWHO onto more fun things... GIGS!
The most recent gig that I went to was the absolutely fabulous Janelle Monae. She was absolutely amazing. The show itself was an amazing treat. I've always said the best shows not only have the artist at their very best but a true entertaining bit as well. Treat for the eyes as well as the ears if you will. Because of this until now the Green Day/Jimmy Eat World double headliner that I went to with a bunch of my friends during undergrad and the Jason Mraz/Makepeace brothers/Bushwalla show I went to that had the undertones of magic involved with Justin Willman (formerly known as Justin Kredible) are the two best gigs I have been to... bar Janelle Monae. She had the same kind of theme as in her music video for "Tightrope" which was very cool. I didn't get any really great photos as my camera ran out battery but this is what I've got:

BUT the night before I left for California Meghan and I went to watch The Tallest Man on Earth. Contrary to popular belief he most definitely is not the tallest man on Earth but he is absolutely a FANTASTIC musician and ... get this he's Swedish! When he sings he sounds pretty darn American but then he talks and it's like "Oh what the deuce....?" One of my favourite songs of his is "King of Spain" .. give it a listen. Pretty good stuff.
So ends post #1 about the six week hiatus I took from the blog. The food that made me gain the weight I lost will be next!
