Wedding Mix

I made an 8tracks mix with a few of the songs we played at our weddings. (art, Damien Hirst) While guests filtered in, we played the entirety of Davy Graham’s perfect album The Guitar Player. During the reception, we unleashed a monster, four hour playlist of love songs. For the long one, we enlisted the […]

Russian Circles

I cleansed myself of Saturday’s club beatz with some Sunday METAL. Fuzzy and fog-filled phone photos: Not a show I’d usually check out but I’m glad I did- it was great and super fun to see with Ian. Sandrider went right into a flurry of intense, high energy jams. And So I Watch You From […]

Deerhoof and of Montreal

I ended my week and a half of excess at the Showbox, sweating through my clothes on a spring-loaded dance floor. After some cocktails in the civil 21+ area, we got down on the floor for Deerhoof’s incredible set. They have such a cool and unpredictable sound- lovelovelove! I only wish they could’ve played a […]

The Raincoats

Gemsbok at the Victory

On Sunday, we caught Gemsbok’s first show! That’s Ajax singing- this was his birthday party btw- and that’s our friend Ian on guitar. The band played unbelievably well together and I’m pretty sure everyone there had a great time. (Haha, I had my earplugs in like a dweeb. It was even louder and more intense […]

Trentemøller at the Showbox

Where we were last Tuesday: Anders Trentemøller Josephine Philip and Mikael Simpson I had the best time! Trentemøller songs are really special- there’s quite a range in mood from track to track but somehow it all feels right in the same set. Dark, minimal numbers transition seamlessly into layered, dramatic ones. They ended the night […]

Wak Wak Island mix

I made another 8tracks mix. Incidentally, it’s full of downers but ones I happen to love. My perfect set of songs for staying up past bedtime. Stellar friend mixes: David’s ‘Wildly Fun Sounds of Mexico & South America‘ Eric’s ‘August Psychedelics‘
