Memorial Day Weekend Travel Diary

PEDAL WORKS

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of visiting some friends in Boston, MA. While I am unfortunately still in my last few days of my junior year of college, my friends in Boston have been finished with their year for the past few weeks at Berklee College of Music.

After discovering that Sia would be performing at a local festival, I knew I had to fly out to see her perform and visit some old friends. I hadn’t visited Boston since December 2014 and jumped at the chance for this weekend getaway, considering the fact that Boston is one of my favorite cities and Sia performing at a festival is a rarity. Read on for some of the highlights of my trip:

Met Gala 2016

The 2016 Met Gala brought a lot of interesting outfit choices: the good, the bad, and the plain old ugly. This year’s theme was “Fashion in the Age of Technology,” a theme that many people decided to stray away from (Blake Lively, you look beautiful, but where is your loyalty to themes?!)

20 Acts You Need to See This Year at Lollapalooza

We’re all adults here, so we can admit that everyone is going to have their own opinion in regards to whether or not this year’s Lollapalooza lineup is good or not. That’s fair. Music is subjective and someone that I may despise may be a great fit for someone else. That’s why it’s so exciting! With that being said, I think that it’s easy to agree that the lineup is quite diverse in regards to genre.

Spring Break Travel Diary

PEDAL WORKS-3

Last Thursday, I flew to Nashville, Tennessee to spend a few days with my friend, Taylor, from college. She’s from Nashville so I flew home with her for the weekend and we had a great time exploring the city. I’ve been to Nashville twice before this trip, but this visit was particularly fun because we didn’t do all the touristy things: I didn’t even go down Broadway street at all.

16 Artists to Watch in 2016

Something that I always find super exciting about the start of a new year is all of the new music that will follow! Some may wonder how I manage to find these artists, and the answer is SPOTIFY! I’m definitely not the best human being for using the service, considering these artists barely get paid for any of the streams. But I can’t be too hard on myself, for I am in college and that just comes with being somewhat broke all of the time. Hopefully these musicians will forgive me since I’m giving them some free promo on my blog.

I compiled a list of 16 musicians that I’ve really been into lately. Read on to find out more!

Oscar 2016: Who Won and Who Wore What

Oscar Sunday: A night that many of us pop culture enthusiasts will stay up late for. While many Americans plan one Sunday a year around something very  much different (The Superbowl), the rest of us clear our schedule for this annual event. I can’t say that I enjoy The Oscars more than The Grammys, but this year’s Oscars was definitely much more bearable to watch than the Grammys.
