This past weekend, my husband, Casey, and I made a trip down to White Lake, SD for my dad's wedding. Like most road trips, we took turns choosing the music, giving a unique soundtrack to the fourteen-hour round-trip drive. I love traveling, getting out on the road, seeing what adventure awaits. Even if it's to a place I've already been, I've visited a million times, there's freedom in driving down an open road, a whole world out there ready to be explored.
*I wasn't able to make it to his performance at the Fargo Theatre last night, but I had a front-row seat to the live stream, and it was fantastically amazing. I'm a patient woman, Mr. White, and I'm sure I'll see you in the future when you've decided to start performing again.
I need three pours just to
Walk through the door
Be civil and not make a scene
The only thing dripping is contempt as she
Hands me a box from the pharmacy
*Yes, that's one Mr. David Bazan on vocals. LOVE.
*That's his wife in the video with him, in case you need to excuse away your tears as you listen.
Rock the Casbah
*This one's just a classic.
*The phrase "Hey Ladies" as sung in this song gets stuck in my head quite frequently. I have no idea why.
Monsters of Folk
*I've been a fan of this album since its release, but hadn't viewed the video until recently. It's wonderful.
Run the Jewels
Blockbuster Night Part I
*Admittedly, I wouldn't know of Run the Jewels were it not for my husband, but I can't seem to stop listening to them.
Peter and Jenny Lee
*I've had the privilege of seeing Del Barber perform at a house show, and he spent almost as much time telling stories as he did singing. As you can imagine, I'm a pretty big fan of the combination.
