For about 5 years now, Vampire Weekend has been one of my favorite alternative bands. Their music is unlike any other. Their 3rd album blew up and also won a Grammy. Not to mention, they’ve put on some of the best shows that I’ve ever been to. Although meeting Rostam and Chris after the show wasnt all I thought it would be, it was still an amazing experience!

 

“I’ve travelled the world and I think you’re the shortest person I’ve met”

Last Friday I saw Joseph Arthur, an artist with a strong following of 200,00 people and over 8 million listens on his Spotify account. He is a well-known and respected artist in the music industry and plays with Pearl Jam regularly.

During his show at Drew’s it was only him an his guitar. He would make a beat by patting his guitar, then play over that and continuously add melodies through a song. I’ve never seen anything like it before!

He’s definitely a character and one of the nicest artists I’ve met so far!

Arguably one of the best songs in the category of New Folk/Alternative.

One of the best weekends of my life was on July 31st to August 2nd. My best friend and two other close friends got a hotel in downtown Chicago about a mile away from Grant Park. Not only was the environment amazing, but the lineup has been one of the best I’ve seen so far. Some of the artists that performed were Misterwives, Cold War Kids, Walk The Moon, Twenty One Pilots, Kid Cudi, Tame Impala, Of Monsters and Men, Alabama Shakes, The Weeknd, Sam Smith, Florence and the Machine, Metallica, and finally Paul McCartney. I cant wait to see what the lineup looks like for 2017!
