About 2 years ago my best friend Molly and I went to a Hippo Campus show in Chicago. We didn’t even know who the opening band was until I heard them play their last song and realized it had been on my favorites playlist for a while! They’re music is fun and easy to listen to and they’re moving up in the music world and I hopefully will see them at some upcoming festivals

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.
