It's No Good!
I know it has been a while since our last installment... but for those of you who know me I have not been home much the last two months...  So what have I been doing ? Going to concerts of course.  In may the beautiful Karla and I started May  off by going with me to see Christina Perri at the House of Blues ! ( thanks to Jessie Elliott!!)   This is second time I have had the chance to see Christian Perri in concert. She is so much fun to see. We even got a chance to witness a proposal happen on stage. Someone in my group may have gotten  a little misty eyed ( not me ... KARLA!!)   
Next was The Fray! So my concert partner in crime Jess had the chance to go to the meet and greet at the Vegas show! It was awkward  and amazing.  Isaac made a funny comment about how he always feels strange about what to say at these things trying to ease some of the "nerves" we had a fun laugh. Next Joe noticed my music note tattoo and asked if it was a particular song. When I replied it wasn't a specific song he and Isaac began humming a tune trying to make up a song. We chatted about Isaac's new baby and they took a picture with us.  I love how  funny this band is,  they are so gracious . I love when artists don't take themselves to seriously. Next was the shows... two weekends in a row.. Once here and the following weekend at the Red Rocks in Colorado.. I will say the Vegas show was fantastic , but nothing compares to seeing anyone at the Red Rocks. Not to mention it's the Fray's hometown.  You will never hear me say a bad thing about Red Rocks venue. It's beautiful my absolute favorite place to see a show..even if it rains EVERYTIME I come for one!!! Thank you so much to Jess Nate, Rhi, and Brad for sitting in the rain with me. 
Last concert installment ... Gavin Degraw and Matt Nathonson with the lovely Suzanne!  It was at the Mandalay Bay Beach. Matt Nathonson was equal parts talent and humor. The vibe was so much fun. Gavin Degraw, after all these years I still adore his piano fuelled pop songs makes me miss One Tree Hill. Honorable mention to Suzanne for being the person I blame for my concert love... she took me to my very first concert many many moons ago...
So here is your next mix.. It's No Good . I was inspired by the feeling of summer . This is the first CD mix in a long time where I've made it, lived with it, mailed it out , and am still listening to it now. It just feels like a soundtrack to my summer. I hope you feel the same about it.  Special mentions come for Ok Honey who we saw open for The Fray . Also somehow Depeche Mode made it on the mix, it was not intentional but somehow a song long past it's prime still makes sense blended in with these new one. Thanks to Jess who requested we add a song by Ingrid Michelson , her songs are always hidden gems . I am very much in love with Ed Sheeran's new album and found a special song that makes me smile .. can anyone say thank you Snow Patrol.   Until next time.. keep your ears open and feel free to sent out any request or themes you might want to hear on upcoming mixes...
