Caterday 002

I love music, but even more than that, I love sharing music.

I recently asked my brother’s girlfriend if she knew who Sarah Jaffe was…

she didn’t.

That had to change.

It prompted me to put together a playlist of my (current) favorite ladies in music.

Here’s to Cate.

Hello Spring

Los Vallejos :: Spring is Here

Happy Spring!

Here in Texas it doesn’t last long, but it sure is glorious.

Yesterday was a big day.

BIG DAY.

I brought tickets to see my favorite band of all time. I thought it was only appropriate to use their lyrics in today’s image.

“She is a flower and I am a flower and we are alone”

Adam Duritz is my one and only.

Countdown to Counting Crows is t-minus 132 days.

When I was little, my dad would let me stay up late and we would listen to August and Everything After over and over (while snacking on bbq chips and dr. pepper…only the best midnight snack.)

Adam Duritz is like the cool uncle I never had. Counting Crows started in 1990…the year I was born. Which means they have been around my ENTIRE life.

Seeing these guys is going to be so surreal.

Not familiar with their music? Here’s a playlist of my top favorites.

Enjoy!

Love,

Wife C

CV + CV :: Hashtag Showlife // ACL 2013

YOU GUYS.

Our ACL journey was totally rad. Mind if I tell you about it?

//

We are usually SXSW people, but this year we ventured to the infamous Austin City Limits.

The line up was just as hot as the temperatures outside. Well-known and underground artists gracing the same stages for 3 days of outdoor hippie bliss.

Our main attractions were HAIM (learn more about this sister trio in our AS feature), Grimes, Vampire Weekend, Arctic Monkeys and finally… 

We have loved Local Natives for years. Unfortunately, in the past each time an opportunity has presented itself to see them live… something has always gotten in our way.

Not this time!

LocNat

(excuse the cheesy thumbs up. I was clearly suffering from heat exhaustion + excitement)

These guys were totally rad and humble. It only deepened my appreciation for their music.

\

If you haven’t figured it out by now… I have a totally healthy obsession with these girls. HAIM has become a staple on my Spotify and the only vinyl I want to play.

You go girl

Grimes. What to say about Grimes? She’s not for the faint of heart or the severely dehydrated. So much dancing and spooky, funky, weird sounds all blended together by one blonde weirdo.

WE  LOVED IT.

If you’ve never been to ACL, it’s a massive festival spanning 3 days across Zilker Park in Austin. It’s difficult to see everyone you want to see and want to be in the front? Forget about it!

But it’s an experience worth having and we would recommend it to anyone!

Check back later for some ACL tips and tricks we picked up along the way.

There is always more to come.
