I am sad but I also want to celebrate something about Prince.
You know what Prince taught me?
Prince taught me that it’s OK to be weird. It’s OK to look different. It’s OK to be myself.
I remember seeing Prince for the first time and was very confused about his purple outfit. But this music drew me in so much that I didn’t care. I don’t think Prince cared either what I thought about him.
I can’t put it into words right now. Maybe I will have time later. But for now, I have this:
And we can relive the time I saw him in concert in 2011 here.
Her new album drops on my birthday! I know what I want. Thanks!!!!
“The last time I did a show in L.A., it was at the Hotel Cafe in front of 30 people!”
That was the line that made last night’s show with Rachel Platten so special. During last night’s show, Rachel shared about how four years ago she played at this small little venue. I know about that show. I was there! She would then say that she was blown away with the crowd at the El Rey, knowing that her dream has come true to perform here.
This was the magic of the show. Rachel remain humbled and blessed, sharing her journey from small venues to big international stardom. Even though she no longer has the van, and has more people in her band, she still remains as the sweetheart she was when she started. It was great to see her perform live again on the big stage. The light show was dope and the excitement from the crowd, singing along to every word was awesome.

This was the third time seeing The Killers but never was I this close. Never have I sung to every single song with everyone. Never was it this amazing. Oh baby!!!!
I want to go into full detail about this past weekend’s trip but I just don’t have the energy and effort to type it all out. I don’t even have the effort to give you the details on how it all went down.
But I will tell you this. The show was a Beatles’ fans’ dream come true. If you love the band like I do and love great storytelling, then this was for you. I got teary eyed for several songs and performances and the excitement and visual pleasure of the performers was simply amazing! I am still speechless that I finally got to see this after all these years!
I am so lucky!
I just saw Best Coast last night. I had a great weekend and they were the cherry on top. I am speechless at how wonderful Bethany was and how great they sounded live. I had feared that the show would be a downer since some people have complained about Beth’s performances. But since this was the last show of the tour, she was energized and was exciting to watch!
