Tune In - June 13, 2016
Hey y'all!As some of y'all know, I'm headed to my first-ever music festival this weekend (something distinctly not bookish, but still a lot of fun.) It's even better because I get to see my Wilmington people.Music festivals are probably made for people a lot more less anxious than I am. I logically know that it's perfectly okay to go in not knowing every artist, but I feel like I'll enjoy it more if I brush up on the people going. So I made this massive playlist and I've been listening to it for about a month, hoping that I'll subliminally absorb some of the lyrics. (I'm a dork, okay.)I thought it would be interesting to post this as my "before" picture, and see what actually happens. Will I actually get to see the bands I like, or will I wander off to new ones? Which songs will I end up listening to over and over for two weeks afterwards?Isn't that lineup insane? Anyways, I'm really looking forward to a lot of the people on here. Elle King is my queen, Hippie Sabotage is supposed to be amazing in concert, and I'm going through a hardcore obsession with Oh Wonder and Jeremy Loops. I could go on about Gallant and Of Monsters and Men and Fetty Wap and Nathaniel Ratecliff and the Night Sweats but I digress.
As I said, I've been obsessively listening to my Grace Takes Firefly playlist. It's essentially a lot of the setlists for people I'd like to see. Those of you who read this regularly also know that I don't often do mood playlists, but I do monthly ones - because I bounce around often enough to never really commit to certain songs. My June one has some overlap with my Firefly one, but I still really enjoy it.
