Two free concerts in two days?  Yes please!

Concert #1:  Jack Johnson @ the Santa Monica Pier
Cleaned the beach Saturday morning and was rewarded with a free ticket to see Jack Johnson.  It’s sad to see so much trash littering our coast, most which could’ve easily been avoided.  The trash comes from litter traveling through the drain systems as far as 60 miles away from the ocean!  Definitely going to take the extra step to do my part in keeping the streets clean.  The concert itself was great.  It’s always a chill time listening to Jack, this time literally.  Standing on the pier on a windy night gets super cold, should’ve brought out the blankets.

Concert #2:  Janelle Monae @ The W Hollywood
Thanks to Erin for sending out the invites and to Belvedere for providing the liquid refreshments all night long.  If you haven’t heard of Janelle Monae, check her out!  Great performer with a soulful voice.  It was a short set, but still very fun.  The only thing I regret is not taking a picture of the gorgeous LA night skyline.  I blame it on the Belvedere.

Tightrope – Janelle Monae

One last note, Josh stumbled across a SICK remake of Jay-Z’s 99 Problems.  Hugo is the latest artist signed to Roc Nation, and his sound is clean, classic rock.  Can’t wait to see what the full album sounds like.

my heart can’t take any more cuteness

there are no words, only sight and music…

Zooey Deschenal and Joseph Gordon-Levitt join forces again to make this short film to the She & Him track called Why Do You Let Me Stay Here. needless to say, the bank dance is fantastically sweet.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
i’ve also updated the nifty orange juke box with the title track of their latest album, Hellogoodbye’s When We First Met.

enjoy.

i follow the “why save for tomorrow what you can do today” mantra.  hence, why procrastinate tomorrow when i can procrastinate today?  i suppose i’ll be kicking myself in the butt come moving day, but i just can’t bring myself to pack up all my belongings into stuffy old boxes.  would you want to be cooped up in a dusty box? i think not.

in the spirit of fighting for the freedom of my knick-knacks from cardboard imprisonment, i present you with some new tunes for your aural pleasure.  the audio tracks are on the left in the nifty box.net widget.  more info on the artists after the jump.
