My Top Artists this Week (Jul 28 - Aug 3)

(via my

I'm a little late, forgive me. But it's been hectic! I didn't forget, though. I'd obviously been listening to Four Year Strong last week, knowing that I would catch at least one of their sets this past weekend. I couldn't believe their crowd. The band itself was energetic and hard-hitting; but the audience made it. Every single person in that crowd was jumping and throwing up their fists and completely into it.

In related news, I played She & Him in the car ride from Milwaukee to Chicago and Matt became a fan! He said he even downloaded the album that night when we got to the hotel - when we were wipe-out exhausted. I feel accomplished.

So much going on this week, I still haven't gotten to the "new" music that I'm sure will be dusty and old by the time I get to it. I just like to be able to give my full attention to new artists, and sometimes I'm so groggy in the morning and so anxious in the evenings on my way home, I can't deal with new stuff. As you can probably tell, I do most of my listening via subway commute.

I'll be wrapping up the rest of my fun weekend in a bit!
