I'm a little late to this August playlist game because I'm still mentally and physically re-cooperating from HARD Summer last weekend. (And still washing glitter and confetti out of my hair - post to come).
Well, the August playlist is the COMPLETE opposite music style you'd find at HARD. I'd describe it as indie-groove? Here's some highlights:
- James Petralli of White Denim is in another band called Bop English, and they're awesome.
- A ton of bands on this playlist are going to be at Festival No. 6 in Wales, and it's making me SO excited for end of August / early September.
- Father John Misty has a new song! Stoked to hear it live at FYF.
- My groove of the summer is definitely Feel Like I Do by Disclosure ft. Al Green.
Since I've moved to LA, the majority of my money gets spent on brunch and shows. But hey, I'm not complaining.
Here, you can see all the gigs I got to see in the month of August alone. Plus some not shown: Grizfolk, Haim, Mac DeMarco, Real Estate, Blood Orange, and a few more I'm spacing on.
Arcade Fire was AMAZING live. If you get the chance to see them, do it. Don't even think twice.
The Strokes were wild. Getting kicked in the head by a crowd surfer(s) (multiple times) makes it a good show, right?
