SXSW Attendees – Don’t Miss This Band

On one hand, I don’t even want to post about this band because I don’t want their shows to be all crowded. And I kinda want to keep them to myself.

On the other hand, they are awesome and I want them to be recognized for being so great, and I also want to share with you.

So. This band. Called NO. From Echo Park. Is Amazing.

I have liked them for awhile (a couple of years?) Last year, Josh and I were lucky enough to go see them at SXSW. It was a small venue, and we were right up front. The band put on an intense performance, and afterward the lead singer came into the audience and wound up giving me a hug. A sweaty hug, but I’m not complaining. Still one of the best things to happen to me at SXSW ever.

This year they are playing the Day Stage in the Convention Center and also a performance at Swan Dive on Wednesday night. If you aren’t in Austin, or just can’t make it out.. you can still hear their songs because they just released their newest album! It is fantastic. Josh bought it right away, and we’ve been listening to it for the last couple of weeks.

I’m on Pinterest

I’m on Pinterest.

I try to pin things that I will enjoy later. That if I scroll back through of all the things I’ve pinned, I’ll still be inspired, will still enjoy looking at those things.

I was scrolling back through what I’ve pinned over the last couple of years, and I wanted to share with you a few of my favorites:

Cuddles, they are appreciated.

I really can totally see myself doing this. If I had a cat.

Tennis matches fun.

Summer, how I love thee.

Super-cute bear toast face!

Seriously, look at this cheese.

Flowers, oh gorgeous flowers.
