Review of Hanson’s String Theory

This is probably less of a review and more of me going on about how awesome Hanson's Wolf Trap show was on Saturday night, so bear with me. String Theory at Wolf Trap was my fourth time seeing Hanson--a band I have unashamedly loved since I first heard Mmmbop on the radio as a kid.  Remember … Continue reading Review of Hanson’s String Theory

Ok Go – KOKO, London

I just had the best night of my life. I've been a fan of Ok Go since high school (oh god, over 10 years now) and have always wanted to see them live.  Every single time they would tour, I was in the wrong part of the world.  When they went to Louisville?  I was … Continue reading Ok Go – KOKO, London

If you were stranded on a deserted island…

Did you ever play that game as a kid?  “If you were stranded on a deserted island, what five (or ten or however many) things would you take with you?”  I know I did... and I did quite frequently!  (I was one bored kid!)  My friends and I pondered the question relentlessly and carefully, obsessing over what we’d really … Continue reading If you were stranded on a deserted island…

Meet me in the Middle – Hanson’s London Concert

  I’m pretty sure I’ve pointed this out in the past, but I’ll say it again (loud and proud):  I’m a Hanson fan and have been since I was 11.  My bedroom walls were plastered with posters ripped from teeny-bopper magazines; I had books, t-shirts and anything and everything I could get my hands on with their … Continue reading Meet me in the Middle – Hanson’s London Concert

Tell me, did the wind sweep you off your feet?

I don't know if I mentioned booking tickets a few months ago to see the band Train in concert here in London.  They've been one of my favorite bands since I was 15 or 16 and I'm a total fan-girl but I've never had the chance to see them live.  Last night was the concert, … Continue reading Tell me, did the wind sweep you off your feet?

Shout It Out – album review

Anyone who knows me knows that I've been a Hanson fan since the ripe old age of 11.  From "Mmmbop" to "If Only" to "Great Divide," I've remained a fan.  A few weeks ago, the group did a set of concerts titled "5 of 5" which they streamed live online.  The final night was a preview … Continue reading Shout It Out – album review

I am the walrus…

I can't honestly tell you when I realized I loved The Beatles.  I remember my Memom singing "All You Need Is Love" in the kitchen of their old house when I was little... it's actually one of my first memories--mostly because my grandmother was singing, which was (and is!) rare. My family typically listened to … Continue reading I am the walrus…
