Nothing But Thieves Concert!

My roommate, Sam, and I have been planning to go to this concert since the day that it was announced. We found the band Nothing But Thieves together and therefore have an unspoken bond over them. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited we were about getting a chance to support a smaller band we absolutely love. It was a rather small show, which is easily my favorite kind of show. We got to chill, buy some merch, and still end up at the barricade.

We hadn’t heard of the opening act, but we managed to find their EP and I can honestly say that their EP doesn’t do The Wrecks justice. They were absolutely amazing and had the best vibes ever. Normally I find opening acts forgettable, but they got the crowd super hyped and were insanely rad. We even got to meet them after the show (all of those photos turned out terribly, but it was still a awesome!) and they are seriously the sweetest guys. If I don’t heard more from them and about them in the future it’ll be a tragedy. I mean, they dressed up for Halloween, that’s dedication, my friends.

Then we got to see Nothing But Thieves, who are easily some of the most talented people I’ve heard music from in a long time. Their lead singer has a vocal range people would kill for, and the entire band way too talented to be so unknown. When their lead singer heard us singing along with the lyrics, I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone smile so big. It was an amazing experience and I wish I could go back and do it all again.

After the show Sam and I got a chance to hang out with the tour photographer and have a great conversation. It was definitely a much needed night of fun and excitement and I hope we get the chance to go to more shows like this in the future. It’s the best night I’ve had in a long time.

If you want to check out Nothing But Thieves or The Wrecks, which I would highly recommend doing, their stuff can be found on Spotify and they both have awesome websites with links to everything you could want to know:

Do yourself a favor and go listen to them. It’s worth it.

 

A Trip to the Etowah Indian Mounds!

This semester I had a couple days off for a fall break, and after not seeing my nephew or family at all since June, I decided to spent it with them and some friends I haven’t seen in even longer! During this same time my family was planning on visiting the Indian Mounds near our little town and they were nice enough to invite me along. It’s not very often, if ever, that we get a chance to do things as a family, so I was pretty excited.

I thought I would do a throwback to the video blog type things I’ve had so much fun making in the past for this trip. It mostly features my nephew, but I love him, so it’s totally okay.

Where Have I Been in September?

September has been by far the busiest month I’ve had this year. Between all my classes, midterms, and so much more with work and life, I have been constantly on the go. I’m hoping that October will bring some relaxation my way, but if things go as planned, then I’m in for some not so relaxing adventures.

Right now, I have some stuff planned for October, and some posts already in the works (that is if things pan out, which they always seem up in the air until the last second when it comes to my life). I’m working on getting another job so I can possibly get a place of my own next year, I’m changing up my major just a little bit, and I’ve been working on my post-college plan with the help of some amazing people.

I’m excited (and a little nervous) for what’s in store for October and, really, just the rest of this year in general. In the meantime, I’m gonna listen to Bon Iver’s new album and continue my routine of work, school, gym, and sleep. You should be hearing from me soon! Between then and now, however, please enjoy this cat video (the best part is about 50 seconds in, trust me).
