Tuney Tuesday: Young the Giant in Concert

Happy Tuesday everyone. Since I didn’t post a Music Monday yesterday, let’s call today Tuney Tuesday. My friend Brandon and I went and saw Young the Giant in concert last night, and they were so fun.

Dat lighting doe.

Dat lighting doe.

I blogged about Young the Giant last year in this post, so obviously I am a fan. I have wanted to see them in concert for a while, so back in December when I heard they were coming to Indianapolis, I made my mind up to go. Coincidentally, a few weeks later, the band tweeted something saying they would give away free tickets to one random person who retweeted them. Since I love the Internet and was already planning on going, I retweeted them, and ended up winning. It was really random and unexpected since I don’t usually win things, but I was pumped that my tickets were free, plus they tweeted at me congratulating my win (I’m kind of a big deal).

The show was at the Egyptian Room, which has proven to be my go-to place for concerts in Indy. My friend Sam has seen Young the Giant before and told me that they were great live, and they were. They had really cool purple and yellow lights going the whole time, and the lead singer danced and grooved throughout the whole show. He danced a bit each time before he sang, so it kind of looked like he was working the notes through his whole body; it was cool. Also, one of the guitar players bopped around the stage the whole time, which was fun. They were all so into what they were playing and clearly enjoyed it. They also sounded fantastic! Probably even better than on their CDs. I would definitely see them again, and one hundred percent recommend their show to anyone who is a fan.

Have a great rest of the night, and thanks for reading :)

Get Involved

Happy Tuesday to all, welcome back to school, and welcome back to this blog! Since I kept up with a blog over the summer and also wrote for a site called U lala, I will waste no time telling you about my time away from being a Butler blogger. Let’s dive right into Butler stuff, yeah?

Since the school year is relatively fresh and most clubs and organizations are just starting up with meetings and events, and there is just a lot of stuff going on in general, I thought I’d tell you about all of the things I’m involved in, just in case you want to be involved too.

1. Free concert and free food on Thursday. I’m involved with Program Board’s Coffeehouse, which is an organization that provides free concerts in Starbucks throughout the year. The first one is this Thursday at 7 p.m. and features Butler’s own Coyote Armada. I blogged about them here last semester, and they are super great. I’m a huge fan.

2. Celebrate peace on Friday. Come out this Friday at noon to celebrate Butler’s new Peace Pole, right off the Starbucks patio. There will be music, sandwiches, peace buttons, and a chance to reflect on the peace pole in 16 languages. More info on that herehispic

3. Football game on Saturday. I am on the dance team and will be dancing at the football game this Saturday at 6:00 p.m. Come see the dance team, as well as the Butler football team. Yeah, school spirit, yeah!

4. Join the Visual Arts Student Organization. Also known as VASO, this organization is essentially Butler’s art club. All majors are welcome and no artistic experience is necessary. We will be having a callout meeting on Wednesday the 25th at 7:30 p.m. in Jordan 183. Come art with us!

5. Join Demia. Demia is Butler’s feminist organization on campus. We meet every Monday at 8 p.m. in Jordan 225. We are currently discussing events for Good Sex is Consensual Week at the end of the month. Just show up one week if you wanna join!

6. Join Alliance. Alliance is Butler’s LGBTQ/ gay-straight alliance organization. All are welcome, regardless of sexual orientation. Talk of having a gay pride parade was brought up at the last meeting, as well as planning the drag show Halloween event Alliance hosts every year. Email alliance@butler.edu if you want to get involved.

7. Read Archives. Archives is the ever-so-lovely humor magazine on campus. I write and photograph for it, so you should definitely check it out. Everyone on staff is super funny and interesting and I know you’ll love it. We will be passing out copies of the magazine fo free outside Starbucks at the end of the month. 319421_413723962012329_1292098326_n

8. Read U lala. As I mentioned above, I contribute to a site called U-la-la.com. U lala is a fashion and lifestyle blog created for college women. The site is all about positive, inspirational content, and each school has a branch. I obviously write for the Butler branch, but you should most certainly check out the other school’s stuff while you’re over there.

That is enough shameless self promotion for one post and I kind of hate myself now. Comment or contact me in some way if you want to get involved in anything listed above/if you have any questions.

As always, thanks for reading and have a great week :)

Music Monday: Ed Sheeran in Concert

Happy Music Monday, friends! As I mentioned in my video from Friday, I saw Ed Sheeran this weekend. I have mentioned Ed Sheeran many a times before in my blog, so obviously I am a big fan. The concert was stupendous and I already want to see him again.

Ed Sheeran, being spectacular.

He had two openers: Foy Vance and the Rizzle Kicks. Foy Vance was from Ireland, and he reminded me a bit of James Morrison. He had a very soulful voice and I really enjoyed his music. Rizzle Kicks, a hip hop duo from Brighton, England, came on next. I don’t usually like rap music too much, but I loved these guys. They were super fun, and their song “Mama Do the Hump” was incredibly catchy.

Ed Sheeran came on shortly after and he was fanfrickintastic! He has an incredibly flawless voice and sings like an angel, but he can also rock out a bit. When he was singing “You Need Me Man I Don’t Need You,” it turned into a ten minute song in which he broke out into “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore. I freaked the heck out when he started singing “Thrift Shop” because I am borderline obsessed with that song, making that my favorite moment of the concert. My other favorite moment was when he sang “Wake Me Up.” This is my favorite song by him, and he told the audience he wrote and recorded it when he was drunk, which kind of makes me like it more. Here’s a video I took of the beginning of “Wake Me Up,” and here is a link to a recording of when he sings Thrift Shop (it comes at the two minute mark!). The sound on my recording of that song was quite jank, so I thought a different video would do it justice.

If you ever get the chance to see Ed Sheeran live, for the love of God please do it!!! Have a fabulous week and thanks for reading :)
