Rock Stars Before and After a Performance

When I was more involved with music back in the day, I was used to seeing this sweaty transformation as seen above. It’s funny because you go into a show and you’re standing next to a gaggle of groupies oggling the musicians – the whole time I’m just thinking – seriously, just wait until you see them afterwards. It ain’t pretty. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed seeing this photo series entitled “Before/After” done by music photographer Brandon Anderson. I also think it’s quite interesting to see the comparison of both a soft and hard look that is visible in the before and after shots. In the before, the musicians look calm and at ease with themselves while the after shots show the musicians looking very hard and rugged.

Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj – Bang Bang (Jayesslee cover)

Kevin got me into these two a long long time ago. I can’t believe they both have kids now! This was too adorable.

Ariana Grande for Marie Claire

While I’m very excited to see Ariana Grande in concert, I’m pretty disappointed to hear that she is such a diva in person and especially to her fans! It’s such a bummer. I would never pay nearly $500 for her meet-and-greet package, but I remember what it was like to idolize a young pop star when I was a kid and having parents that will go to great lengths to make you a happy kid – including my father who accompanied me to my first concert at age 7. Spice Girls. They’re really a girl group… for everyone.

7 Months From Now…

It has been years since I’ve gone to a concert that was such a huge production, but I was going to go the distance for Ariana Grande! I went as far as downloading some random app called “Fahlo,” and becoming a member of her fan club in order to buy presale tickets for a concert that won’t even happy until April. Additionally, because I was purchasing through presale, I had to pay an additional fee that gained me points on “Fahlo” – an app that I don’t care about at all. An additional $25! WHAT.

It’s worth it, I think. I have decent seats and I’m not going to be on the floor, which means that my vision of the stage isn’t going to suck that badly. I am so excited. ARIANA GRANDE LATTE!

Mike Song | “TROUBLE” by Jose James (Funk LeBlanc Remix)

I could honestly spend hours watching choreography videos from former Kaba Modern members.  Mike Song and Yuri Tag are still filming videos for them and I’m obsessed. I’ve actually been looking into dancing again up in the city and am now just seeking a place that I can become a regular at. I’m pretty scrappy though so I think it will be light years until I actually feel okay enough to post something up. I hadn’t heard this track before, but I love both this version and the original. Mike Song did a great job with the choreography.

MTV’s “No Cameras Allowed”

I’m totally interested in watching this. MTV just made a documentary about a guy who has been sneaking into major music festivals and capturing his entire experience. You can watch the full documentary here. And I’ll probably watch this when I have time next!

Odesza – How Did I Get Here

It’s an oldie, but a goodie! A certain someone has been playing this song in the car recently so imagine my surprise when I discovered this was a part of their 2012 album! Feels like it just came out in 2014.

Also, happy Friday ya’ll and our 1,000th “Song of the Day” post. I cannot believe we’ve shared 1,000 songs on Yow Yow! This also doesn’t include the many albums we’ve talked about, remixes of the day, and music videos of the day type posts. Werk.

Remix of the Day

When I first heard that Ariana Grande was collaborating with Cashmere Cat on our album for “Be My Baby,” I already predicted that it was going to be a hit. In fact, after hearing the song once, it was enough for me to have it on repeat for a week before the album even came out. It was a well-produced song, but for those who are huge fans of Cashmere Cat, it didn’t really “sound” like Cashmere Cat which is probably why he released this new version of the track today.

This sounds about  right. I actually just like Ariana’s music in general so I like both and don’t prefer one over the other.

Cover of the Day // In Memory of Simone Battle

It was announced this morning that Simone Battle who was 25 died of an apparent suicide. She was a very young and talented singer who was part of the GRL group and had competed and rose to fame on the singing reality show X Factor. Our prayers are with Simone’s friends and family. I had actually never watched X Factor around that time, but found this video of her covering Drake’s “Take Care” which was done amazingly.

We Back In It, Hawks!

All this week, I couldn’t wait for Thursday because that meant the first game of the season for our Seattle Seahawks! It was a great win and a great start to what is about to be an amazing season! Seattle looked gorgeous today and I’m really looking forward to being back there in less than a week. Today’s first game also meant a rivalry between me and a coworker. I’m very lucky that Seattle came out on top because being in 49’er territory, I probably would have never heard the end of it!

Want to hear something else that was brutal? We gathered for the game today at 5:30 and the sound in our cafe wasn’t working so we watched the entire first half of the game in silence. Then at halftime, we all rushed home to our respective homes and a television with sound.

Because of this technical difficulty, it meant I had to miss not only Pharrell’s performance at the pre-show, but Ariana Grande’s performance of the national anthem! Where can I get a bedazzled jersey like that? Amazing.
