Backstreet Boys – Don’t Go Breaking My Heart
I was completely prepared to hate this song, but it’s a total bop and I’m so into it. The only thing that gets me is that this song isn’t even relevant to them anymore. Aren’t they all in committed marriages with kids?! Whatever the case, I’m not spending too much time thinking about it and just added this to my Summer 2018 playlist.
17 May 2018
It’s BACK! I was starting to worry that it would never return, but it looks like the festival has come up from the dead in full force – just not in the same location that we have always known it for. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but we heard that Treasure Island Music Festival had to exit Treasure Island mainly due to all of the construction work that is being done. I was just last on the island a few months ago and it really did seem like work was being done all over the place. It’s a quiet part of the city and while there are a handful of establishments and scattered activities, it almost felt like the festival itself had outgrown the location mutually around the same time. Treasure Island will bring attention to Oakland in 2018 – a place that I don’t get out to enough. At first glance, the lineup is decent. A little something for everyone, but it’s still not a stunner like the lineup for Outside Lands. I really would love to see the festival in its new setting, but I just can’t confirm that it’s something that we’ll attend this year. What does everyone else think? Have you all loved Treasure Island since the beginning? How do we feel about it moving to Oakland?
