What We’re Listening to This Weekend:

Okay, so we’ve actually been listening to this album for two weeks straight. If you’ve been following me across all social media platforms, then you know that I’ve been anticipating this album since before the year even started. I first heard Khalid’s “Location” while watching a choreography piece. Soon after that, my radar was turned on for every single release he had. I couldn’t help, but be impressed by the 19-year old who I knew was just going to blow up. Usually, when we’re doing an album review of some sort, I share with you my favorite songs, but if I’m being super honest here – every song is a gem. Listen to it from start to finish starting with “American Teen” because I think in this order, it really sets you up to get to know who Khalid truly is. Each song goes back and forth between varying tempos and beats as if there’s not a whole lot of consistency. But it’s actually perfect. Every song left me wanting more and when I got to “Shot Down,” which is my favorite song off of the album, I didn’t want it to end. It’s amazing how quickly time passes when you’re listening to this album all the way through.

The other day, I was checking out his tour dates and noticed that Washington State University had booked him for a couple weeks from now. *applause* Whoever is running their events programming there knew what they were doing and it’s likely they booked this nearly six months ago, which means even then they were able to predict how successful Khalid was going to be. Those students are very lucky. This really made me miss what I used to do. I’m so excited for Khalid and can’t wait to follow along on his journey like the little fan girl that I am currently.

Capitol Hill Block Party 2017 Lineup

This is a great lineup, but secondly – how great are the colors being used for this year’s festival?! Designgasm… I just made that word up. I hope that’s okay. As most of you know, Capitol Hill Block Party has always been very near and dear to my heart and this lineup looks SO good. Should we fly home for it? Answer y/n.
