Music Business

Now that I am living in a "normal" city where artists actually come through I am overwhelmed by all the shows creeping up that I want to see. The following shows are hitting the city of Salt Lake...

9/03 Ratatat

9/15 CSS/Tilly & the Wall

9/28 Sigur Ros (oh...wait...I'm already going to this show! Booyeah)

10/02 Cold War Kids

10/16 Fleet Foxes

10/18 The Mountain Goats

10/30 Girl Talk (I'm pretty sure I HAVE to go see him)

11/22 Coldplay (well this show is most certainly not happening but if only dreams did come true)

With the lack of money and a love for music I am at a crossroads. I can't seem to tell myself that seeing all these shows is really not going to happen.

While I may not have the money to enjoy what Salt Lake is serving to me on a silver platter, I, at home have made the music come to me. Lately I've been circulating


Lykke Li

Great Lake Swimmers

Cold War Kids


Camera Obscura

And I'm still amazed at how much joy I've found listening to


Bon Iver

I haven't gotten sick of them in the least bit and that thrills me

On my bedside table...

YAY!!!! Just got my September issue of my Paste magazine subscription. I love the free CD sampler with each issue. There is a great article about my 2008 favorite Bon Iver!
Have you seen the movie? It's great. I just purchased the book yesterday and I'm eager to read it after many rave reviews from friends.
A must read about the humanitarian spirit and power of education. Yup...I'm a sucker for this series. I'm more than half way through and I've loved every page. Thank you Stephenie Meyer.

Highlights: Shaw's Cove

Lemon Meringue Pie

Noah Ark Museum


Maggie beached it up with me for a week! So fun!

Shauna and I at the US Open. Motorcross was ill!

The lack of blog posts is due to the 10 day vacation in California and the now present family time in Utah. I had a great time in Southern California as always. My sister and bro-in-law are perfect hosts and I was glad my mom and my other niece and nephews could make the trip to play.
