You don’t need to explain if everything’s changed, just know I’m just like you

15 Jun

I’ve posted a few times about this band because I simply cannot get enough.  Grouplove has been on my musical radar ever since I’ve had the amazing pleasure of seeing them live over a year ago.  Since then, I’ve seen them three times and I can’t wait to see them again.  I was beyond thrilled when they were announced to take the stage at our beloved BFD this year.  Of course I was snapping photos and dancing at the same time.  They might not be technically the best photographs for the music world but I couldn’t resist rocking out to one of my favorites 🙂

Love this dress.  Supposedly, Hannah (pictured above) is from the bay area!

Live105 as always bringing the good stuff.

Happy Friday everybody and have a great weekend!  Make sure you tell your dad that you love them this weekend and celebrate Father’s Day if you can 🙂

This band hasn’t even finished their latest album, Continued Silence, and they are already on fire.  The Las Vegas rockers have made an enormous impact with this EP and are hustling to finish it before they go on tour this fall with AWOLNATION.  Definitely check them out!  Here are some of the photos I snapped of them this past weekend.  It’s almost Friday!

Everyone sings!

Playing around with different focal points.

A man of many talents!

Fans were out in full support, it was so great to see!

I love these shots.

So awesome.  They were so grateful for the turn out and stayed to sign things and take photos with anyone who wanted to meet them.

Music lovers come together

This weekend is Live105’s annual BFD concert and I couldn’t be more excited!  It’s my absolute favorite event of the year and the Live105 crew is such an amazing team of people, I feel so proud and lucky to get to work with them.  I’ll be shooting photos and enjoying all the good tunes the day has to offer. There is a lot of local talent this year and definitely some ‘do not miss this’ artists.  Below is the line-up so if you’re in the area don’t miss out on this incredible music festival!

Stand outs that I’m looking forward to are Of Monsters and Men, Geographer, Walk the Moon, Dragonette, Young Science, the Naked and Famous, Silversun Pickups and so many more!

Mavericks Festival, the Expendables, and Sunshine

2 Apr

This past Saturday, Mavericks held an event to honor the massive wave event that usually has already happened by this time of year.  However, they could not ever lock down a day to get the surfers to charge for a contest.  There were still surfers who I’m sure were out there catching waves this past winter but there wasn’t an actual contest held.  Surprisingly, we had some sun and a nice day of music and friends.  It was down pouring everywhere else but somehow along the Hwy1 coast line, we had some of the most beautiful weather.

Kite boarders everywhere!

The Expendables playing.

This is just hilarious.

Little kids just loving the music : )

Cute gamers 🙂

GoPro was also there giving out a few GoPros!  Pretty awesome.

Female Mavericks surfer!

They had a skate set up, too!

I love my friends.

The line up is here!

I will NOT miss this year.  Mission: Music, Photos, Friends.

Alice 97.3’s Now and Zen Festival

27 Sep

This past weekend my work held another fun event, Alice’s Now and Zen Festival in Golden Gate Park.  I was actually contemplating being boring and not going because it started to rain a little bit and the festival was outside.  Then I came to my senses and realized I’m never one to turn down live music with good people.  Especially since it was a work event, we were lucky enough to enjoy free food, drinks, and a great view right next to the stage.  Now some of you really probably think I’m crazy for almost not going.  Alice’s promotion’s department does such an amazing job of creating polished, family and pet friendly events.  I shot some photos to share in case you missed out!

Michelle Branch was the first act to go on that I saw.  Before her there were two other acts, Thriving Ivory and Eoin Harrington (both originally from the San Francisco area).

I have to be honest she didn’t sound too great.  However, I have a soft spot for her because my high school close friend and I would blast her CD and sing at the top of our lungs.  We were big Michelle Branch fans and proud about it.  We even got our parents to sign us out of school so that we could go into the city to one of her shows (and Jason Mraz haha we were classic back then).  She did play a ton of her old hits too.  Beyond being a young fan back in the day, I now am a HUGE fan of this outfit!  Couldn’t be any cuter of an outfit for the singer/songwriter.

I also LOVE her classic white and gold guitars.  I’m no fashionista but if I had a say, her outfit wins so far for best fall threads.

So many cute dogs out and about enjoying the music as well.

Chelsea and Ian at Now and Zen

Sarah and Vinnie from the morning show then came out with Uzette, Icky, and Jamie (from the show) to chat with the crowd and get them excited for the Goo Goo Dolls.  They are such an entertaining morning show.  I really enjoy listening to them in the mornings and I’m not saying that because I work for the same station.  I genuinely think they are very funny!

Another dog enjoying the show.  I’m sorry, I’m such a huge animal lover I can’t help but photograph them 🙂

Another cute thing I liked at this show… were these cute snow hats/mittens!  At the end of the long tails were pockets to put your hands.  So great for the snow and I love seeing kids out and about enjoying a nice outdoor concert.

Then the Goo Goo Dolls hit the stage and I have to admit they still sound good!  They have way more recognizable songs than you’d think.

He rocked it out for an older musician.

The other Goo Goo Dolls singer.

One of my favorite parts of the performance (as cheesy as it sounds) was when they release a ton of black balloons into the audience for, you guessed it, Black Balloon.  One of their classic throw backs.

The client/employee area.  The marketing department always decorates the event so cute and practical!  There was coverage from rain and/or sun.  The sun did come out and it turned out to be a beautiful day.

The crowd.

Ian and I : )

Here are my two favorite songs from the day.

Goo Goo Dolls throwback “Broadway”

It reminds me of a ski road trip I took with my dad to Utah when I was in middle school.  We had such a great time and jammed to this CD on the way there.  He would have chosen News/talk the entire time but I was able to play my Goo Goo Dolls CD for part of it.

Also, I do have to admit I like the produced version of Michelle Branch’s new single “Loud Music.”

Enjoy and Happy Tuesday everybody!
