so if you live in erie and want to do shit this weekend

....you have NO shortage of options. here's a list:

- Heritage Days in Waterford: blah blah lame boring. I went to this last year and not even the funnelcake could redeem it for me. seeing as funnelcake is something I have once a year which should be similar to having a multiple orgasm, to have this disappoint me was soul-crushing. I guess if you're really into local history, which I am not: http://www.waterfordheritagedays.com/

- Roar On the Shore: Warrant (yes, THAT Warrant!) will be playing a show in Perry Square tomorrow night as part of the celebration. you may have however missed Bret Michaels, though. tear. oh my god, we were driving home the other night, three blocks from my house there were people camping out in their front yards and drinking beer and sitting in lawnchairs. THEY WERE WAITING TO CATCH A GLIMPSE OF BRET MICHAELS WHEN HE DROVE BY ON HIS MOTORCYCLE, HOLY SHIT, I HATE THIS PLACE. http://www.roarontheshore.com/

- Behold Scandinavia!: if you feel like making the small drive out to Jamestown and paying $8 admission and really love Sweden/Norway/maybe even FINLAND (hahaha, though not technically Scandinavia, I still lump it in there!) this is the event for you. I was so set on going too but I can't. :( I am impressed though that SUNY Jamestown has a Scandinavian Studies program. it makes me regret not going there. I could have studied in Sweden!

I totally envy you for going because I want to behold Scandinavia. someday. :(

- I am sure there's other stuff happening. WHAT, WHAT, WHAT. well, make your own fun and have a Staycation if that doesn't interest you.


I LOVE STAYCATIONS!!!!


today was also the worst day of work I've ever had. my pants fell down (to my ankles no less), I got stuck in a rainstorm, I got hit in the head with a door and I had to pick up an animal skull with what I believe to be rotting flesh on it.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
