Sometimes wishes do come true 

Status

I got tickets to see Nathaniel Rateliff & the Nightsweats and Kings of Leon play together at Hollywood Casino Amphitheater in Tinley Park on August 12. Wishes do come true! Two of my favorite bands playing at the same venue 🤘🤓

The last two times I bought tickets to see KOL, the shows were cancelled. Please, if there is a God, don’t let them cancel the kick-off show of their new tour! 

I think of the time I saw Nathaniel Rateliff at Chicago Theatre and was shocked by how close my seats turned out to be. It’s not the 4 th row, but 28th row is still pretty darn good! 

August can’t get here fast enough, I have so many concerts I am looking forward to seeing! Not to mention Lollapalooza! It’s hard to contain the excitement 😀

David Bowie’s ★

Standard

Read Rolling Stone’s article:  The Inside Story of David Bowie’s Stunning New Album, ‘Blackstar’

This article might give you chills after this morning’s news that David Bowie has passed away after battling cancer for 18 months. This is striking news for all of us. I don’t think anyone except for his family and friends knew of his illness. BBC reports that he died peacefully at home beside his family.

★ was released on Friday, 1/8, David Bowie’s 69th Birthday. Little did we all know, it was a subtle, yet powerful goodbye to us all. With lyrics alluding to his fate: Look up here, I’m in heaven, I’ve got scars that can’t be seen, I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen, Everybody knows me now.

I keep thinking back to the David Bowie Is exhibit at the MCA last year and am so grateful to say that I experienced David Bowie Is.

David Bowie was a living legend, hero and music genius. He paved the way for a new genre of music, and changed the world. He opened doors for people afraid to be themselves and showed that its OK to be different.

His life will always be remembered and celebrated. Check out the ★ album and other Bowie albums on iTunes

 

Music Rx

Standard

I am a huge advocate for healing with music and I love even more that I have found an organization that believes so too. My Music RX is a charitable organization bringing joy and music to a pediatric hospital near you.

My Music RX has a bright, fun, modern website that is easy to use, and has tons of kid-friendly content. I wouldn’t say it’s just for kids though, I think all ages would enjoy their music, message and purpose.
