The Ticketmaster four ticket limit is really a bummer for a family of five.

Janelle Monáe was very good. Glad to have seen her live.

Janelle Monae at The Armory, Minneapolis

Basically every radio station is playing Fast Car and We Didn’t Start the Fire. Welcome to 2023!

I love going to concerts. There’s one I want to see tonight. I have tickets to Janelle Monáe next Monday. I don’t love the 150 minutes of driving required and the sleep deprivation. I’m not planning to go tonight and I am weirdly unexcited for Monáe. This seems like it might be a key self discovery.

Wishing Steven Wilson had a mailing list in addition to an RSS news feed. (Unless I’m missing it?) I miss the short window on his deluxe edition preorders every time.

Yes, throwing it back.

TIL: Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) played drums on Dua Lipa’s Break My Heart.

Hey, y’all, I got my first Apple Music Discovery Station recommendation!

New Wong, y’all! Cory Wong - The Lucky One.

I just ran into Zara Larsson for the first time. My goodness, what pop music! Zara Larsson, Tove Lo, Robyn, and so on. The Swedes just don’t stop on the pop front, my goodness!

A smokey night at Brit Floyd.

I wrote a blog about City Pop. Perhaps you’re curious?

Happy new Ben Folds day!

That was pretty good. Hiatus Kaiyote.

Love this found footage. Pink Floyd 1975!

How weird am I? I own Pisces Iscariot, but not Siamese Dream. 🎵



Pleasantly surprised to see that Hiatus Kaiyote are coming to perform in the area in April. In the ticket line… 🎵
