On what would have been Record Store Day, 4/18 I posted a video in our Instagram stories featuring some favorite records from my home collection, particularly to spark joy! #mariekondo, And celebrate my top five record shops from all the places I’ve called home. ICYMI, here’s links to those record shops – all of which are open online! + Instagram post and the playlist. See you all on the rescheduled date, June 20th! 🙂
Oh here come all of my waterworks. My absolutely ride is going on a solo tour for her latest release Petals for Armor!!
The first time I saw Paramore perform was in Hell at The Masquerade back in 2006 and never looked back. Miracle makes me sob. The Fake Happy hat I bought at the After Laughter tour has carried me through the last two years. Careful, Brighter. And every record, there’s the acoustic track a little past half way that rips you a fresh, new, more fortified heart.
It’s a lucky thing to have this lyricist as a part of our generation.
p.s. here’s a video interview I co-filmed & edited for my local (and favorite and best ever!!) alternative radio station 99x Atlanta during my undergrad internship 😂🙏🏾 They speak sweetly on the importance of independent music shops, their influences within the scene, and the story behind That’s What You Get.
