Touring Life (6.25.14)

Danny and I

Whoooohooooo! I am neck deep in touring life. It has been almost a week since I joined Warped Tour with Danny, and I still have four days left before I fly out. Quite the little stay in tour town :)  

My trip has been stellar so far, and I have never done a blog post about traveling, but I feel like now is for the best. I am in a Starbucks with solid internet and coffee, the band doesn't play until 4:45 PM today and there is an interview on the bus with the E! network so I had to head out on my own for a bit. This seems like the best time to document my trip so far.

 

Last Thursday I left Sarasota airport bright and early headed for Las Vegas. Little did I know that the biggest music festival in the US was also going on in Vegas this particular weekend, Electric Daisy Carnival. I met some interesting people on my way who obviously were huge fans of music, just not quite the We the Kings kind. Still fun though. I also took the most epic airport selfie.

Gotta love that vlog stick :) In Vegas we went gambling (a little), bought Danny his first suit, ambushed an Urban Outfitters for new rompers and ate at the lovely Hofbrauhaus. We've now officially eaten in the original in Munich and the extra fun one in Vegas. Both were delightful.

 

The next day brought us to Pomona, CA where I went for a run through the hills and begged people to bring me Starbucks. Followed by a stop in San Fran where I visited with family and enjoyed the beautiful weather. We also found a fan's wallet and turned it in to the venue where she picked it up yesterday fully in tact! Good wallet karma for Danny :)

Then we were in Ventura followed by 2 days off in Los Angeles. We did a podcast for The Danny Duncan Show and visited with our good friend Jake from Mayday Parade, and his girlfriend, Jes. They're amazing.

Overall, tour life has been pretty fantastic. Lots of hanging with my boyfriend, shopping and even great luck finding frequent showers. I am starting to get a little homesick for my pup and bed though. We still have Vidcon ahead of us, as well as, three more shows before I skip town :)

I think my Warped Tour Do's and Don'ts still ring true from the original video I made>

But I do think there are a couple of things I could add:

#1 Deodorant: It's pretty obvious, but I just forgot to say it.

#2 Wet Wipes: Whether it's to wash your hands before lunch, clean a spill off of you, or when the Port-a-Potty is out of teepee, they definitely come in handy.

#3 Towel: If you're actually touring DO NOT forget a towel to shower with. I totally did and felt so silly the first time I showered and had to air dry.

Well everyone, I will catch up with you again soon.

 

Much Love,

Lindsey <3

Summer '14 Playlist

Screen shot 2014-04-04 at 11.33.30 PM

Flowers are finally blooming, birds are chirping and everyone up North is finally getting to take off their snowboots. It's time for some summer inspiration. In Florida, it's already pretty much been hot as balls for two weeks now, so I feel like I've been easily getting great summer time inspiration.  

Music moves me. Dating a drummer is no coincidence. There is something so sexy about a person who creates music. And in turn, just something sexy about great music. I thought this would be a great time to tell you all about some of my favorites that I have been blaring as we welcome Summer '14. Maybe you love it, maybe you hate it. Maybe there's a shameless plug (it's still a really good song though). But maybe, just maybe... one of these will be your summer anthem. Here's too being a little sunkissed, too late nights and sand between your toes!

 

"Girls Like You" The Naked and Famous

I'm pretty hopelessly obsessed with this song right now, and it's like three years old. I don't even care. I'm a lyrically driven music listener, and the lyrics to this are killer. No one wants to be the girl their talking about in this song. It's a pretty deep cut to someone. There's a girl out there who hears this song in a club and loses it every time. "Don't you know people write songs about girls like you?" is not a compliment.  The positive? Dat beat.

"I Like It" We the Kings

Uh, yeah. You hear that drummer? I touch him on the regular. This is my favorite song off of Somewhere, Somehow to jam too. I love how upbeat it is. And guess what... I like it.

"You & Me" Disclosure featuring Eliza Doolittle (Baauer Remix)

I am a Disclosure addict right now. This DJ duo can do no wrong in my eyes. This fun little remix of one of my faves off of Settle, has been one of the best work out and party jams. It kind of makes me feel like I am a child, back in the 90's, hangin' at the skating rink... And I love that about it.

"Ain't It Fun" Paramore

Haley is amazing. She's the best live, she writes fantastic music and she's just an overall badass at life. Great band. Great song.

"Fantasy" MS MR (Nicita Remix)

This is just good.

"Latch (Acoustic)" Sam Smith

Honestly, this is my wedding song whenever that happens. Sam's voice is amazing. I love everything about this. Dreamy.

"Revolution" Diplo

Had to have some Diplo on here. If you have never heard this song, you're missing out. He's my favorite DJ and I love everything he's doing... except "Black Sheep" by Katy Perry. gross.

"Turn Down For What" DJ Snake, Lil Jon

Ultimate party song for an ultimately amazing summer. The boner in the video makes me laugh so hard.
