summer and fall @ the hollywood bowl

guess who i'm excited to see next weekend? check out the spectacular schedule for the hollywood bowl.

July 18th: The Swell Season/She & Him/The Bird and the Bee [tix]
i've never seen she & him live, so my MOST anticipated band for the night vote goes to them.  they'll be backed (in part) by a band called the chapin sisters (check out a free d/l of their song "digging a hole" here, as well as a rad cover of britney spears' "toxic" on their myspace page). i've never seen once (movie site here) but i have heard many a good thing about the swell season, so that should be epic as well.  it'll be my first time picnic-ing at the hollywood bowl, so i'm going to say a little prayer to the weather gods... be good to me, please!

August 29: Chemical Brothers/Chromeo/Yacht [tix]

Sept. 18th: Phoenix/Grizzly Bear/Girls [tix]
seriously contemplating checking this one out. phoenix!

Sept. 19th: Viva Mexico! [tix]

Sept. 26th: Vampire Weekend/Beach House/The Very Best [tix]
vampire weekend was definitely one of those bands that i REALLY did not want to like. i mean, really. i resisted for a really long time. for one, their name had the word vampire in it... and you all know how annoyingly-into-twilight i am (say it out loud... say it). secondly, everyone was raving about them. EVERYONE. which made me feel like this.  now i'm tired of resisting. it's going to be awesome.

Sept. 30: Pavement/Sonic Youth/No Age [tix]

waiting for the day we're both safe in LA

gold motel is greta morgan's (pssst: formerly greta salpeter of the hush sound) debut solo effort. after packing her bags, greta, an illinois native (i mean, according to wikipedia), headed out to the golden coast of southern california to write some songs... songs which would eventually become summer house, gold motel's full length album which was released on june 1, 2010.

you can actually stream the whole album here on their myspace page. purchase a copy of summer house from their webstore or send yourself (or your friends) a personalized (handmade and screen printed) postcard from greta herself. Why? Because snail mail is fun! we should be best friends, greta.

[gold motel - we're on the run (music vid)]

[gold motel - perfect in my mind (music vid)] has an exclusive video for "safe in la" here. now, if only it'd start being summer and we'd stop having so much june gloom and random spurts of rain around here...

I KNOW, I'M SORRY YOU GUISE, I HATE TO ADMIT THIS BUT: I WENT TO SEE ECLIPSE at a midnight showing and I KIND OF REALLY LIKED IT. THE FILM. the dismembering and decapitating was pretty rad. bryce dallas howard and kstew's wigs were not, however. but i'm very forgiving.
