When you listen to a great song and all you want to do is dance – the last thing you want to be wearing is something you can’t move in. I love adding one casual and comfy piece for a night out at a show…like an oversized t-shirt, beanie + side braid, sweatshirt, my favorite worn in jeans, or sneakers in a great color.
Need some music to get you in the dancing mood? Check out my updated 2013 playlist. It includes a fun song by Willy Moon (who also happens to be super stylish himself).
AND it just so happens I’m giving away two tickets to Willy’s show at U Street Music Hall this Friday night! Who wants to come dance with me? If you’re not convinced, watch his video:
To enter, leave a comment below with your current favorite dance song. (I’ll even add some of them to my playlist.) Bonus points for tweeting about this giveaway using #WillyMUHall.
And if you can’t wait to see if you win on Thursday, you can always purchase tickets here.
DC has some great concert venues and in the next month or so I’m really excited to go to a couple of shows. It’s one of the best things to do in the winter, right? It’s not like I can spend a Friday night soaking up the sun at jazz in the garden…might as well stay warm by singing and dancing around with a few hundred friends to some great music. And you’ll most likely find me in an outfit just like the one above. Comfy, practical, a little more bad-ass than I actually am.
I’m excited to team up with the 9:30 Club for a great giveaway for two tickets to the Vaccines show on Friday February 1st. To enter, leave a comment below sharing one of your current favorite songs. (I made a small playlist of some of the songs I have on repeat – check it out on spotify!) For an extra entry, tweet about the giveaway using the hashtag #Vaccines930.
I’ll announce the winner next Friday but if you don’t want to wait or you definitely want to end up at the show with yours truly, you can buy your tickets here. Hope to see ya there!
Oh, yes, I’m not afraid to admit it. My favorite band is Hanson. Of course I loved mmmbop the first time I heard it in 4th grade. But they’ve grown up too and I’ve continued to listen to their music for the past 15 years. Yeah, they’re still making music. Did you know that?
Last night I went to my fifth Hanson concert (yep, you heard that). After the past few weeks I’ve been having, this concert was exactly what I needed. They played my absolute favorite songs, including an early one I’ve never heard them play live but always wanted to. I sang very loudly, danced the whole time and just let loose. Man, I needed that. Thanks, guys.
Before you judge, listen to this song. I mean come on, don’t tell me it doesn’t make you get up and shake your booty.
So, what’s your guilty pleasure? What makes you forget all of your worries and stress and and just makes you smile and jump around like you’re a pre-teen again?
